Today We Remember Captain William Burke, Jr., 46-years-old, Engine Co. 21.

On Sept. 11th, 2001, Capt. Burke called his friend Jean on his way to the World Trade Center. She begged him to stay away and he responded, “This is what I do.” His father, William Burke, was a fire chief, and he aspired to be the man his father was. He dreamed since childhood of fighting fires. He never forgot the lessons his dad offered about what to do inside a burning building: Get the civilians out, and then take care of your men.

On the 27th floor of the North tower, a congregation of firefighters had gathered. They were dispersing to find straggling civilians when they came across Ed Beyea, a wheelchair bound quadriplegic. With Ed was his friend Abe, who refused to leave the building without him. The firemen were having trouble figuring out how to evacuate Ed as he was a 280 lb man and couldn’t easily be lifted down the stairs.

Suddenly, the building shook and swayed. A shock wave rippled through. Capt. Burke ran to the window and said, “The south tower just collapsed.” Mayday was declared and the firemen began to evacuate.
Ed Beyea, bound to his wheelchair, helplessly watched people stream past him with his friend Abe by his side. “We’ve got to get them out,” Billy said. He then told his own men from Engine 21 to go ahead and get out of the building. They heard Burke on their radio encouraging them as they made their way down saying, “I’ll meet you by the rig” and “I’m right behind you.” About 28 minutes later, the north tower fell.

THOMAS DANIEL BURKE
World Trade Center
BONDS: FINANCIAL AND FAMILY

Tom Burke was the quintessential Wall Street man.

He broke into the bond business this way: It was 1985 and he was fresh out of Holy Cross. Nobody wanted him. Undeterred, he put on his suit every day and attended training courses at Liberty Brokerage ‹ uninvited. Impressed, the company hired him after three months.

Eventually, Mr. Burke, 38, became a partner at Cantor Fitzgerald, heading the government bond desk. He lived with his wife and children in Bedford Hills, N.Y.

He had a big personality. He knew how to hold his drink and when to hold his cards. He was the kind of person you wanted to be seated next to at a dinner party.

That was the Wall Street man. There was also the private man. "He was successful, but that's not what made him happiest," said his sister, Nancy Salter. "It was his family." That was the part the young guns did not see, the part not learned in college. Tom Burke's mother always had a happy birthday. Tom Burke's family never wondered where Daddy was. Tom Burke's friends never lay sick, alone.

MATTHEW J. BURKE
World Trade Center
Matthew Burke, 28, was an assistant equities trader at Cantor Fitzgerald on the 104th floor of the World Trade Center. He was a graduate of Xavier High School in Manhattan and Fordham University. Matt resided in Manhattan and spent much of his time with family and friends in Breezy Point, New York.

Matt is survived by his parents, John ("Jay") and Alice; his older brothers, John and Paul; his older sister, Alicia; his younger sister, Anne Marie; his younger brothers, Kevin and Terrence; his girlfriend, Kara Maurer; and countless friends.
At Xavier, he played rugby and was the starting quarterback of the school's football team in 1991. According to friends, Matt threw the most touchdown passes in the city that year, a feat matched by the number of interceptions he threw.
At Fordham University, Matt supplemented his studies by tending bar. After graduation, he continued to tend bar in New York City at Sutton Place, Rathbone's, and other establishments. "When Matt was behind the bar, he had a way of picking up the energy level of the whole place," said John Henley. "He was always in a good mood and had a way of making sure that you were too." Matt had been with Cantor Fitzgerald since 1996, working in offices in New York, Connecticut and California.
A memorial service will be held at noon on Saturday, September 29, at St. Thomas More Church, 20425 Rockaway Point Boulevard, Breezy Point, New York 11697.

STEPHEN BUNIN
World Trade Center
BUGS BUNNY TO BOB MARLEY "Stevie, you know you're a strange person," Hyacinth Bunin would say with great delight to her husband, Stephen Bunin. And he graciously accepted the compliment.
Mr. Bunin, 44, was a systems administrator, a computer guy, at Cantor Fitzgerald, but oh, that does not tell the story. He was quiet enough, but made buoyant by his goofy sense of humor. He was an inveterate Trekkie, a fan of the Three Stooges and Bugs Bunny cartoons, and he spent every summer Sunday wading into a Long Island pond to launch his prized motorized sailboats. He was a nut about foreign cars, and he was enamored of all things from the homeland of his wife, Hyacinth: "I'm a Jewmaican!" he would say.
He eventually became a Seventh-day Adventist, one of a handful of white members of the couple's Queens church, and was an easygoing, approachable man whom teenagers sought out for advice. But Mr. Bunin also checked in with his mother, Corinne, and sister, Kitty, almost daily, celebrating holidays with them. An enduring image: Mr. Bunin playing guitar and singing, awfully but with earnest intention, Bob Marley's "No Woman No Cry." Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on September 9, 2002.

22-year-old Lynne Morris loved to laugh, but even more than that, she lived to love. She loved many and many loved her. She had a gift of looking beyond one's outward appearance and seeing what truly mattered, which was what was on the inside.
She worked hard on her tan each summer and during spring break sprees, but according to her mother, Pat, that was Lynne's only glimmer of vanity. "She always worried about everyone else more than herself," said her older sister, Chrissy, "and she told me that it sometimes got her in trouble."
Lynne lived her whole life in Monroe, New York, and grew from a shy little girl who would hardly leave her mother's side to an extremely outgoing young woman who struck up conversations with strangers wherever she went. To her friends, Lynne was a lighthouse — an ever-standing, ever-glowing presence that guided the way when times were tough. "She was a true companion, a partner-in-crime, a pal who I could always turn to," recalled Jaime Ulatowski, one of Lynne's many friends. "I would not be nearly as strong as I am today if it wasn't for Lynne."
Lynne vacillated between wanting to teach and hankering after a business career with a more hectic pace, which was what took her to Cantor Fitzgerald on the 101st floor of the World Trade Center's North Tower straight out of college. She worked logging trades into the company computers, but her ultimate goal was to rise up and make those trades herself.
Just months before losing her life on September 11th, Lynne rekindled her relationship with her college boyfriend, and they were on the verge of announcing their engagement.
When Lynne's mother was sitting on the deck outside of her home just over a month after 9/11, holding her daughter's just-issued death certificate, the grief seemed too much to bear. Then, on that warm October day, a butterfly landed on her face. And it dawned on her. There were pictures of butterflies all over Lynne's room — on the wall mirror, on the picture frames, even on the last Mother's Day card Lynne sent her. "So every time I see a butterfly in person or even on a little one's shirt, I think of Lynne," her mother said, "and I thank her for all she is to us."

JOHN E. BULAGA JR.
World Trade Center
HELPING THE FUTURE ARRIVE

John E. Bulaga Jr. and his wife, Michelle, were three days away from closing on their first house, in Haskell, N.J, when the World Trade Center was attacked. Mrs. Bulaga bought the house a few weeks later.

She will move into it soon with their two daughters, Rhiannon, who is 6, and the baby, Alannah, who is not quite 6 months old. "It's hard to think of what the future is going to hold," she said. "We had these plans, and now I have to make new plans or a different version of those plans." But, she said, John, 35, would have wanted her and the girls to go on with their lives, in their new home only minutes from where he and his wife grew up. Looking to the future is what he was all about.

Mr. Bulaga was a network engineer with eSpeed, a subsidiary of Cantor Fitzgerald. Since he was a boy watching the original "Star Trek" series, he has loved technology and all its implications for changing the world, his wife said. "He always wanted to have a hand in that, in helping the future to arrive," she said. "He was so happy that he could do that." Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on November 1, 2001.

PATRICK JOSEPH BUHSE
World Trade Center
LIVING LARGE, PLAYING HARD

The yelling, screaming, posturing and power plays of the trading floor were Patrick J. Buhse's idea of nirvana. A government bond trader for Cantor Fitzgerald, Mr. Buhse, 36, scrapped his way up from entry level in "the cage" at 18 and never worked anyplace else. "College or Cantor," was his take on higher education.

He lived large and played hard: Mr. Buhse was a Budweiser man. What he liked even better than amassing money was giving it away to relatives. A car here, a fur coat there, private school for the nieces and nephews. Sure, he drove a Honda, but it was brand-new. "He wasn't showy, but all his toys had to be new and clean," said his wife, Susan. "And his television had to be the biggest." Relentlessly social, Mr. Buhse looked for any excuse to entertain on the town or at home in Lincroft, N.J. He loved telling jokes, and was not above stealing other people's anecdotes and improving them. He doted on his two children and reserved Friday nights for family in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, where he was the loudest of six siblings. "The glass was always half full, not half empty," his wife said. "His motto was, 'Live for the moment.' "

NANCY BUECHE
World Trade Center
HER DAUGHTER'S INSPIRATION

Nancy Bueche had a 10-year-old daughter, Bridget, and a full-time job at Aon Corporation in the World Trade Center, and was within months of receiving a bachelor's degree in business administration. Bridget was a primary reason for Mrs. Bueche to push herself to attend night classes for three years, said Jim Bueche, her husband. "She wanted to show our daughter you can do it," he said. "Anything she did, she did for our daughter." On weekends, he said, Mrs. Bueche, 43, and Bridget were inseparable. "Starting Friday night all the way through Sunday," he said. In the summer, they would pick up Mrs. Bueche's mother, go to the beach and return to their home in Hicksville, on Long Island, for Mr. Bueche's barbecue.

In the winter, he said, they would shop. "As soon as it started to get cold," he said. "Clothes for Bridget. Christmas presents for her mother. They'd hit the mall or some big sale somewhere. When they got tired of that, they'd go to children's movies. Or the library." Now, he said: "I try to keep her busy with friends and her softball team. But it isn't the same." A few weeks ago, Mr. Bueche and Bridget went to Briarcliffe College, which was giving Mrs. Bueche a posthumous honorary degree. Despite her grief, Bridget has kept up grades, he said. "I tell her: `Mother got all A's. You can do it, too.' "

DENNIS BUCKLEY

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." Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on September 29, 2001.

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.

BRANDON J. BUCHANAN
World Trade Center
THE WINNER WITHIN

There was talent and there was diligence, and then there was luck shining through Brandon J. Buchanan's days. Take the time he entered a contest, sponsored by Bloomingdale's, a block from his apartment, where the prize was a Ducati motorcycle. He really wanted to win. He hadn't heard anything, said his father, Ron, so he phoned the store one day to ask who had won. "It hasn't been announced yet," someone at the store told him. "Well, it wouldn't happen to be Brandon Buchanan, would it?" he asked.

The employee gasped and said, "How did you know?" It was a charmed life that Mr. Buchanan, 24, an equities trader at Cantor Fitzgerald, led in many ways. In other ways, his hard work made the difference. When he wanted to master some aspect of lacrosse, he would go out and drill the ball against the side of his family's barn in Honeoye Falls, N.Y., until he was satisfied. When he was 15 and wanted to fire up the neighborhood dogs, he began barking until they all joined in. Snow fell, and he hitched a toboggan to the family tractor and pulled his twin siblings around. "He was a beacon light," said his mother, Cheri, who was called "Mumzdarlin" by her son. "He really did lead all of us." Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on March 17, 2002.

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." Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on November 23, 2001.

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.'"

Just saw the musical Come From Away on Broadway in NYC. It was AMAZING! It touched my heart in so many ways. It is a story of kindness that needs to heard. #38divertedflights #Sept11 #neverforget @wecomefromaway #broadway #gander #newfoundland #hospitality #embracediversity #kissthecod #canada #flights #musical #broadway #nyc #internationalcommunity #humanity #kindness #gratitude #firefighters #neverforget

ANDREW C. BRUNN
World Trade Center
THE MAN IN FLANNEL

He was a tremendous pile of a man, 6 foot 2 and heavyset. His flannel shirt was tucked in, clarifying his dimension, as he flailed wildly about the dance floor of the bar in Queens.

Andrew Brunn was celebrating his 23rd birthday that night five years ago. Sigalit Cohen watched him all evening; she had a thing for flannel. His uninhibited dancing sometimes frightened the girls away, but "Sigal actually stuck in there and danced with him," said Patrick Sullivan, a friend.

She got his number and soon made a husband of Mr. Brunn, an intensely private man. He did not bother to tell his buddies in the Air National Guard of his computer studies or even of his marriage. He made little mention of his move to the Fire Department from the Police Department.

But after Sigalit danced with him, Mr. Brunn opened his life to her, revealing his passion for the ocean and for lighthouses, for movies that seemed to reflect their own story. They worked through the clashes between his Catholicism and her Judaism. Mr. Brunn, a devoted surfer, even persuaded Sigalit, who nearly drowned as a child, to join him on a flimsy board. "He said, `I'll be there with you; I'll hold you if you fall,' so I trusted him," Mrs. Brunn said. "And he did." Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on December 14, 2001.
