Sunshine to start with a few clouds but it's all about the Lake Breeze this afternoon! Some areas might only make it into the upper 40s! If you have a north breeze…you'll be chilly. Head to Akron! LOL High: 54

Partly cloudy. With clouds increasing in front of rain by the afternoon.

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Firefighters from across the country paid their respects to

on Tuesday at his visitation held at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

"It's hard to even begin to list the support from firefighters across the country,” said Doug Stern from the Cincinnati Fire Department.

While nearly every local fire agency sent representatives, firefighters states away attended as well.

"As soon as we found out, we made arrangements to come down,” said Bryan Clarke with the Chicago Fire Department.

Clarke, along with dozens of other Chicago firefighters, made the four-hour trip after hearing Gordon's passing through social media. Without any organized effort, several took days off from their own firehouses to pay their respects. Clarke said while they never knew Daryl Gordon, they know exactly what his sacrifice is worth.

"We all know the dangers of the job and we all accept it for what it is and we know this could happen to any one of us. When it does happen, it's an unfortunate incident and we just try to be there to support the guys,” said Clarke.

Jack Reall, Battalion Chief with Columbus Fire and president of the Columbus Fire Union Local 38, said no matter where a firefighter makes the ultimate sacrifice, it's a tradition in the fire service to attend his or her visitation and funeral. Like Gordon, firefighters killed in the line of duty are always given a hero's tribute.

"A lot of us will only experience this once in our career but it is something that we need to make sure carries on forever because a firefighter's life is never lost if we remember them,” said Reall.

Cincinnati Fire Department said it took 50 firefighters working non-stop since Gordon's passing to plan his services in just one week. More than 4,000 people are expected to attend.
