Damien was a wonderful person who came from a terrific family. The world is a sadder place without him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Damien, I was one of the thousands of your friends who attended your wake on Sunday. The many pictures of you with your wife and child that your family had placed around the funeral home will haunt me for many years to come. These pictures reminded us all what a fantastic father you were and how in love you were with your wife. Three pictures in particular were very moving... the one where you have little Damien on your shoulders and a big grin on your face while you both watch the St. Patrick's Day, the one where you and Damien Jr. are cuddled up together in asleep in bed and the one where you, your wife and child throw leaves at each other left me in tears. Neither myself nor my family will every forget you and we will remember you and your the Meehan family in our prayers everynight.

Everything Is Family

This summer, Damian Meehan celebrated a milestone best appreciated by other rookie golfers struggling for some semblance of par: he finally broke 100. And his foursome included three of his six brothers, so the feat did not pass unverified. Several brotherly beers were shared that day, recalled his brother Michael. The Meehan boys had played Gaelic football since childhood, but recently five of them took up golf and made a habit of getting away for a weekly game, followed by a nice dinner and animated reminiscences.

Mr. Meehan, 32, was the baby of the brothers. As they grew up in the Inwood neighborhood of Manhattan, they bossed him unmercifully, but he took it in stride. Last year the brothers pitched in and completely renovated the house he shared in Glen Rock, N.J., with his wife, Joanne, and their 18-month-old son. Another baby is on the way.

In a family of police officers and firefighters, he was the quiet and serious brother, the only one of his nine siblings to wind up on Wall Street. He was an up-and-coming trader at Carr Futures, and he loved his job all the more, said his brother Michael, because so many of his bosses and co-workers were from the old neighborhood. "Everything with us," he said, "is family."
