Firefighter/Paramedic Rich Mahoney was a great friend and mentor to all who knew him; and a genuine “Fireman’s Fireman”. Richie had been a member of the Westchester Fire department proudly serving MABAS Division 20 and the Village of Westchester for 21 years. During his tenure he has served on several specialty rescue teams and most recently as a SWAT medic with NIPAS. Around the fire station, Richie was also always the guy who could get any/all tasks done. His presence in our fire department family is one that can never be filled. We are all better for having known Richie. He will be missed.
