LITTLETON, Colo. – A South Metro firefighter who continuously risked his life to keep the community safe will continue to be saving lives even after his last breath.

Firefighter Cody Mooney was honored Saturday night by family, friends, fellow firefighters and staff at Littleton Adventist Hospital as his body was being escorted for organ donation.

Mooney, who was only 31 years old, lost a courageous fight against an aggressive brain tumor, a fire department official said via Twitter.

“South Metro personnel are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Cody and will continue to support his family through this difficult time,” an official said.

Mooney is survived by his wife, who is expecting a baby in just a few weeks, and the couple’s four other children.

If you’d like to help the family, you can do so by donating to a GoFundMe account set up by a childhood friend of Mooney’s, or you can also donate to the South Metro Professional Firefighters Foundation.
