Welcome to the official Richard Cudina 9/11 Memorial Website.
Richard Cudina was working in his Cantor Fitzgerald office on the 105th floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 when the buildings were destroyed. The Richard Cudina Memorial Committee has been established to create a monument as part of Lebanon Township Park in his memory. A scholarship fund to benefit deserving local students is also planned for the future.
Richie, outgoing, friendly and caring, touched many lives. His absence leaves a hole in the hearts of his family and friends, and in the hearts of his neighbors and business associates. A graduate of Kean University, he worked on Wall Street for several years as a broker in Eurodollars at Lasser Marshall, Inc. and brokered foreign exchange and emerging markets for Chapdelaine Corp. He also managed the emerging fixed income desk for Garban Corp. before moving on to develop an emerging market desk at Cantor-Fitzgerald.
Throughout his life, Richie faced many great challenges, and, without fail, he accepted and overcame them all, said his wife Georgia. He was a friendly, witty and gracious person with an infectiously happy philosophy toward life, and he was a loyal and steadfast friend to anyone who took the time to know him.
