Those we have lost
Lt. Glenn C. Perry
FDNY Ladder 25
Perry came from a long line of firefighters. His father, Frank, his
father-in-law Bill Riley, and his brother, Frank Jr., all belonged
to the New York City Fire Department. Perry first served the public
as a police officer in the city before becoming a firefighter. His
true love was his family, whose pictures he pasted on a mirror in
his locker at the firehouse. His teen-age son, Glenn Jr., donned his
father's uniform during a memorial service this month. He is survived
by his wife, Peggy; son Glenn Jr.; two daughters, Meaghan and Caitlin;
his parents and siblings. Perry was 41.
