BRENDA E. CONWAY
World Trade Center
HALF OF A LIFELONG TEAM

Brenda E. Conway was hard to miss. First, because of her unique style — an avid shopper, she preferred bright colors and patterns, and made funny socks her signature — and second, because you usually saw two of her. Mrs. Conway was rarely without her twin, Linda McGee. Though they were fraternal, the sisters still looked and sounded enough alike to draw attention. "They were always together," said their mother, Edith Watford, pastor of the Second Chance Christian Center in the Bronx.

Mrs. Conway was a native of the Bronx, and lived there with her husband, Russell, and children Danielle Alexander, 19, and Mandell Conway, 13. A systems analyst at Marsh & McLennan, on the 97th floor of the World Trade Center, she would have been 40, and she often said that she did not need to have a lot of friends, because she had a twin.

Her sister said, "People ask me, am I dealing with it, and sometimes I say, no, I'm not dealing with it. Everything reminds me of her, because we did everything together." The weekend before Sept. 11, the twins took a "ladies' day out" shopping trip with their daughters. Mrs. Conway bought almost a whole new wardrobe, now untouched. "She left behind so many new things," her mother said.

KEVIN E. CONROY
World Trade Center
SUPPER EVERY NIGHT

By day, he was an accountant at Marsh & McLennan, the insurance brokerage company that occupied seven upper floors at 1 World Trade Center. Evenings, Kevin E. Conroy, 47, the father of four children ages 6 to 12, insisted that his family get together at home in Kensington, Brooklyn, for supper (not dinner) that he often prepared.

There was his infamous eggplant parmigiana. Salad. Pasta. Meat and potatoes. Barbecue. "Nothing too extravagant," said a cousin, Lynn Taylor. "They were the only family I knew that cooked dinner every night. It was just important for him that the family sit together at the house." The schedules of youth leagues and school tested the custom; some nights it was just pizza ordered in. But Mr. Conroy always looked forward to the suppers and, on weekends, playing the gracious host for gatherings of friends and family. "We shared some great times, drank some beer, had lots and lots of laughs," said a letter from two other cousins, Tom and Oonagh, that was read at a memorial service last week. "And Kevin, the barbecues were great." Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on October 7, 2001.

JONATHAN M. "J.C." CONNORS
World Trade Center
A 'TIP TOP' LIFE

His license plate was "Tip Top," which was also one of his nicknames and his reflexive response to "How ya doing?" His other nickname ‹ having at least one is practically a prerequisite on Wall Street ‹ was "J.C.," short for Jonathan Connors, a 55-year-old senior vice president of Cantor Fitzgerald who loved to make money, wear Armani, dance the Lindy, dine at Nobu and, whenever possible, be surrounded by strong, independent, beautiful women.

His wife, Susan Connors, said he greeted her not with a peck but with a full-blown kiss. He liked to hold her hand tightly. When she was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, the two dug in together to fight off the effects. "Whatever he did," she said, "it turned to gold, never silver." Soon after the World Trade Center bombing in 1993, Mr. Connors constructed a diorama of his brush with terrorism. In a red- framed box, he displayed mementos of that day ‹ the soot-covered shirt and tie he wore, the cashmere scarf he used as a mask, his train ticket, the next day's front page. He mounted the box on a wall in his house. It was, his wife said, an act of catharsis, remembrance and defiance all at once.

Mrs. Connors recently took it down. "I couldn't stand to look at it," she said.

JAMES LEE CONNOR
World Trade Center
GOLF PAVED HIS WAY

You always knew the precise moment when James L. Connor had decided that he liked you. He gave you a nickname. His wife, Jamie, was "Little." A brother-in- law was "Hitter." His youngest son, Jack, 4, rated two nicknames, "Mooshie" and "Buddha." His mother, Ruth Ann, was simply "R.A." "If he had a nickname for you," his sister, Cathy Dodge, said, "he loved you and that was his way of expressing it." Looking back, Mrs. Dodge said, it is now clear that golf, one of his great passions, was a "guiding force" in his life ‹ the providential ingredient that nudged him in the direction of both his future wife and a successful career in investment banking. By caddying at the North Hempstead Country Club he came to the attention of a Bear Stearns executive who gave him his start in the business. And by attending the College of William and Mary, where he played on the golf team, he met his wife.

Mr. Connor, 38, of Summit, N.J., was a partner at Sandler O'Neill & Partners on the 104th floor of 2 World Trade Center. But he loved to take his clients for a round of golf. Sometimes he even gave them nicknames.

JOHN E. CONNOLLY
World Trade Center
HIS BRIGHT IRISH SMILE

There was something abut John Connolly, known to his friends as Jack, that made people want to be his friend. "He was a regular guy who loved people, loved life, lived for the minute," said his wife, Dawn. She has a snapshot memory of the first time the two met in a Forest Avenue pub on Staten Island. "I went up there with my cousin, and he just caught my eye with his blue eyes and bright Irish smile," she said. "I would always say we met through my cousin, and he would say we met in a bar." Mr. Connolly, 46, was originally from Staten Island, but about six years ago, he moved the family to Allenwood, N.J. There, he would get up at 3.30 a.m. to drive to Manhattan and park his car beneath the World Trade Center, where he worked for Euro Brokers. His job in those dawn hours was to talk to London and Tokyo, where he made yet more friends. He would get home by midafternoon, in time to coach his children's sports teams and tend to his beloved lawn. Sometimes, the children ‹ Dineen, 11, John, 8, and Patrick, 6 ‹ would tuck him into bed, rather than the other way around.

Every Thanksgiving, he would go back to Staten Island to rejoin high school friends for a touch football game and every Christmas, the Connollys would host a party for about 90 friends, where Jack was known to do Meat Loaf impersonations.
