Dix Hills FD Remembers Terry Farrell on 9/11
As they have done every September 11th since 9/11/01, the members of the Dix Hills Fire Department visited the gravesite of their Chief Terry Farrell, also a firefighter with F.D.N.Y. Rescue Company 4, who was killed along with 342 of his brother firefighters at the World Trade Center. At the St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Huntington, Dix Hills firefighters gathered to pray and remember Terry at this eleventh anniversary of 9/11. Company Two Captain Alan Berkowitz and Chief Richard Granahan welcomed the department and guests, which was followed by a prayer from Ex-Chief and Commissioner Phil Tepe. Members were honored to have Terry’s brother Brian Farrell, attend the service with them. After some quiet reflection, the firefighters placed flowers at Terry’s grave and remembered his friendship, sacrifice and dedication as a firefighter.
