'He Had Come of Age'
Marc A. Murolo never used a napkin, even when he was eating at his favorite restaurant, Morton's steakhouse. His sister, Cathy Lynn Roberti, said, "I can go through three napkins in one sitting. He never used one, even when he ate a rack of ribs, so I would usually steal his."
Bright and quiet with a ready smile, Mr. Murolo, 28, worked as a bond trader at Cantor Fitzgerald on the 105th floor of 1 World Trade Center. He loved his job. He also loved the city. He liked to go out to restaurants with friends. And to Mets games. Mr. Murolo, who grew up in Englewood Cliffs, N.J., moved to the city shortly after graduating from Fairfield University in Connecticut. "He was really proud of his apartment," his sister said. "In July, for my dad's 70th birthday, we went to the Water Club for lunch. Afterward, he entertained the family at his apartment. He had come of age."
