Funeral for 9-11 firefighter four years later
NEW YORK -- A 30-year-old firefighter who rushed to the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, was memorialized Saturday at a Manhattan church in one of the last funerals for the 343 firefighters killed that day.
Hundreds of firefighters stood in full dress uniform under an unforgiving June sun as a fire truck carrying Keithroy M. Maynard's remains paraded to the Church of the Master with a pipe and drum corps playing "Amazing Grace."
Maynard's family held a memorial service two months after the attacks, but years passed before his family felt that enough of his remains had been identified to hold a formal funeral, officials said.
The ceremony was the first funeral since 2003 for a firefighter killed at the World Trade Center.
Maynard's late father, Reynold White, was a New York City fire captain. His twin brother, Kevin Maynard, became a firefighter after his brother's death. Another brother is a New York police officer.
He is also survived by his mother, another brother, two sisters and a 10-year-old son, Keithroy Maynard II.
Maynard, a naturalized U.S. citizen, will be buried in Montserrat, a Caribbean island where he lived until he was 15.
