Carl E. Molinaro

Carl was a devoted husband‚ a loving father‚ a loved son and brother. Many who were lucky enough to have him as a friend experienced his infectious spirit and unique sense of humor. Carl’s display of courage and heroism on many occasions made him a true hero. Carl gave of himself not only on 9/11‚ but every day of his life because it was his nature to give.
