    Cantor Fitzgerald | Fixed-Income Accountant

    He had his business card that gave his address as Tower 1, 101st Floor, World Trade Center," Gwyn Adams said of her son, Shannon. "He was so proud of that, coming from a town where his high school class had 34 kids. It doesn't even have a red light. It has a couple of stop signs."

    It was his longstanding dream to leave Star Lake, N.Y., population 860, for something a little bigger.

    "He was going 100 miles an hour all the time, it seems like," said his father, Lew Adams. "The city seemed to satisfy that a lot better than the northern Adirondacks."

    Shannon Adams, 25, a fixed-income accountant at Cantor Fitzgerald, set up the perfect bachelor pad in Astoria with two friends in the finance world.

    "They had their huge big TV screen with all their sports, their full music wall," his mother said. "They had a huge fish tank with man-eating fish or whatever they're called." And they had a favorite bar where his friends gathered for an Irish wake. And when they went up north for his memorial service, they filled up all the motels in a 15-mile radius.

    To the Adams family, On the 10th anniversary of 9-11 my husband and I attended a ceremony at a nearby ski area where flags for each of the 9-11 victims were flown. We came home with Shannons flag and proudly display his flag in his honor in our front yard. (See attached photos) We are sorry for your loss and will continue to remember all those who died in that tragedy on 9-11-2001. Published by The Harrisons
