Wilton Remembers Residents Lost on 9/11

WILTON, Conn. – Edward Fergus Jr., Peter Fry, John Iskyan and Edward York left their Wilton homes for the very last time on a late summer morning 10 years ago. The four men died that September morning just as each one was settling into his office at the World Trade Center.

Once again on Sunday, Wilton will remember these men along with the thousands of others killed that day in the terrorist attacks with a memorial service at the town's Fire Headquarters .

"We're going to do what we've done in the past," said Deputy Fire Chief Mark Amatrudo. "The fire, the police and the EMS will all be involved in the memorial service."

The ceremony, which begins at 10 a.m., starts with the Wilton Police Honor Guard marching in with a flag detail, said Amatrudo. That will be followed by speeches from First Selectman William Brennan , Fire Chief Paul Milositz and Police Chief Michael Lombardo .

"There is usually a member of the clergy there and a video presentation," said Amatrudo. "Then there is a reception afterward."

In addition this year, the Connecticut United Ride , a motorcycle brigade that travels through about 10 towns, will pass through Wilton around noon on Sunday, said Amatrudo.

"We'll have our area ladder trucks with a large American flag draped between them up on Westport Road when the motorcycles come through," said Amatrudo.

Wilton's Sept. 11 10-Year Anniversary Memorial Service begins at 10 a.m. at the Fire Headquarters located at 236 Danbury Road.
