Bailey, 53, who won two Stanley Cups as a player with the Boston Bruins, was entering his 32nd season as a player or scout in the NHL -- his eighth as Kings director of pro scouting. He spent the previous 13 years as a scout for the Edmonton Oilers, which won five Stanley Cups during that time.
"First and foremost, we are shocked by the tragedies that have occurred today, and the tremendous loss of life that has taken place," Kings general manager Dave Taylor said in a statement. "Our entire organization is deeply saddened and shaken by the loss of these two individuals."
'This wonderful person was lost'
Fred Rimmele, a Boston-area physician described as an "old-style family doctor," died on Flight 175 while traveling to a conference in Los Angeles, said family friend Janet Daly.
Daly was scheduled to have dinner with Rimmele's wife, Kim.
When their plans fell through, Kim decided to stay longer, and canceled plans to fly out of Boston on Tuesday, said Daly. Shortly after the attacks, Daly e-mailed her friend that they had "reason to celebrate, because she didn't fly," Daly said. A one-sentence message came back: Kim's husband, Fred, was on Flight 175.
"He did God's work," Daly said. "All I know is that this wonderful person was lost for no reason I understand."
Actress 'one of the loveliest people'
Actress and photographer Berry Berenson, the 53-year-old wife of the late actor Anthony Perkins and the sister of actress Marisa Berenson, took Flight 11 to return to her Hollywood Hills home after a vacation on Cape Cod.
She was in the 1982 film "Cat People," the 1979 movie "Winter Kills" and the 1978 film "Remember My Name," which starred her husband, as well as the 1980 TV miniseries "Scruples." Berenson had also just completed a book on fashion designer Halston, said her spokeswoman, Susan Patricola, who also noted that her client shot covers for Life magazine.
"She was one of the loveliest, greatest people on the Earth, full of life," Patricola said "It's just devastating."
Berenson, who has two grown sons, married Perkins in 1973. The actor, best known for his starring role as Norman Bates in "Psycho," died in 1992 of AIDS. Today is the the ninth anniversary of his death.
Headed for an island experience
Santa Cruz Island, off Santa Barbara County, is a sweet refuge, 96 square miles of wave-tossed coastline and grassy hills.
That's where they were headed, three teachers and their prize students from Washington, D.C., elementary and middle schools, when they boarded American Flight 77 at Dulles International Airport.
The two elementary school kids and one middle school student were going to join a couple of dozen kids from Washington and California for three days of camping and tide-pool gazing on an expedition set up by the National Geographic Society.
"I just feel a deep sadness knowing that the teachers and the students were the creme de la creme of their schools," said Peggy Cooper Cafritz, president of District of Columbia Public Schools board. "It makes it all the more tragic."
Also aboard were two National Geographic employees who helped organize the trip, said Betty Hudson, a spokeswomen for the society. None of the victims' names were released.
