Anthony Incarbone was one of my friends I played hockey with down at Avenue F. He was a goaltender like me, and also a native from the neighborhood. I think “Inky” as we used to call him grew up somewhere on East Fourth near IHM. So actually he was a Windsor Terrace guy.
Now many of the guys I played hockey with became New York City firemen, including Inky. He used to work at ladder 113 in Brooklyn, and also worked for months down at the WTC after 9/11.
Inky passed away this past January of 2009, and left behind family and friends that miss him dearly.
Now some of the boys are holding a fund raiser and mass for our old friend and here are the details:
May 16, Immaculate Heart of Mary Church at 11 am (memorial service)
Fund Raiser for Anthony’s family following the mass on May 16 from 2-7 pm at:
Bishop Ford High School 500 Nineteenth Street at PPW Brooklyn, NY 718 360 2510
A 20 dollar donation at the door. Music, sandwiches, salads, beer, soda. There's also a raffle too if you are interested.
So please help support the family of a great guy and a true hero of Brooklyn. Because Inky died of lung cancer after helping out down at the WTC site, and we are all proud to have known him and call him our friend.
