Edward Datri

 

LT. EDWARD ALEXANDER D'ATRI, 38, of New York, had the New York Fire Department in his blood. “The firefighters we knew would always say, ‘If I ever went into a burning building, I'd want Eddie behind me,’”' said his wife Linda. D'Atri, a firefighter since 1984, was off duty the morning of Sept. 11, but he went to the scene anyway. When he wasn't fighting fires, D'Atri liked to exercise, take karate classes and read books on philosophy. He had two sons, who loved to go to the firehouse with their father and sit in the fire truck.
