A Tribute to Lt. Gregg Arthur Atlas

September 11, 2009

May GOD protect the innocent souls in His Kingdom who perished on September 11, 2001. May we, who are left to carry on, never forget their sacrifice.

Firefighter Gregg A. Atlas, 45, enjoyed the simple, rural life best of all. He joined the Fire Department in 1981. He worked his way through the ranks and after being promoted to lieutenant in 1994, he became a member of Engine Co. 10, on Liberty Street, across from the Twin Towers.

Members of Engine 10 reportedly were last heard from when they were in Tower 1 between the 30th and 40th floors.

He was very proud that his three brothers were also firefighters.
He was generous and kind and his family was everything to him.
He lived life to the fullest with a sense of humor.
He was survived by his wife, children, parents, three brothers and a sister.

“For to his angels He’s given a command. To guard you in all of your ways;
Upon their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
And He will raise you up on eagle’s wings, bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His Hand.”
