HOW YOU CAN HELP: The son of a Wallington fire captain who died fighting a restaurant fire is waging his own battle: John Barnas needs blood donations in his fight against leukemia.
Thousands of firefighters, emergency workers and citizens attended a massive memorial procession Friday in honor of Gregory Barnas, a popular veteran firefighter who fell from a roof and died on Feb. 28 after serving the public for more than 40 years.
The captain, who volunteered for the Wallington squad and worked for the Jersey City Fire Department, had been donating blood cells for John — who, with his brother, Kevin, are both firefighters — as he undergoes chemotherapy.
