Mario Serafino, known to us all as "Bucky," is pictured in this 1952 Hamden Chronicle photo. A generous blood donor, Bucky and fellow Hamden firefighter George Reutenauer were the first two members of the Hamden Gallon Club. Bucky joined the Hamden Fire Department in 1942, retired on November 10, 1973 and was a Life Member of the New Haven County Fire Emergency Plan. Bucky Serafino passed away on February 14, 2001, at the age of 91.
