Lieutenant Halloran's Act of Heroism

My Hero

Vincent Gerard Halloran was lost in the line of duty while serving as a Lieutenant for the New York City Fire Department at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. He was 43. Beloved husband of Marie and a devoted and loving father to his sons Jake 15, Conor 13, Aidan 12, Kieran 9, and Declan 2. Another child is due in May. As a Lieutenant, he was deployed to lead his men in the evacuation of the North Tower. As a true hero, he placed his men's lives, and those of countless others, before his own. He began his career as a firefighter at Engine 262 in Astoria, Queens and later served at Engine 43 in the Bronx prior to being assigned to Ladder 8 in NYC, as a Lieutenant. He celebrated his twentieth year with the FDNY on September 5, 2001. Vincent will be remembered by those who knew him and loved him as a man who showed his care and concern for all he met, who graced others with his overwhelming generosity, who proudly displayed his love for children and as a man who always shared his brilliant smile and love of life. If we follow his example, we too can make a difference. Gone but not forgotten.
