Hundreds of mourners—family, friends and firefighters—paid their last respects to Greenwich Deputy Fire Marshal John Fronio on Friday.
The 57-year-old at Greenwich Hospital.
Hundreds of his fellow Greenwich firefighters, the Greenwich Police Department, Greenwich Emergency Medical Service, the Connecticut State Police Fire Marshals, the New York City Fire Department, and the Stamford and Monroe Fire departments lived Riverside Avenue and the driveway of St. Catherine of Siena Church in Riverside where a funeral Mass was held for Fronio.
Fronio was a parishoner of St. Catherine's since childhood, said the Rev. Steve DeLuca, who co-celebrated the Mass with Msgr. Alan Detscher.
In addition to a fire department honor guard, a US Marine honor guard was present. Fronio served the Marines in Vietnam.
He is survived by his wife Joanne, their son Joseph and their daughter Jennifer, and two grandchildren.
