A retired NYPD detective who spent six grueling months working on the Ground Zero recovery effort has died from a 9/11-related cancer, his family said as they mourned him Sunday.

Detective Christopher Cranston, 48, who spent his career in Brooklyn’s 60th and 62nd Precincts, died of cancer Saturday — and his grieving wife ripped into the U.S. senators who are blocking the renewal of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

Clare Cranston said she called Sens. Rand Paul and Mike Lee from her dying husband’s hospital bed, getting a staff member on the phone for Lee, and a recorded message for Paul.

“I called up Sen. Lee and Sen Paul and I told them they need to sign the bill," she said. ”I opened with, ‘How did they sleep last night? Because I slept on a chair for the last 14 days."

Paul (R-Ky.) and Lee (R-Utah) stood in the way of a unanimous consent request Wednesday that would have sent the $10.2 billion renewal of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund to the president’s desk. They backed down Thursday, agreeing to vote next week in return for having their own amendments considered.
