This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Raymond Murphy, FDNY, Ladder 16, who was killed on September 11, 2001.
Ray was the fourth of five sons born to Edward J. and Eileen Murphy. Older Brothers William, Robert and Edward preceded him, and he was an older brother to Kenneth. When he was six, Ray’s family moved from the Yorkville section of Manhattan , to the Castle Hill section of the Bronx . Ray spent the next 13 years growing up in the Castle Hill Housing Projects, a neighborhood comprised of every ethnic and racial background imaginable. By all accounts, Ray had a wonderful childhood. He seemed to have been born with the effervescent personality we would all come to know later in his life. Indeed, friendships made by Ray as a child lasted throughout his lifetime. Dennis, Smitty, Bombo, and the rest of the Castle Hill crew remained close even as they raised their own families. Ray also met his first and only true love, Linda, during the Castle Hill years.
