This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Dennis McHugh, FDNY, Ladder 13, who was killed on September 11, 2001.
The sun shone brightly on St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in Piermont, and the air was warm. But the hearts of Dennis P. McHugh’s friends, family and colleagues appeared heavy as they remembered the father of three from Sparkill, one of the hundreds of New York City firefighters missing since responding to the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.
“We just want to say, ‘So long, buddy,’ ” said Dermid Kelly, who helped deliver the eulogy for the friend he had known since second grade. “We’ll always love you, and we’ll miss you. Take care, buddy.”
Kelly remembered meeting McHugh in the second grade and watching as the new kid in class headed straight for the fireman’s pole on the school playground. A transplant from the Bronx, McHugh played the tough kid, Kelly recalled, and slid down the pole head first.
“Obviously, my next stop with Dennis was to Mrs. Grace, the school nurse,” Kelly recalled.
Michael McHugh spoke of a brother with a goofy grin and a sharp sense of humor who often made himself the punch line of jokes and someone who was more than a sibling.
“He was an older brother by birth, but he was a great friend by choice,” Michael McHugh said of his brother, who abandoned a career in finance to pursue his calling as a firefighter. Another McHugh brother, Tom, is a fire marshal with the New York Fire Department.
Dennis McHugh always knew the right thing to say and was always available to lend a sympathetic ear in times of distress, his brother Michael said.
