Lt. Christopher Sullivan, 39, was married to his high school sweetheart. He was a happy dad to his two sons, 6 and 4. No matter how long his shift, he was never too tired to skip playing with them when he came home.
Sullivan was a big man: 6’4”, 235 pounds, with a build that revealed his love of weightlifting. His route to the FDNY went through the Nassau County Sheriff’s Department and the NYPD. He entered the department in 1986 and was assigned to Ladder 111 after his promotion to Lieutenant. Sullivan responded with Engine 214 to the WTC. They were last seen in Tower One, racing up the stairs.
