The body of an Irishman was found in an apartment that was on fire in Yonkers on Thursday evening, July 9.
Wiseman, who has a four-year-old son with his former partner in New York, was well known and loved in the community. Known as "Feisti," he enjoyed the company of his friends, particularly over a game of cards.
Wiseman, who worked in construction, was living in New York more than a decade. He comes from a large Irish family of nine children, some of whom also live in the U.S.
Wiseman’s body was flown home to Ireland for burial this week.
