9/11 firefighter laid to rest nearly 15 years after World Trade Center attacks

A funeral was held for Safety Battalion Chief Lawrence Stack, FDNY, nearly 15 years after he was killed while responding to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, reports Avianne Tan of ABC News.

Chief Stack’s remains were never identified. His family hoped that they might be. When they recently discovered that the New York Blood Center still had blood that Chief Stack had donated years before, they used the blood for his funeral.

A Navy veteran of Vietnam, Chief Stack, 58, was with the FDNY for 33 years. Both his sons followed in his footsteps, joining the FDNY.
