Remembering the 2,996: Patrick O'Keefe

This year, we remember a hero.

Patrick O'Keefe was one the firefighters found in the stairwell of Tower One. As a member of the NYFD, he was honorable to begin with; Mr. O'Keefe was there to make sure the public got out on that bad morning in New York City.
Since his death, a foundation and a charity regatta has been created in his name. Here is his biography as written by The O'Keefe Foundation:

And so he is today,"Still Riding"

G-dspeed Patrick O'Keefe! It was truly an honor that you were among us.
