Congratulations to Watkins Street legend, and L120 most Senior Member Andy Gargiulo, a United States Korean War Veteran, who will be honored as the Town of Babylon Conservative Party 2015 Man Of The Year! Mr. Gargiulo, (an ordained Deacon who spends most of his free time at local cemeteries quietly tending to the spiritual needs of grieving families) was assigned to L120 on April 16, 1957 and was an integral part of perhaps the most heralded group of firefighters our Department may have ever seen during the FDNY War Years. Following a distinguished career in the FDNY, Andy went on to become a High School teacher and coach impacting many along the way. Affectionately known as “The Gentle Giant” around Watkins Street, he was an honored guest at the recent E231/L120/Bn44 Company Dance receiving a standing ovation by all in attendance.
The Town of Babylon cordially invites all current and former Watkins Street members to join in a celebration toasting the 2015 Man Of The Year, Andy Gargiulo on September 27, 2015 (1PM Softball Game/3PM BBQ) at Amityville Beach Pavilion, Bayview Ave, Amityville.
Congratulations to one of the very best of “The Bravest”
