Glenn E. Wilkinson was a lieutenant with the New York City Fire Department. He had been studying for the Captain’s test and had stated many times that he wanted to retire as a chief.
Glenn was loved and respected by all who knew him. He was very kind and fair. He was a solid athlete having played football and lacrosse for Hofstra. Glenn was a favorite uncle‚ a treasured friend‚ a wonderful brother and son‚ a loving and supportive husband and‚ above all‚ a phenomenal daddy to our three children. He was a hero to his family long before September 11th. I came across an anniversary card I had given Glenn the December before and it stated very simply‚ ‘You will always be my hero.’
