The 34-year-old Haub from Ladder Co. 4 in midtown Manhattan was on the job for just two years when he was killed in the Sept. 11, 2001 attack.

Haub's remains were initially found in lobby debris of the south tower six months later. His family held a March 2002 wake that was attended by then Mayor Michael Bloomberg and FDNY Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta.
