127 Gray fb

James Gray, 34, drove a NYC bus for six years while waiting to be called up. “He wanted the action,” said his wife. Following his father into the department, he became a firefighter in 1996. He was studying for his Lieutenant’s test that September and working overtime on the morning of 9/11. Gray left behind two daughters, 8 and 6, whom he called at 7:30 that morning to wish them a good day at school. The men of Ladder Co. 20 were last reported seen around the 35th floor of Tower One.

    I will be climbing 110 stories on Sept 20th 2015 at a 9/11 memorial in honor of James and the ultimate sacrifice he gave that fateful morning.
