Patrick Piserchio


There are some born into this world with an intrinsic gift of generosity, whose defining purpose is to help those around them with an endless supply of energy and a boundless drive for hard work and integrity.

Patrick was one of these few.

With a passion for firefighting that went well beyond his retirement, words cannot adequately express the impact he had on so many.

His valor was proven and the commendations earned, yet the one fire that will never be extinguished is the love Patrick had for his family.


To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - Patrick's family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following


St. Barnabas Burn Foundation

The Burn Center at Saint Barnabas is the only state-certified burn treatment facility in New Jersey and one of the largest in North America. In addition to providing free fire prevention and burn education programs in the community, the St. Barnabas Burn Foundation also provides assistance to burn patients treated at the Burn Center and their families, and helps secure funding for necessary equipment needed to continue to help patients in the Burn Center recover their lives.
