Commack corner renamed for ‘selfless’ 9/11 first responderPosted: Updated:
The corner of Calvert Avenue and Sheldon Place in Commack now bears the name of FDNY Lieutenant Walter Malone – a 9/11 first responder.
Shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, Malone came out of retirement at the age of 67 and worked on the pile at ground zero every day for two months.
He died nearly 2 years ago of a 9/11-related illness.
His family says the street sign will serve as a reminder of the sacrifices made by Malone and other first responders.
“All he really wanted was to help people. He was selfless,” says grandson Sean Malone.
Malone's name will also be added to the 9/11 Memorial in Nesconset.
