Today We Remember PO Walter "Wally" Weaver

Today we remember thirty-year-old NYPD Police Officer Walter “Wally” Weaver, Emergency Services Unit, Truck 3. Walter answered his final call for help on September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center. He was last seen rushing to the scene of the disaster with three other members of his truck. He had carried victims to the triage center, and went back in to work a hydraulic tool to open an elevator full of people trapped on the 6th floor. He never made it out.

PO Weaver was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting, fishing and ice-skating. Beloved son of Scotty and Joan Wearver, loving brother of Brian and Michael, and cherished fiancée of Shannon Faulkner. He left behind his dreams, and his plans for the future with his fiancée Shannon.

He left this life doing what he loved, along with so many others, in the most heroic and successful rescue effort ever seen.

We Will Never Forget!
