Reflections for Police Officer David D. Troy

Officer Troy, it has been 63 years since you were taken from us. New England law enforcement has continued to thrive, learn and become safer due to the traditions and sacrifices that you, your family and too many others have made for us. Thank you for your service.

David Troy was my father, Joseph D Troy’s first cousin.
My sisters and I have heard this story our whole lives. It made our family so sad that David was so young when it happened and that he left behind a young family. ❤️

I wish you were a 89 year-old geezer today, not the fading memory of a fine young man who died way too soon.

John D. Talbott, Stamford born and raised. A geezer today, 15 when you gave your life to keep us safe.

I wish I had had a chance to know you. I wish you had had the chance to know me. I wish you could have met and known my family, my wife and my daughters. From what I hear, you would have loved them. I did not get my chance to know you but I do miss you.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 52nd anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

I pray for the solace of all those that love and miss you for I know that both the pain and pride are forever.
