Larry John Senko was born in Pittsburgh, PA on February 20, 1967. He was raised in Donora, PA where he lived with his parents, Margaret and Ed as well as his older brother, Eddie. Larry was a caring and energetic child who loved his family, friends and sports. He played football for both Mon Valley High School and St. Francis College. Upon graduating with a business degree, Larry moved himself to Philadelphia to start his career in recruiting.
Larry worked on the "Main Line" for several years before moving to Bala Cynwyd with his adoring wife, Debbi. It was at this time in 1997, that Larry began working for Alliance Consulting on the 102nd floor of the World Trade Center’s North Tower. Larry was proud of his job. His hard work earned him the title of Vice President of the New York office. It also afforded him the opportunity to buy a house in Yardley, PA. As his career grew, so did his family. Larry and Debbi welcomed their son, Tyler to the world in February of 2000.
On September 11, 2001, Larry left for work in the usual fashion. Rising at 5:30 a.m. and sharing kisses with his family before he left. Larry spoke with his wife after the tragedy began. In Larry fashion, he was calm and expressed his love. Although he promised to make it home, fate had other plans. Another hero was needed and taken before his time.
Yesterday your family cherished you as a loving husband, father son and brother.
Today your country honors you as a man and as a Hero.
Tomorrow and forever you are in the hearts of those you have touched.
Written by Larry’s wife, Debbi Senko-Goldman
