Funeral held for New Milford victim in NYC terror attack

Friends, family mourn 32-year-old Darren Drake


NEW MILFORD, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey church is holding a funeral for a man who was among eight killed in a truck driver's rampage on a New York City bike path.

Bagpipe music filled the air Monday as the casket bearing Darren Drake was brought into and out of the New Milford church.

The 32-year-old project manager for Moody's Investors Service at the World Trade Center was out for a bike ride between meetings last Tuesday when he was hit.

Drake earned a bachelor's degree in political science at Rutgers University in 2007 and a master's degree in business administration in 2011 from Fairleigh Dickinson University. He was working toward a second master's degree at Stevens Institute of Technology.

He previously served as president of the New Milford school board.
