NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Last Sunday, September 11, marked 21 years since the tragedy of 9/11. Pete Davidson's father Scott was a 33-year-old New York firefighter at the time. He had been dispatched to the World Trade Center after a second hijacked plane hit the south tower.

The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation wrote that "Scott's 'acts of heroism are not surprising' as it was his 'lifelong dream' to be a firefighter and he often called the role the 'greatest job in America', On September 11, 2001, Scott was on duty and responded to the call after a second hijacked airliner struck the World Trade Center, he was a brave and fearless man and a devout patriot. He was a friend to many, and will be sorely missed by us all."

Pete, who is taking a break from social media, hasn't shared any posts regarding the tribute. However he has talked about his father several times in the past.

Pete, who is known for his many tattoos, got his dad’s FDNY badge number as his first ink. Last year, Pete and his buddy Jon Stewart hosted a comedy benefit at Madison Square Garden to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks; and the profit from the show went to various 9/11 charities. Pete also co-wrote and starred in 'The King of Staten Island', which follows the life of an aspiring tattoo artist struggling over the death of his father.
