David DeRubbio loved to make people laugh, whether it was by pulling a prank on someone else or at his own expense. His family and fellow firefighters could always count on his sense of humor to lighten the heaviest load.
On Sept. 11, Mr. DeRubbio kissed his wife goodbye at 7 a.m. as he left home to begin his 12-hour shift with Engine Co. 226, in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn.
"See you later," were the last words he would ever say to her. Mr. DeRubbio's unit would cross the Brooklyn Bridge at about 9 a.m. that morning, with a full view of the horror they were about to face at the Twin Towers.
