Roland Pacheco: October 12, 1976 - September 11, 2001

This is a tribute to Roland Pacheco.

At the age of 25, the Brooklyn native worked as a data administrator for Alliance Consulting. His offices were on the 102nd floor of 1 World Trade Center.

His son, Ryan, was two and a half years old at the time of Roland's death.

Roland and his fiancee, Annie Guerrero, were looking forward to their wedding and a long and happy marriage.

His friends remember him as "sweet, outgoing, and happy." Annie tells us that Roland was a "great dad, my best friend, my soulmate."

2,996 people died on September 11, 2001.

Roland Pacheco was one of them. It is an honor to pay tribute to him.

Please remember him, his family, and his friends in your prayers.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let Your Perpetual Light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace. Amen.

(Many thanks to Dale Roe for this opportunity.)
