Statement from Legislator Mulé on the Passing of 9/11 Hero Bob Beckwith

(BALDWIN, N.Y.) Bob Beckwith, a retired firefighter from Baldwin who assisted with recovery efforts in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks and was famously photographed atop a firetruck while former President George W. Bush addressed first responders at Ground Zero, died on Feb. 4 at the age of 91.

Following his passing, Nassau County Legislator Debra Mulé (D – Freeport) issued the following statement:

“In one of America’s darkest hours, Bob Beckwith became the symbol of strength and a beacon of hope that New York, our nation, and the entire world so desperately needed,” Nassau County Legislator Debra Mulé (D – Freeport) said. “He embodied the courage that so many demonstrated when they rushed toward danger in the aftermath of 9/11 in the hopes of saving others, and his stoic commitment to selfless service is an inspiration to all of us. I pray that all he accomplished in his 91 years will bring comfort to his family as they mourn his passing.”
