David Fodor 9/11/01

I have the honor of paying tribute to David Fodor. Mr. Fodor, a tax accountant at Fiduciary Trust International and was in the WTC on September 11, 2001. Born and raised in Prince's Bay, Mr. Fodor lived in Tottenville for about 10 years before relocating to upstate Garrison, N.Y. He was an outdoorsman and, as his wife put it, "a nature freak." He cultivated a large vegetable patch in his yard and loved animals, especially Rottweilers. He often adopted rescued animals that no one wanted. Mr. Fodor also enjoyed poetry and penned many thoughtful pieces about love, nature and the human experience. Some poems were published in a Fiduciary Trust publication. A lover of music as well, Mr. Fodor's taste ran the gamut from the hard rock of the group "Godsmack" to the Celtic sounds of the Irish Tenors. "He had a heart the size of the state of New York. If anyone ever needed something, he was right there," Ms. Petrone said. In addition to his wife, Claudia, surviving are his brothers, William and Richard, and his cousin, John Nemeth.
