Lt. Joseph G. Leavey, age 46 of NYFD, died tragically on September 11, 2001 at the WTC. He served at Engine 23, Ladder 4 & as a Lieutenant at Ladder 15. As an Engineering Major, he considered the WTC to be "an Engineering Marvel". How ironic that the building he loved would become the target of such hate.

He is survived by his wife, Carole; his son, Brian; his daughter, Caitlin; his stepdaughter, Kerri Kelly. He is also survived by his sisters, Maureen McGil-licuddy, Nora Coco and Patricia Sumner. He will be missed by his many other relatives.
