(New York-WABC, June 9, 2005) -- The remains of a firefighter killed on September 11th have been identified by the Medical Examiner's Office, and a funeral will be held on Saturday.
Fire officials tell Eyewitness News, Firefighter Keithroy Maynard was one of seven members of Engine Company 33 in Manhattan to be killed on September 11th. His remains were recently positively identified by the Medical Examiners Office through DNA testing.
A funeral service will be held for Maynard on Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Church of the Master, 86 Morningside Avenue.
The son of an FDNY captain who served 33 years, Maynard was born on the Caribbean island of Montserrat and moved to the U.S. in 1986.
After attending Wingate High School in Queens and the Borough of Manhattan Community College, he became a union organizer for the International Association of Machinists in 1997.
While his brother joined the Police Department, Maynard joined the FDNY in August 1999.
Lt. Paul Washington, president of the Vulcan Society, an association of black FDNY members, said Maynard was an outstanding firefighter who wanted his job.
Lt. Paul Washington, President of the Vulcan Society: "He was two years on the job and he told me he was going to boot me out as president. He said I could still call him Keith if no one else was around."
