City of Spokane Fire Department Capt. Roger Libby holds a name tag for deceased FDNY firefighter Paul J. Pansini, while speaking with Inlander Music Editor Laura Johnson, not pictured, at the Bank of America Financial Center in Spokane, Wash., Friday, Sept. 5, 2014. Libby climbs up to the 21st floor from the second floor of the building six times at the beginning and end of each shift in honor of the 343 FDNY firefighters who were killed in New York on 9/11. Today, he walked in honor of FDNY firefighter Paul J. Pansini, from Engine 10, who was killed on 9/11. He also always walks for City of Spokane Firefighter John Knighten, who passed away from Multiple Myeloma on June 30, 2013. Libby says that he walks the stairs at the building an average of 14 times a month. (Young Kwak/Pacific Northwest Inlander)

Spokane Fire Captain Roger Libby finished his stair climb this year on Memorial Day at the Bank of America building to honor the 343 firefighters who died on 9/11. It took him over two and a half years. This is a story I photographed last September about his efforts: http://www.inlander.com/spokane/never-forget/Content?oid=2351384
