    Capt. Joseph Pagano, a 28-year veteran of the Middletown, Conn. Fire Department, died Friday, Nov. 3 while working at his desk in the station.

    Pagano, 52, went into cardiac arrest some time after 6 p.m., according to Deputy Chief Robert Kronenberger.

    Shortly before Pagano suffered the heart attack, he went to the kitchen to check to see when supper would be ready.

    The on-call firefighters told him it would be ten minutes, but after the captain failed to return they found him at his desk.

    Kronenberger said Pagano's presence at the department would be greatly missed.

    "Joe was a unique guy who always had a smile plastered on his face," he said. "He had an interesting way at looking at the world."
