God be with all family and friends of 9-11 Heros and Heroines

It was a horrible day and we were sucker punched. It was chilling to see my name (albeit not me) as a victim of these cowards. I wish I knew of something better to say than I am sad for your loss. I will never forget, and certainly, never forgive. I am not religious, but God Bless the Fazio family.

I will never take for granted someone holding the door for another person and I will always remember Ronald Fazio because of it. What you said at the memorial really resonated with me. He would be very proud.
Warm regards, the wife of a NYC Fireman.

I may not know this man, but Today, on the 9th of September 2011, in honor of all of the victims of 9/11, my school handed out card with the names of 3 victims each on them. I had Ronald Carl Fazio as one of my names. We all read the 3 aloud at the same time. Thats when It really set in how many people were taken by the terrorists. I felt at liberty to find out who these people were. I will keep his family in my prayes. Ronald, from what I have read, is a great man.

I had the pleasure to work with Ron in the reinsurance business. He was a very kind and gentle man and I am honored to have known him. He will never be forgotten. 9/1/11

Janet and family,

You won't remember me (but maybe you will!), but my son John had just arrived from Korea and was in the hospital with your son at Englewood Hospital in December 1974. Your son had a trach, and my son had pneumonia. That's where I met you and Ron for the first time. We unexpectedly spent that New Year's Eve and several thereafter at the Elks Club in Closter with you and your husband and the whole Closter group, including Pat and Dennis Ferra. I was heartbroken to hear of the loss of Ron in the WTC attack. I have thought about you many times over the years.

My husband John passed away several weeks after 9/11 from a heart attack. Life continues for all of us, but I wanted you to know I think of you and Ron. This is the first time I have had the courage to actually write to you. The impact of that day was so devastating to me, even though I didn't lose anyone in my family. That day my husband John was on his way into NYC, but I was able to contact him to turn around. I lost him shortly after that evil day. I wanted you to know I have prayed for you, and I hope you are all healing. God Bless you all.

Ronnie was a good person — decent, upright, and honest, but more than anything he was a true friend to me....

As Marist Brother Brendan Lawrence, I had the privilege of teaching Ron at Mt. St. Michael Academy. I am proud of Ron now, as I was for many years before this tragedy. My prayers continue. If I as a friend and teacher am proud, the greatest pride should be yours. You are the family of a truly outstanding man.

My pastor in his church sermon talked about Ronald, and I was moved by his story. He is a hero! The parishioners got a chance to hear what a great service he did to his fellow man. I just wanted to let you know Ronald's story of heroism is still being discussed in a church in Miami, Florida, and he has touched us.

His family should be proud. We will remember him with the utmost affection for a job well done.

P.S. Interestingly, my mom's sister married a Fazio from NY. I wonder if there is a relation.

Well, time has certainly moved on, but your legacy has moved thousands of people forward. I am so proud of you and how you lived your life—and even more proud of how you lost your life. Helping others was your mantra. We are following your lead. Your family and friends keep your inspiration alive. Wish you were here to see your amazing grandchildren. You would love spending time with them. You may have been right about one thing: I am bald now, and it could have been all those 49er hats. I hope you are sneaking lots of Reeses up there. We have our outing in your honor on Monday and then HTD Day in NYC in a few weeks. You'd better visit your site, www.holdthedoor.com, from time to time. We are all so proud of you! 1-4-3.

I worked with Ron in the mid 80's. He was a kind and considerate soul. No matter how busy he was, he always had time to offer words of encouragement. If you were having a really bad day, and you heard his laugh, it was as if the weight of the world was lifted off your shoulders. He had that effect on everyone. What a great guy. A sad loss.

Just yesterday, 8-31-08, I was at a race with my husband in Closter when I saw a sign with Ronald Fazio's name on it remembering 9-11. Since I knew a Ron Fazio growing up in the Bronx, I decided to research if he was the same person I knew. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. It is amazing that we still learn of people who touched our lives a long time ago who were so touched on that day.

Ron, this is your brother-in-law, John. Both families really miss you a lot. Thoughts of you are always with us.  We even talk about the things that you would say, “Sssshhhhh, calm down!”

*** Posted by John Sanchi on 2007-07-27 ***

Ronnie, we will never forget the man you are… we love and miss you. This family will cherish the memories of you that you have given and helped us through when we last saw you in January of 2001.

I had the privilege of teaching Ron at Mt. St. Michael Academy. He was a top Latin student as well as a halfback on the winning football team; but he was more... a solid young man whose character and example led to his election to the Student Council. I hope those accomplishments don't sound trite in light of what he did on Sept. 11. They were God's preparation for a more important mission. Rest, Ron.

I am not related to this man, I just wanted to share my thoughts and prayers with his family and friends, may he always be remembered in your thoughts, and in every mind of the U.S. Americans. I am 12 years old and decided to research the men in women in the tragedy. I found Ronald Fazio, the same last name as mine, so i researched. I am sorry for your loss<3

Post your memorial thoughts:

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!

Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner.
