Those we have lost
Lt. Peter Freund
FDNY Engine 55
Freund contemplated leaving a life of firefighting in New York City
to become a school teacher. In fact, the firefighter with an engine
company in Little Italy was to start substitute teaching at Minisink
Valley High School the same month he made the ultimate sacrafice.
Freund loved children, especially his three children Peter,
9; Julie, 11, and Dori, 12. He coached Little League in Minisink Valley
and recently took up coaching youth football. Freund, who is survived
by his wife Robin and children, was 45.
