Fire Marshal Paul J. Pansini was a proud American. He served in the U.S. Naval Reserve and began his civil service career as a N.Y.C. Police officer. An outstanding firefighter‚ he was also a Judo Shodan. He won a bronze medal at the 1991 Police and Fire games and a silver medal in 1992 during the games in Las Vegas. Firefighter Pansini helped to raise money for the N.Y.C. Burn Foundation and the Thomas Elsasser Fund.
On his off time he was always with his wife and children‚ they went everywhere together. Lake George in upstate New York was his favorite place in the world. He loved fishing and hiking. He was also a very comical person and always had a smile
I don’t think he knew how much he meant to so many people. So kind and helpful. He always made you laugh. He was my high school sweetheart‚ the love of my life‚ the best father to his children. He was always our hero; he is our special angel.
