Daniel had a connection to the ocean, and loved going to the beach with family and friends, especially Long Beach Island and Manasquan Beach. A powerful presence, he could always rally the troops.

09/10/2017 - Lancaster 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb:  All Day
Onsite Registration: 0800 Climb Start Time: 0900 Climb End Time: 1200 Online registration is open until midnight Saturday, August 26th. You can register onsite the day of the event starting at 8:00 AM. The 9/11 Lancaster Memorial Stair Climb is a way for all firefighters to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on 9-11-2001. Each participant pays tribute to an FDNY firefighter by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Your individual tribute not only remembers the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Through firefighter and community participation, we can ensure that each of the 343 firefighters is honored and that the world knows that we will never forget. The Stair Climb benefits the FDNY Counseling Services Unit, helps cover the costs for FDNY families to attend Memorial Weekend, and the programs provided by the NFFF to support the families of our nation’s fallen firefighters.
