The Borough of Roselle Park will conduct its annual September 11th Remembrance Service next Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 2 p.m. at the Kelly-Kaulfers Memorial Park.
The ceremony will serve to honor and remember the 2,977 victims on the 15th anniversary of the September 11th attacks that started at 8:46 a.m. when American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

He was a Port Authority Police Sergeant and was one of 37 Port Authority police officers, 343 FDNY firefighters, 23 NYPD police officers, and eight (8) emergency medical technicians & paramedics who died that Tuesday morning responding to the call for help.
