Thank you Officer Halloran for remembering my Uncle, Joe Lynch. As my grandfather died when my mother Rita was an infant, the only stories I ever heard about my grandfather were from Joe. Joe was a great son, brother, and uncle. He took care of his family when they were in need. My grandfather would have been proud of him.

I am honored to be your granddaughter Michael Lynch. Even though we never met, I have always had a special place in my heart for you.

Worked with Joe Lynch in the 002nd District in the early 70's. At times talked about his father, Michael. Really enjoyed working with Joe.

My father was named after you, I was named after my father, and my son was named after me. Your heroism and name carries on to this day and into the future. Thank you for your sacrifice and God bless all who loved and miss you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 83rd anniversary 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

The passage of time does not diminish your heroic actions that day in 1928. Thanks to this web page it will not be forgotten. Please know the CPD will never forget.

Not only does my family wish we had known our grandfather, but my mother was the youngest child of Michael Lynch, and grew up fatherless. She was 2 months old, to the day, of her father's murder.

I visited your grave today at Mt. Olivet in Chicago and said a prayer for you. You may be gone but not forgotten.
