Lifelong Upper Nyack resident Harry Wanamaker Jr., a FDNY lieutenant who also volunteered for nearly 50 years with the Nyack Fire Department, was remembered today in a ceremony that dedicated a plaque in his honor at the Upper Nyack firehouse.
Wanamaker died July 20, 2010, of cancer related to illness he developed from working at ground zero in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that destroyed the twin towers of the World Trade Center.
Firefighters, relatives and friends gathered at Empire Hook and Ladder Co. No. 1 on North Broadway in Upper Nyack for the ceremony.
