Christopher Pickford, 32, stood 6’5.” His family called him “a gentle giant.”
 He played guitar in his band “Ten Degree Lean,” wrote music, poetry and prose, and worked as a paralegal for the Queens’ DA office, but really all he ever wanted to be was a firefighter. He graduated in the last class of 2000. On 9/11, he was 18 months in, based in Brooklyn. He is the third of four from Engine 201 who did not come home. They apparently entered the South Tower to help ten minutes before it came down.
