Firefighter Brian Malloy, Badge #3472, joined the FDNY on October 7, 1985, and began his career at “Bowery U” on Great Jones Street in Lower Manhattan, Engine 33/Ladder 9. He was there until 1993, when he transferred to Cougar Country on Castleton Avenue on Staten Island, Engine 157/Ladder 80. He served just over 22 years on the job, retiring on October 22, 2007.
Brian helped the rescue and recovery efforts for nearly four months at Ground Zero after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. He was always known as someone who put others before himself. If someone needed help, he would be there in an instant. He sacrificed himself and time with his family to help others in that time of need and made the ultimate sacrifice on March 28, 2011, due to health-related issues brought on by the conditions at Ground Zero.
He is survived by his wife, Bonnie; his two sons, Christopher and Matthew; his new grandson, Jack Brian; his sisters, MaryEllen, Maureen, Eileen, and Dierdre; his brother, James; and his countless nieces and nephews.
