Jeffry Todd Edelson

Sergeant Jeffry Edelson was killed in an automobile accident while on patrol near Liberty, New York.

While en route to a criminal mischief complaint, he made a U-turn on SR-55 to possibly conduct a traffic stop. As he attempted to catch up with the possible violator, his passenger side wheels left the roadway and struck the gravel shoulder. His patrol car went out of control, crossed the roadway, and struck a tree.

Earlier in the month, Sergeant Edelson had passed the Sergeant's exam. He was posthumously promoted.

Sergeant Edelson had served with the New York State Police for 6 years, and was assigned to Troop F.

He is survived by his parents and a sister.

Time goes fast. I’m eligible to join AARP. Lol. My older boy is engaged and a Trooper now. My younger son is in boot camp for the Sheriff’s Patrol.

The worm has turned. Ha ha. I’m getting simultaneous replays of 21 yr. old me. Lol. When they ask questions, I tell them,”Welcome to what my life was.”

There were lots of funny things we were around for that make me laugh to this day.

My younger boy cracks me up when he relates his boot camp life.

We all need some humor in our lives.

Hope you are at peace.

Your Friend,

Sergeant Anthony C. Lupardo Jr.
