Benjamin Suarez‚ 34‚ firefighter‚ FDNY‚ Ladder 21. Open‚ generous‚ brave‚ and caring‚ Suarez was motivated in life by his two great loves – firefighting and his wife‚ Sally. His wife’s name was tattooed on one arm‚ the FDNY emblem on the other. Always romantic‚ it was Suarez who sometimes had to remind his wife of the couple’s anniversary. Suarez was also devoted to his children. He often brought groups of fellow firefighters to attend their school events.
