William Valcarcel was 54 when he died in the 9-11 attack on the Twin Towers in 2001. He had lived here on this street in Queens that was renamed later in his honor.....

I read this small tribute to him on a memorial webpage........

' 'Cousin Willie' was one of those guys I didn't get to spend much time with since he was much older, but I remember one time we went to his place for some family shindig.

He and his wife were so nice. I was like 9 or 10 at the time, but they treated me like a grown-up, asking me what I wanted to eat, drink, or do while we were there. They took the time to speak with me, and that made me feel special. They were the kind of people who wanted to make you feel welcome. It was genuine and sincere, and that's how I remember him.

I only regret finding out so much more about him after he was gone.
