I have dedicated my Tunnel to Towers run this year to the memory of Gene M. Dannenfelser of Haddon Heights, New Jersey. I hope you will graciously donate to my cause the Steven Siller Tunnel to Towers.
Gene Dannenfelser succumbed to 9/11 related cancer in November 2017. In the days following 9/11 he was assigned to the resuce and recovery efforts at Ground Zero. He was a retired Deputy Fire Marshal with the Camden County Fire Marshals Office (NJ), Past Chief and Life Member of the Haddon Heights Volunteer Fire Department (NJ) and sitting President of the Camden County Hero Scholarship Fund. Gene was a leader, a mentor, and a teacher to many of us in our first few years of service as Fire Service Explorer Scouts. He was able to put a smile on your face regardless of good or bad circumstances. Gene is sorely missed but his legacy of selflessness and service will remain with all of us who had the pleasure of knowing him.
