Remembering those we lost- Daniel John Lee

Remembering those we lost- Daniel John Lee

Five years ago I wrote about a victim of the 9/11 attacks. His name is Daniel John Lee.  He was a carpenter who worked on the crew of pop musicians the Backstreet Boys. He had been using a two-day break in the band’s touring schedule to travel from their date in Boston back to Los Angeles to spend time with his wife.

Danny Lee was determined to be at his wife’s side when she gave birth to their second child. The roadie for the Backstreet Boys had permission to peel away from the band’s tour after Monday’s concert, and after a long night breaking down the stage in Boston, he caught the first flight home to Los Angeles the next morning.

Read his story here.

I was sent the following picture today of Daniel’s name on the memorial wall. That touched me.

(I didn’t ask if I could use the name of the gentleman who sent this to me, so I am just going to say thank you  to him without outing him. Thank you.)
