UTICA – Funeral services were held Wednesday morning in honor of Anthony "Pags" Pagliaro.

A number of friends, family and first responders gathered at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Utica to pay their respects to Pagliaro, who died last week following a nearly five-year battle with cancer. He was 36 years old.

Pagliaro served as EMS chief for the Schuyler Fire Department and he was the first recipient of the Believe 271 Foundation, a local organization that provides financial assistance to firefighters, EMTs and ladies auxiliary members fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

Pagliaro worked for Kunkel Ambulance for the last 18 years, and he was described as being one of the best they’ve ever had. His casket was carried to the church on Wednesday in his Schuyler ambulance, and his funeral had full firefighter honors.
