    A former New York City detective who helped sift remains at the toxic World Trade Center site after the Sept. 11 terrorist attack is being remembered by friends and the department as a generous, loving hero.

    Kevin Czartoryski, who died Sunday, most recently worked in the NYPD's public information office, and was the department's liaison to the city's lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender community.

    The 46-year-old was buried Thursday.

    Quinn on 9/11 Health Bill Stall: "How Can You Expected Anyone to Do It Again?"

    [NY] Quinn on 9/11 Health Bill Stall: "How Can You Expected Anyone to Do It Again?"
    City Council speaker Christine Quinn condemns Congress for its failure to pass a bill that would've given up to $7.4 billion in health and medical support to those sickened by World Trade Center dust as she attends the funeral of one of the NYPD heroes it killed.

    Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly has called the detective a consummate professional.

    Czartoryski retired in 2009 and suffered from pulmonary fibrosis, a condition in which the lung tissue becomes thickened, stiff, and scarred. The NYPD medical board determined his condition was caused by his time at Ground Zero.

    He is survived by his sisters, brothers and nieces and nephews.
