Robert C. King, Jr.

This site is dedicated to the memory of Robert C. King, Jr. 

Robert C. King, Jr. was a firefighter, craftsman and family man. He was born March 24, 1965, the youngest of four children and the only son of Audrey and Robert King, Sr. Family and friends called him "Bobby."

 “He always came home happy,” said his wife, Theresa,  referring to Bobby's nine years of service as a firefighter for Engine Co. 33 on Great Jones Street in lower Manhattan. He was often responsible for driving the fire truck to calls. He lived in Bellerose Terrace, Long Island with Theresa and their three children, Thomas, Elizabeth, and Stephen. 

As a craftsman, woodworking was Bobby Jr.'s specialty. He was skilled in making everything from furniture, such as a 20-foot-long trestle table for the firehouse, to a small wooden truck for his nephew. 

Family, co-workers and friends often mentioned his easy smile and generous heart. His mother Audrey said “His smile was just worth a million dollars.”  Long Island newspaper, Newsday, put it simply in its profile of King, Jr., “He had a good life.”

What Remains

Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 in New York City, Washington DC, and Shanksville, PA, Americans have created expressions of their loss through text, music, theater, and sculpture.

What Remains” is a web-based collection of photographic images that document 9-11 physical memorials and tributes that incorporate actual physical remnants of the attacks. The images were taken by photographer Sheena Chi, and are included in a photo collection called “Sheena 2.0™: 9/11-index,” hosted on the Yahoo image management website Flickr

This site has been archived and curated by Robert F. Musco and Lauretta A. Lyons in partial completion of the requirements for ILS 652, a course in the MLS Program at Southern Connecticut State University.

The photographer, Sheena Chi, has granted limited rights to Voices of September 11th, an advocacy organization supporting those affected by the events of 9/11, to reproduce her work.
