Wallington 06-26-14 John Barnas
*****Just four short months ago, the Wallington Fire Department said goodbye to another firefighter; Captain Greg Barnas, John's dad, who was a career firefighter with the Jersey City Fire Department and a volunteer with the Wallington Fire Department. Captain Barnas suffered a fatal heart attack while fighting a working fire in Wallington. He had been donating blood for his son John, who was suffering from Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a type of cancer. The Department sponsored a blood drive after Greg's death, to help John with the much needed blood transfusions, for his treatment. About a week ago, John was hospitalized with pneumonia. With John being in an already weakened condition, the pneumonia was just to much for his body to fight off, and sadly, he lost his valiant fight for life. And so, his 'Brothers' thought it only fitting and proper to honor his life and celebrate his passing with a full Inspector's Funeral, which they did. It culminated with one of the most touching ceremonies that I have ever witnessed. John loved life and was a great practical joker...he also had an affinity for Hawaiian shirts. Before his wake and funeral, John's mom Patricia Barnas, asked that all who had Hawaiian shirts, bring them and wear them at the repast which followed the funeral at his fire company on Johnson Ave. You will see some photos here of just that! Rest in Peace John, and take Dad's hand once again, to walk in the House of the Lord. God Bless.
