Pete Davidson paid tribute to his late father, a Brooklyn Heights firefighter who died on 9/11.

The "Saturday Night Live" star, who was 7-years-old when his father, Scott Davidson, was killed in the World Trade Center terrorist attacks, shared a series of touching photos on Instagram.

"Can't believe tomorrow is going to be 15 years. Missing the legend !!! Thank u all for ur kind words and support as always #werememberthem," he wrote Saturday along with a photo of himself and his dad drinking Heineken beer.

On Sunday, on the 15th anniversary of the attacks, he shared another photo of his father.

"One of my dads homies gave me his old dirty a-- boots from work and a sick photo of him lookin like a young legend !!! Apparently my dad wore sketchers how f---in embarrassing!" he captioned the humorous post.

Scott was a firefighter out of Ladder 118 in Brooklyn Heights.

On Sept. 11, 2001, Scott and his colleagues, Lt. Robert Regan and firefighters Leon Smith, Vernon Cherry, Peter Vega and Joey Agnello, rode their rig to ground zero shortly after the second plane smashed into the twin towers.

The brave firefighters, never seen again, were rushing people out of the Marriott World Trade Center hotel when the 110-story towers collapsed. More than 900 guests and hundreds of Marriott employees escaped that day, likely saved by the six men.
