✈ ▌▌NeverForget ✈ ▌▌the victims of 9/11 LINK IN PROFILE DENNIS BUCKLEY World Trade Center FROM LACROSSE TO POOL Dennis Buckley of Chatham, N.J., was a big man, 6 feet, 210 pounds, with an athletic build. He had been a star lacrosse player at Lynbrook High School and graduated from the University of Maryland, which he attended on a full lacrosse scholarship. "He still walks like he's carrying a lacrosse stick," said his wife, Cathleen, speaking of him in the present tense, although she had just come from making funeral arrangements. He was 38, a bond broker at Cantor Fitzgerald, the father of three girls ranging in age from 22 months to 6 years. A memory his wife holds dear is the massive Mr. Buckley taking his three girls, with their three pink Barbie doll towels, to the swim club. His eldest daughter, Mary Kate, had her sixth birthday 12 days after the attack, and Mrs. Buckley decided to go on with the party. "She's 6," Mrs. Buckley said. "Not having it would be like almost taking it away from her." She speaks of what has become a community of loss, the World Trade Center people who did not come home, and begins to weep. "As short as it was, I was really lucky to know him. Part of me looks at these younger widows. I at least have my family."

✈ ▌▌NeverForget ✈ ▌▌the victims of 9/11 LINK IN PROFILE STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Greg Buck was an accomplished woodworker, registered nurse, classical pianist and cook — and that was before he joined the Fire Department in 1995. He had graduated from nursing school and attended the Culinary Institute. He played the piano so well he could have been a professional musician, his wife said. And when Mr. Buck and his father restored the family home in Huguenot, the two were recognized for their work by the Preservation League of Staten Island. Mr. Buck, 37, a Huguenot resident, had taken the Fire Department test years earlier, but was ready for another challenge when the department called in 1995. A firefighter with Engine Co. 201 in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn, he has been missing since the Sept. 11 terror attacks on the World Trade Center. Among his many talents, lending an ear to friends and family was one of his best, said his wife, the former Catherine Morrison. "He could listen well, which I think is a talent not too many people have," said Mrs. Buck, a nurse practitioner. "He always appeared to be very quiet, but he was very special. He just smiled all the time. He was warm." The two met in the early 1990s when they were both attending nursing school at the College of Staten Island. Two months after they graduated together in 1995, Mr. Buck joined the Fire Department. They married two years ago and were in the midst of planning a family and buying their first home on Brady's Pond in Grasmere when the Sept. 11 attacks turned their lives upside down. #sep#september11a> #sept11 #911anniversary #september11 #september11th2001 #neverforget911 #worldtradecenter #groundzero #and#andresbarrilatwin #911victims #andresbarrila #911tribute #twintowers #wtc911memorial #bleeckerstreet #thompsonstreet #victims #91101 #911wtcofnyc #911heroes #911nyc #northtower #southtower #fdny #nypd #11deseptiembre2001 #hijacked #911remembrance #911memorial #911museum

✈ ▌▌NeverForget ✈ ▌▌the victims of 9/11 LINK IN PROFILE RONALD PAUL BUCCA World Trade Center RESCUER AND COUNSELOR Ronald Bucca was nicknamed "the Flying Fireman" in 1986 after he fell spectacularly from a tenement fire escape, spun around a cable strung through the backyard and lived to tell the tale. And that was just one of his moments. His specialty was rescuing mankind from smoke and flames, but he did not mind scorching certain people with his wit. His colleagues collected "Ron-isms." An example: "This one is as sharp as a basketball." He designed hats for other firemen with details that they found hilarious (but unfortunately, that were not printable). A firefighter for 23 years, the last nine as a fire marshal, he was also a nurse and a reservist in the United States Army's Special Forces. Mr. Bucca trained as an antiterrorist intelligence expert, and when the planes hit the towers on Sept. 11, he called his wife, Eve, and said he was heading to the scene. "He knew it was a terrorist attack," Mrs. Bucca said. "He had been expecting something like that for a very long time." Before that day, his final investigation had involved a young woman who set her former boyfriend's letters on fire and left them to burn in a toilet. He counseled her as a father might. "No guy is worth getting this upset over; don't be too concerned about this guy," he told her, said Keith O'Mara, his partner. "There are a lot of fish in the sea. And if this should ever happen again, think about buying yourself a paper shredder."

✈ ▌▌NeverForget ✈ ▌▌the victims of 9/11 LINK IN PROFILE CAPT. VINCENT BRUNTON World Trade Center A PICTURE OF INSPIRATION Cathy Brunton had always known that her husband, Vincent, the captain of Truck Company Ladder 105, loved being a firefighter. He joined the department 22 years ago, the same year they got married, the same year their daughter Kelly was born. But it was not until she received a four- page letter from a young firefighter she did not recall having met that Mrs. Brunton came to appreciate the kind of firefighter her husband had been, the lessons he was always prepared to teach and the depth of respect others had for him. "I could go into his office at 11:30 p.m. and ask him a fire question and he would lean back in his chair and tell me countless stories," the letter from the firefighter, Will Hickey, said. "He would say the best way to learn is from your mistakes. 'If you're not making mistakes, you are not trying.' " Even a false alarm provided an opportunity to learn. Mr. Hickey described how terrified he once had been at a fire with Captain Brunton. Flames were shooting out the windows and the roof. "I was thinking to myself, 'This guy is absolutely crazy! What is he thinking, he's John Wayne or something?' " But Captain Brunton, 43, took his arm and showed him what to do. "I have put a small picture of him on the underside of my helmet," Mr. Hickey said. "Sometimes I just touch it to remind me to stay calm, to keep it simple and to 'think on my feet.'"
