Fiore’s legacy

The Buffalo News - - WASHINGTON NEWS -

Ron Aught­mon idol­ized his un­cle, John J. Fiore, be­cause he never stopped serv­ing.

Fiore spent 30 years in the mil­i­tary, first as an ac­tive-duty Marine and then as an Air Force re­servist based in Ni­a­gara Falls. Back home in West­ern New York, he used his spare time rais­ing money for Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal and other lo­cal char­i­ties.

“Every­body knew him,” Aught­mon said. “He did so much good.”

So when Fiore died, Aught­mon vowed to do the same, in mem­ory of his un­cle.
