Those we have lost
Daniel M. Coffey
Marsh & McLennan
M. Coffey bought a gas mask in 1993 after the bombing at the World
Trade Center. He made sure to stock his office at Marsh & McLennan
with plenty of flashlights so if the unbelievable happened again,
he and his staff could get out of the building without feeling blind.
He didn't make it Sept. 11. He was the kind of guy who could never
leave any friends or family stranded. His devotion to family and to
career often led him into the city on Saturdays to make sure he finished
a job. And he often checked in on his son Jason, 25, who also worked
for Marsh & McLennan just four floors above his office.
He is survived by his wife, Francis, and two sons. He was 54.
