Retired Detective Ronald Richards, 45, of the NYPD Retired Detective Ronald Richards, 45, of the NYPD bomb squad, died Sunday after a long, 9/11-related illness.

Richards was assigned to Emergency Service Truck 5 in Staten Island on 9/11 and he responded when the planes struck the World Trade Center.

He was trapped in a collapsed garage for hours before he could dig out himself and others who were trapped with him. Afterward, he worked at the site and at the Staten Island landfill for months.

Richards was transferred to the bomb squad in February 2002, where he was later promoted to second grade.

He was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2007, and was forced to retire in 2008.

The hero detective is survived by his wife of 17 years, Millie, and four daughters, Tyla, 17, Madison, 15, Makayla, 9, and Chloe, 8, plus his father, Ronald, a retired correction officer, and his mother, Clare.

We honor you, Ronald Richards.

Gerald T. Atwood was a member of the Sons of the A Gerald T. Atwood was a member of the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 1060 in Brooklyn, NY. He was a firefighter with Engine 34, Ladder 21. He was an eight year veteran of the FDNY working out of Hell’s Kitchen.

He grew up in the Old Mill Basin neighborhood of Brooklyn. He graduated from South Shore High School and spent two years at Kingsborough Community College. Earlier he ran a renovation business with his brother.

His wife Barbara said he possessed an infectious laugh. “He liked simple things, doing projects, sharing tools, helping neighbors with their houses. Or he’d go on trips with his brothers, fishing trips.” He had a wide range of interests and a retentive memory. “He’d read the paper and know everything in it, from politics to sports,” she said.

At the time of his death, he was survived by his wife Barbara, his son Gerald, 2, and his daughter Margaret, 1. Another child was as yet unborn at the time of his passing. Also surviving were his parents, Gerald and Elaine; brothers John, Raymond and Gregory, and sisters Jane and Elaine. (source Newsday.com)

It could be said that Gerald Atwood’s life ended on September 11, 2001.

I prefer to say that he continues to live and that his life continues.

His life is reflected by the way his children live their lives. Had he remained on earth to see his children grow and progress and become energetic, contributing members of society, it would be said of him “your children have learned what you lived.”

So can it be said still. It is not how we die that makes us heroic. 

It is how we live.

We honor you, Gerald Atwood.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Firefighter Arthur T. Barr STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Firefighter Arthur T. Barry enjoyed his freedom. The 35-year-old spent much of his youth zooming across the American continent on many road trips, all the way to California.

Last year he took a 10,000-mile motorcycle tour diagonally through Canada to Fairbanks, Alaska, and then returned across the northern United States. It took him about a month to eat all that road.

But Mr. Barry's triumphant adventures came to a tragic end on Sept. 11. The lifelong resident of Westerleigh, a member of Lower Manhattan's Ladder Co. 15, was on vacation that day. Mr. Barry, who was a handy mechanic, rode the Staten Island Ferry into the city just to drop off a heavy-duty machine at his firehouse near the South Street Seaport.

Arriving after the company had responded to the attack on the World Trade Center's Tower 1, he found a friend, Firefighter Eric Olsen, and the two of them walked to the scene of the disaster.

Mr. Barry, who remains among the missing, was last seen entering the first tower that was struck. 

His sister, Dr. Patricia A. Barry Cosgrove, and her husband, Dr. John Cosgrove, also responded to the tragic event by administering to the survivors and the rescuers.

Mr. Barry joined the Fire Department in 1993 and was first assigned to Ladder Co. 118 in Brooklyn. He transferred to Ladder Co. 15 a year later. Before the Fire Department, he worked as an elevator mechanic for Advance Elevator, New Brunswick, N.J., and a machine-tool technician for A-1 Machine and Tool Co., Elizabeth, N.J. 

He enjoyed swimming and not only went on road trips, but often flew to many destinations all over the country.

We honor you, Arthur Barry.

Firefighting wasn’t Paul Keating’s first calli Firefighting wasn’t Paul Keating’s first calling. He bounced from job to job before entering the New York City Fire Department. But it became his passion. Keating, 38, was counted a hero even before Sept. 11. Soon after his 1995 graduation from the academy he rescued a drowning man from the ocean at Spring Lake, N.J. Known as “Paulie” by his comrades, Keating was stationed at Ladder Co. 5 in SoHo. He was in his apartment near the World Trade Center when the first plane hit Tower One, and didn’t hesitate to race to the scene.

We honor you, Paul Keating.

Allan Tarasiewicz, FDNY, Rescue 5, was killed on Allan Tarasiewicz, FDNY, Rescue 5,  was killed on September 11, 2001. 

At 5 feet, 6 inches, Allan Tarasiewicz, 45, was the shortest man in Staten Island’s Rescue Co. 5, so short the rest of the guys built him a little booster step so he could climb into the rig. Plus, that name – who could pronounce it? They gave up and called him “Taz.” But if Taz took a lot of teasing, he dished it right back, said Patricia Tarasiewicz, his wife of 24 years.

Her favorite revenge story was the time he prepared chicken cutlets for everyone in the firehouse. When one of the men complained about how tough his was, he found out he was eating a breaded, fried, dirty old sponge. “He was the crazy man of the firehouse,” his wife said with satisfaction.

A Navy man’s daughter, she fell in love at first sight when she spotted the young Marine at a base in Italy and decided he was the sexiest man she’d ever seen. She wed him soon after in a military ceremony at Governor’s Island, and had his two kids, Allan Jr., now 23, and Melissa, 20. She followed him to jobs in California and Colorado before he landed with the fire department 11 years ago. His wife says the men of Rescue 5 were always very close.

When the fire department called on Sept. 10 to inform Allan Tarasiewicz that he had to work the next day — a day he planned to stay home — the Staten Island resident accepted the news. Getting calls for mandatory overtime was just part of being a firefighter. When not on duty, Tarasiewicz, a former Marine, also enjoyed scuba diving.

We honor you, Allan Tarasiewicz.
