WEST ROXBURY, Mass. (WHDH) - Richard Parris, President of the Boston Firefighters Local 718, said Michael Kennedy served his country and his city proudly.

"Michael Kennedy lived by simple values. He expressed himself directly. He had a knack for finding humor in every situation," Parris said, adding that he hoped those who knew Michael could find peace in his memories.

"The city of Boston has lost one of its bravest and our country has lost a dedicated veteran. Most people would refer to Michael as a hero, but knowing him, it was just a call to duty to protect his country and the city he loved," Parris said of Kennedy, a former Marine.
