9/11 Tribute Post: Louis Steven Inghilterra

This post is a part of the 2,996 Project, organized by Dale Roe. Click here to read memorial posts dedicated to other victims. *This post will stay at the top of the page for the entire day...scroll down for new entries.*

On the morning of September 11, 2001, Louis Steven Inghilterra arrived at his office on the 95th floor of Tower 2 of the World Trade Center. He was the senior vice president and treasurer of the Fiduciary Trust Company, and made the 20-mile commute from New Castle, NY to lower Manhattan daily. He was not to know that within hours he and nearly 3,000 others would lose their lives in an attack that would change the course of history.

Inghilterra left behind his wife Diane, his son (now 7) Louis Sam, as well as his mother, sister and niece.

According to this online memorial by his wife Diane, Louis was born in Brooklyn and raised in Queens. At the age of 12, he lost his father to cancer. Despite this early tragedy Louis had a zest for life, showing a love for books and music. In fact, he and some friends organized a band (in which Louis played guitar), and performed in nightclubs and at weddings during their college years.

As an adult, Louis's cherished pastimes became a special connection with his son, Louis Sam, who never tired of listening to music and reading with his father.

Co-workers say Louis was also a man dedicated to excellence at his chosen profession. He was a teacher who shared his knowledge willingly. He was a friend, interested not only in the workplace successes of those who worked for him, but in their personal lives as well.

Louis Steven Inghilterra: son, brother, husband, father, co-worker, friend, died senselessly five years ago today. See his face...remember his name. Honor his memory and those of the others who died that day. We surely owe them that much.

Thank you for the memorial. I hope that you found it as fullfilling as I did in learning about Matthew Vianna.
