I reached out to find out further information.  His family never notified the Department but did notify the PBA and all the info they had was the date of his passing and that he was living in PA. Brian was a real standup guy.  I had the pleasure of knowing and working with him back in the 70’s when I was in CSPS and he was the Roll Call Man.

Lifetime Member, Ret. Capt. Joseph Cannon, passed away on May 19th. Cause of death is unknown at this time. Joe was appointed to the Transit Police on June 21, 1965 and retired from NYPD after the merge on November 1, 1997.
  
Funeral services were held on May 23rd and 24th.:

Lou worked in Dist. 1 with Joe when he first got out of the academy and felt Joe was a real nice guy. I also worked with Joe when I came out of the Academy in April, 1966.

I agree with Lou that Joe was always a great fellow officer who always would help out us "Probies." May he Rest in Peace.- Tony 


LORRAINE WINTERS

Lorraine Winters, sister of Lifetime Member Ret. Det. Lee Winters passed away on April 9th. Lee sent his blog to Lou, with a very sad story of his sister's illness and her fight to regain her health.

Brothers and Sisters,

It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me. I haven’t been myself this long, long, winter night. I wrote a blog post about it.
I experienced a family event that some of you may relate to. Others may learn a thing or two. In any event, I sincerely wish you well in dealing with this unpredictable life that gets even more unpredictable as we move into these more tenuous years.

Be well,
Lee

Our deepest condolences to the Cannon and Winters families. May their deceased loved ones rest in peace.
