PHOTO: They gathered to honor and remember the selfless beauty of the man. His sharing of himself - of his time, his heart, his soul. Humanity with no end, no matter the time or place. An altruism dedicated to making folks safer throughout his community and around the world. Allentown Fire Department Assistant Chief Christopher Kiskeravage devoted nearly all of his 56 years of life to helping others - until he died of pancreatic cancer last June and was called to climb that final ladder to heaven. In the end, the paradox is unmistakable: A husband, father and grandfather who shared chunks of himself with others in order to make himself whole. Fellow firefighters, new recruits, family and friends gathered outside the Mack Southside Fire Station and Training Academy on Friday morning as Kiskeravage, the retired assistant chief for training, was honored with the dedication of a memorial sign along Lehigh Street.
