Firefighter killed in collapse remembered for humor, spirit


PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia firefighter killed in a house collapse has been remembered for his sense of humor, love of his nieces and nephews and passion for his job.

Lt. Matthew LeTourneau’s brother told the congregation at his funeral Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul on Friday that his sibling had great respect for everyone he met.

The Rev. Dennis Gill told mourners LeTourneau was “a good man, a just man.” He adds, “to lay down your life is never empty.”
