Reflections for Police Officer Michael James Joyce

Michael was always a perfect young man. Lived a few doors away and we were always in the same gang of nneighborhood kids. As we got a bit older, we broke into groups and MICHAEL was my 1st spin the bottle kiss,WOW !! While I know he was missed, wish he had stayed in Oregon ! Last time we saw one another, Mike was home (1986) on vacation. He told me that he loved life in Ore and believed he would stay.....wish that had happened. The world has really lost a Great Guy ! RIP Michael....Love Ya Kiddo ! charlene

How ironic on this very day 91 years prior, one of your very own from the same department made the ultimate sacrifice for the people of Chester, PA just as you did so many years later. Rest in peace always and know that your law enforcement family will never, ever forget your service and sacrifice.

It’s taken a while and is long overdue but it’s nice to you and your fellow officers who also eventually succumbed to sickness resulting from this terrible incident recognized for the heroes that you all are. Condolences and prayers to your family and the men and women of the Chester Police Department. Rest in peace always and know that your law enforcement brethren will never forget.
