Firefighter Robert Hamilton
FDNY Squad 41

Robert Hamilton spent his childhood hanging out at the local firehouse in Queens. That's where his mom knew where to find him when he was missing. He wanted to be just like them, just like his dad. As an adult, Hamilton battled blazes in the city, sold real estate, coached Little League, volunteered for Boy Scouts, loved his wife, Liz, and cherished his children, Christina, 7, and Bobby, 12. He was 43.
