PHILIP T. GUZA

Phil Guza's sons, who grew up in Fair Haven, are now married and have their own sons. Peter Guza, 30, lives in North Andover, Mass. and has an 18-month-old son, Owen. Tom Guza, 34, lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, and has a son, Lincoln, who will be two years old on Sept. 10.
Peter says losing their father on 9/11 has been a big challenge but it has become easier over time.
"Without a doubt, it brought our family to be very close and that is the one big positive we think about," he said.
The brothers last year started a charity in their father's honor, the Phil Guza Memorial Charitable Trust which gives out scholarships for the study of math and science to graduating seniors. The web site is philguzamemorial.org.
