I never met Stephen, but have read many remembrances of him, and I am sure he was a one of a kind, giving and loving guy. I believe he is the only person from New Milford (my home town) to have died due to the attacks on that day. His passing makes no sense a truly wonderful person who died way too young. I briefly met his sister Michele and my heart goes out to her and the rest of Stephen's family and friends. He will forever remain in my heart and my thoughts. God bless you Stephen.

Biography:

Michelle Dorf said she used to fight "a lot" with her brother Stephen S. Dorf. But as the two youngest among six siblings from Bensonhurst in Brooklyn, they were also very close.

He helped her get a job at Euro Brokers/Maxcor Financial Group, where he worked as a communications technician on the 84th floor of 2 World Trade Center. When she could not afford to buy a home by herself, she said, he went in as her partner, and the two got a five-bedroom house in New Milford, N.J.

Mr. Dorf, 39 and single, was also the father figure to his younger sister's 15-year- old son after her divorce. Uncle and nephew were addicted to movies - "Everything. The hottest movie out they'd see," Ms. Dorf, 37, said - and loved nothing more than watching television together, day and night.

"He used to baby-sit a lot," she said. "He used to do everything around the house. I don't know what I'm doing now. I'm lost without him."
