STRATFORD - Friends and family gathered today at Saint Mark's Parish to say their final farewells to a Stratford firefighter. Mourners gathered for the marching procession as it left Fire Company No. 2 early this morning, honoring Lt. Thomas McCabe. As News 12 Connecticut has reported, 54-year-old McCabe died Tuesday from cardiac arrest at his home. McCabe's friends say he will be remembered as a great man whom everyone should have had the chance to know. "Tom was just a phenomenal man," says Dave Ingmanson, of Stratford. "His family, his kids meant the whole world to him."
