Lt. Peter Martin, 43, was a 22-year FDNY veteran with “numerous medals for bravery” and a degree in criminal justice. He was one of the experts from the FDNY who went to Oklahoma City to aid with search and rescue after their bombing in 1995, the same year he was made lieutenant.
Martin collected antique rifles. Once a month he would take them out for shooting practice as a member of the Single Action Shooting Society where he was nicknamed “Sidewinder Pete.” He also loved to watch Nascar.
Most of all, he was devoted to his 3 sons, 13, 8 and 6.
