Remembering Stanley Smagala Jr.

A white rose on the 9/11 Memorial honors Stanley Smagala Jr. birthday.

Stanley Smagala Jr. lived in Holbrook, NY with his wife, Dena. They were expecting their first child. The youngest of seven, Stanley spoke of wanting a big family. He enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews or playing ping-pong, golf, and softball when not on duty at FDNY Engine Company 226.

On September 11, Firefighter Smagala responded to the towers. Today we honor his 52nd birthday by placing a white rose at his name on the 9/11 Memorial.
