According to NBC Philadelphia, Eric Feltyberger, 43, a volunteer firefighter for the Pioneer Fire Co. in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, died Wednesday evening after falling from a third-floor balcony at a friend’s apartment.

Feltyberger Remembered as “One-of-a-Kind Guy”

Feltyberger, who became a volunteer firefighter at the age of 14, was preparing dinner at a friend’s apartment when he went outside to smoke and sat on a railing. He then lost his balance and fell, says Jenkintown police Chief Albert DeValentino.

According to Fire Chief Mike Brogan, Feltyberger didn’t volunteer for recognition, he did it because it needed to be done. “That’s the type of guy he was. Always giving, giving, giving,” says Brogan.
