We just bought Joseph's house in Richmondtown SI. Their is a workbench in the basement where his children wrote in crayon "we love you daddy" "Chris's workbench" "Joey's workbench" " The Mascali's" and "Daddy's workbench" The neighbors told us that Joey built the dollhouse/shed in the backyard for his daughter to play with. They also told us that he was a great guy and that he had died a hero on 9/11. We feel honored to live in his former house and feel we would have liked him although we never met. Yesterday on the fifth anniversary of 9/11 I said a prayer for him and his family. I also saw his picture in the paper and the lovely poem his wife wrote. For now we will leave the crayon markings in tribute to a real man who should have never died with all those other untimely deaths

Today, September 11, 2006 I am thinking of Jospeh Mascali and his family. I met Joseph (Joey) only once. But I remember the loving way he held his daughter in his arms, his warm smile and the sound of his laughter.

I never met Joseph Mascali, but I wore his name and picture around my neck for the Patriot Group Walk held by my school yesterday, October 22. The heads of the Patriot Group told each walker to bring our firefighter home and talk to them whenever we needed to. It was an honor to have walked in remembrance of all the 9-11 firefighters and to have them all serve our city.

My two brothers and I played baseball against Joe's brother Arnie for many years.  We teamed up in high school at Poly Prep.  Arnie played on the varsity as a sophomore, when I was a senior (1982).  That year, my brother Dennis and I moonlighted as banquet waiters at the Royale Catering Hall in Brooklyn (McDonald & Ditmas).  We met Joe there, as he was also looking to pick up a few extra bucks.  When Joe found out that we were Arnie's teammates he treated us like gold.  This was backbreaking work; and Joe always used to finish his tables and then come over to help us finish ours.  Always.  He was about 8 years older than me but he made quite an impression.  He was a man of kindness, integrity and class.  My sincerest condolences to the Mascali family for your loss.  Hang in there Arnie.  I know how hard it is.  To Joe's children, I hope you can take some solace in the knowledge that your father was the type of man we all aspire to be.  God bless you.

I knew Joey from my neighborhood in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. He worked in my parents Italian deli when he was a teenager. Ever since I found out about Joe's death, I have thought about him and the family he left behind. My thoughts and prayers go out to his Mother and Father who were wonderful people. To Johnny, his brother, whom Joey was very close to, His other siblings and to his wife and three children. I am so sorry for the tragedy which you have all suffered.

I never knew Joseph. I wear his name on my bracelet in honor of his sacrifice and bravery. I just visited Ground Zero for the first time since 9/11. I have a picture of his name on the list of heroes. Being from Texas, we never liked "Yankees", well we are all New Yorkers now. One firefighter after 9/11 said that God needed firefighters in heaven and we sent him our best. I can not put in any better than that.

God Bless the Mascali family. I will never forget Joseph.

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!
