This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Lt. Philip S. Petti, 43, FDNY, Ladder 12, who was killed on September 11, 2001. He remains among the more than 300 firefighters missing after the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
Born in Brooklyn, he moved to Great Kills in 1984, and settled in Midland Beach in 1987. Mr. Petti joined the New York Fire Department in 1984. He was first assigned to Ladder 9 in Manhattan. After several years, he transferred to Ladder 85 in Westerleigh, before being assigned to Ladder 148 in Brooklyn, where he was promoted to lieutenant. He was recently assigned to Ladder 12.
"He was an amazing man of honor, compassion and love," said his wife, the former Eileen R. Alford. "Phil is now a guardian angel to all who need him since Sept. 11, 2001."
Mr. Petti enjoyed playing ice hockey in various FDNY leagues. A devoted husband and father, Mr. Petti was a parishioner at St. Margaret Mary's R.C. Church, Midland Beach, and coached CYO baseball and soccer at its school. "Everybody loves him," his wife said. "Phil was a great guy who enjoyed a humble, easygoing life. A son, brother, husband, son- and brother-in-law, father, godfather, uncle, cousin, fireman, friend, neighbor, coach, volunteer and hero -- we all knew the same good person. We all enjoyed his smile, and we all know that he is with God and forever in our hearts."
