Soccer Was His Life
He did not want to miss a minute of the soccer goalie clinic he was running later that night, so Rudolph Mastrocinque arrived at his office in the World Trade Center early on the morning of Sept. 11.

As his wife, Meryl, put it, "soccer was his life."

It started out as something for the children, Peter, 11, and Amy, 16. But one day a group of parents got together to play and someone noticed how quick Mr. Mastrocinque's feet were. He went on to become one of the most enthusiastic members of the Kings Park Soccer Club on Long Island, and coached several children's teams.

When he was not playing soccer, "he'd be telling me joke after joke after joke," Mrs. Mastrocinque said. "Rudy was very funny."

Mr. Mastrocinque was 43 and a vice president for property claims at Marsh & McLennan. Mrs. Mastrocinque talked him into buying a boat "to find some relaxation on the water" after his long hours at the office. He did, and fishing on Long Island Sound became one of his favorite things to do — second only, perhaps, to soccer.

Never Forgotten..Rudy will always be remembered with a smile at the memories of laughter filled parties at our grandpatents homes. Love, Patti

Can it really be 15 years, cousin? My thoughts today are filled with many good and sad memories. Your Mom is now with you and that reunion in heaven must be wondrous!

Dad, Sharon & Richard are no doubt feeling yours & your Mom's presence today, but missing you both so terribly. And of course, Meryl, Amy & Peter.

Forgive me if I shed a tear or two today.
Love, Ed

Just had the 40th reunion for the Northport High class of '76. Rudy's name and memory came up many times during the evening. He's missed by a lot of old friends. Thoughts and prayers for his family and especially his two kids.

Never forgotten. May you Rest in Peace.

R.I.P. Mr. Mastrocinque.

I think of Rudy every year during this horrible annivetsary. I remember him surviving the tumor and talking to him during one of our school functions. He was a one of a kind man who went above and beyond for his family. I know he is looking down at you guys with love and tremendous pride.

Although I have never met Rudy his son Pete is good friends with my son Johnny and my heart is with his family especially every year on 9/11. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

In Memory
With Honor & Respect.
