DENVER- South Metro firefighter Cody Mooney recently lost his courageous fight against an aggressive brain tumor.

The 31-year-old left behind a wife and four children. His wife is also expected to give birth to their fifth child any day now.

Mooney spent his life saving lives, so it seems fitting that his last act will also save a life.

This past Saturday, Mooney was honored by family, friends, fellow firefighters, and hospital staff at Littleton Hospital as he was escorted to donate his organs.

South Metro Fire shared a video of this moment, which can be seen below.

South Metro Fire has provided a link to a GoFundme page for Mooney’s family.
