    Joseph T. McGuirk

    A firefighter like his dad, that's what he wanted to be

    He had a name as rugged and proud as his profession.

    Joseph T. McGuirk had firefighting in his blood.

    The youngest in a family of 10 children, he grew up the son of a Worcester firefighter, and the brother, nephew and cousin of Worcester firefighters.

    Firefighter McGuirk, who died in Friday night's warehouse catastrophe, was sworn in as a member of the department two years ago yesterday, on Dec. 5, 1997.
