Only the good die young. I had a memorable encounter with Stu that I can recall with fondness.
My twin brother NYPD ESU John D'Allara was killed on 9/11 by the collapse of the North Tower. Many Police Officers like Stu dug on that pile for to give us remains to bury. The Red Cross set upa tent to serve meals to weary first responders.
One day during breakfast in the tent Stu was sitting next to me. I had just been introduced to him . When he finished breakfast he leaned back saying that was good. Leaning back he put his hand on his gun belt and accidently deployed his Mace into the side of my face !! The look on Stu's face was priceless ! Like deer caught in the head lights!Iwas choking as he tried so hard to render aid to me while the rest of the cops at the table laughed and asked if I enjoyed the pepper with my eggs !
I was so sorry to hear he died of exposure to 9/11 toxins.
Over the years I have stayed in touch with his brother Phil.I also related this sweet story to his wife and daughters.
I owe Stu's family a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.
When I think of the good character of NYC Police Officers I think of Phil a real NYC mench !

Lord Jesus, as we watch our nation’s brave law enforcement officers succumb to the wicked and evil in this world, it becomes difficult for us to pick up and move forward. Our communities are on the brink of exploding with tension. In light of the law enforcement officers who are no longer with us, I pray for endurance for our communities and law enforcement agencies. Carry us through this time of strife, that through our struggles, our bonds may grow even more unbreakable. In Your mighty and holy name, I pray. Amen.

“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” [Isaiah 6:8 ESV]

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” [Psalm 23:4 ESV]

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 3rd anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for the solace of everyone who misses and loves Stuart. We will never forget the sacrifice made by each of the 9/11 heroes.

Rest In Peace

I had the good fortune of working with Stu when we worked together in the Three-Two. As I sit and write this reflection I see his big smile and think of what a wonderful guy he was. He was a big bear in a cops uniform. I will see to it that Stu and his family will always be in my families prayers. I'm honored to have worked with you. God Bless.

As part of Law Enforcement United, let me assure family and friends, that his service will never be forgotten. I will carry his memorial flag with honor. I will think of you ever mile of the upcoming 500 mile trip!

So many fine people sought to comfort the D'Allara family after we suffered through our own shock and disbelief. The loss of my twin brother NYPD ESU John D'Allara on September 11, 2001 is with me always.
Some people seem to standout and Stu Fishkin is one of them. So many years ago at breakfast in the Red Cross tent Stu accidentally leaned the wrong way on his belt and engaged his pepper spray into me and my scrambled eggs! Stu was beside himself having maced a LOOD family member. After I finished choking we all had a big laugh. He made my day and from then on I saw in Stu the as truly one of New York's Finest . As John used to say "the guy was a sweetheart. I know him to be a mench and a true New Yorker.
I had hoped to run into him again and was very saddened to see his name go up on the Memorial Wall at One PP last year.
I am hoping to see his family in person at some point to tell them how sorry I am.
