Back in December, we told you about the story of Barnegat resident Kyle McGetrick, who had been battling cancer since age 5. During the holidays, Fire departments from all over Ocean County surprised Kyle with an impromptu (and loud) parade of fire trucks past the McGetrick house.

Unfortunately, we are sad to report that Kyle has lost his battle against this terrible disease. In honor of his inspiration to the community, Barnegat will hold a candlelight vigil tonight at 8 along Barnegat Boulevard in front of Cecil S. Collins School. You can get more information from Barnegat Patch here.
