Lt. Thomas O’Hagan

244 O'Hagan fb

Lt. Thomas O’Hagan, 43, came from a family filled with police officers but he always wanted to be a firefighter, even after he attacked his first fire at age seven and burned his pants and himself as he attempted to stamp it out. This 20-year veteran of the fire department had been planning to retire next year. He had new 18-month-old twins and he loved being a father.

O’Hagan had been assigned to Ladder 6 only a couple weeks before 9/11.  He was a terrific firehouse chef.

(Lt. Thomas O’Hagan was originally listed as a member of Battalion 4. When I have access to the paintings again – which are in storage – I will change it to Engine 6.)
