Firefighters, police officers, family and friends gathered in Yonkers on Saturday to pay tribute to fallen firefighter Neill Tyndal Jr.

Tyndal went to Ground Zero follow the 9/11 attacks to aid with the recovery effort, and passed away earlier this week from a 9/11-related illness.

"He was a fun guy," Capt. James Wazolek, of the Yonkers Fire Department, said. "Always had a practical joke, always made you laugh. If you knew he was working, you knew you were going to have a good day."

A husband and father of two, Tyndal was also remembered as a man devoted to his family.

Tyndal's funeral is scheduled for Monday. His family is asking for donations to be made in his honor to the Ronald McDonald House.
