Hello Gary,

I'm wondering if your dad and mine knew each other. When I calculate his years of service, he joined the BPD in 1955, the same year as mine did. He was Officer John J. Gallagher.

In addition, both our dads were killed within 2 miles of each other. Your dad on Comm Ave/Harvard Streets, mine on Comm Ave/Brookline Ave. It's a Bank of America now, but was a Shawmut bank then.

I know how hard it is to have your dad taken so tragically. They were certainly brave and honorable officers.

Blessings on you and your family.
