John was appointed to the N.Y.C. Transit Police on May 16, 1956 and retired on November 13, 1988.
An earlier notice indicated that John had passed and comments were made by many that John was a gentleman's gentleman, a gracious gentleman, a caring person, a considerate man etc.

I, along with Tony Lomanto and Frank Crisa, had the pleasure of working with John and will always have fond memories of those days. I am sure all who knew John have wonderful memories of their own. He was Class personified.

Condolences may be sent to John's sister, Eileen Bunyan 5260 97th Avenue East Bradenton, Florida 34211-3779 or via email at Eileensez@aol.com or to John's Daughter, via Joan email at Joanmarieroberts@Hotmail.com

Sincere condolences to the entire McBarnette family and may "Johnny Mac," as I called him, rest in peace.

Lou:
It is with deep sorrow in my heart that I have to say that Judy, my beloved wife of almost 53 years (August 30th would have been that anniversary) passed away last evening at 8:30 pm in our home. She always enjoyed the Florida reunions and seeing old friends. She was truly my better half.

 

This is all the information I have, and I will not be able to send out any further information as I am preparing to go in the hospital for back surgery tomorrow morning (7/13). Kevin and Judy always attended our Florida reunions even though the last few years she was in a lot of pain. As much pain as she was in, she was always very pleasant. I and many others will miss seeing her at the next Florida Reunion.
May Judy "Rest in Peace”

 

Cards can be sent to Kevin at 4725 Boxford Rd, Virginia Beach VA 23456.

RET. P.O. VICTOR ANNALORO
6/27/1943 - 05/19/2022

It is with great sadness that I inform you that Victor Annaloro passed away on May 19,2022 of a heart attack. He had been fighting numerous health problems for many years. His wife and best friend, Gehette, passed away 2 ½ years ago unexpectedly from cancer and he missed her terribly. They were preparing to celebrate the marriage of their only child, Nina Annaloro, a Registered Nurse.

After her mother's sudden passing Nina postponed her wedding to her fiancé George, put her life on hold and took care of her father until his unexpected death.

Vic was a member of the class of Dec. 1, 1965. He was assigned to District 5, then on Jan. 1, 1970, moved to District 1 and ended
his career in the O.U. where he worked from 1979 until he retired in December 1985.

Vic started another career as the Supervisor of Security for the Limited, a chain of clothing stores, until his retirement from the chain. Vic had a breadth of knowledge of obscure facts and history. He had a large following on Facebook where he shared his knowledge and honest comments on life and politics. Vic also was an avid photographer and loved to share his photography. He was a noted historian of the Flushing area
having been born and raised in the area he continued to love, and live in, until his passing. He was known affectionately as "The Mayor of Flushing". He will be missed

John P. Novak

Our deepest condolences and sympathies to the Annaloro family. May Victor Rest in Peace.

April 19, 2022                                      A BEAUTIFUL TRIBUTE TO BRENDAN 'JOE' McGARRY

From  the Retirees Association Chaplain Rabbi Harry Berkowitz

"What does the Lord require of you? But to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly" (Micha 6, 8).

My dear and beloved friend,

G-d instructed society to appoint judges in order to preserve justice in society. But for justice to truly be adjudicated, society is obligated to appoint police officers to insure that the laws are respected.

Joe, you represented what G-d had in mind. You truly were an appendage of G-d spiritually and morally. We all know that it takes a special person to deal with the day-to-day enforcement of the laws in preserving the quality of life in society. It is not only the education, but the gift of understanding on how to properly face the daily challenges of policing. You were G-d's training officer.

I, personally, will cherish the memory of the wonderful joy you and your bagpipers brought at all of my childrens' weddings. The "Luck of the Irish" enhancing our Jewish weddings!

May  G-d grant comfort to your beloved family and extended families as we all grieve your passing. But we take comfort in the privilege of the opportunity we had in sharing your life with us.

May your name be an eternal blessing for the kindness and happiness you brought to so many countless people in all walks of life.

May your soul be bound in the bond of eternal life!

With many tears shed, I, like so many, will miss you.

With my deepest sympathies,

Rabbi Harry Berkowitz

I only worked with him for 6 years in TPF but they were 6 of the best years that I had on the job. Stan always had my back along with so many others during those years.

LIFETIME MEMBER RET. POLICE OFFICER BRENDAN “JOE” McGARRY
06/30/1947 – 04/14/2022

We sorrowfully regret to inform all our members, our friends, and their families of the passing of one of the "legends" of the Transit Police Department, Lifetime Member Ret. P.O. Brendan 'Joe' McGarry, on Thursday, April 14th, 2022. Joe had been suffering a very long time with a cancer that started on his only kidney, led to surgery, and further treatments for the cancer that had spread through his body.

 

Joe was a fighter all the way, keeping to his Marine Spirit, and never giving up. Ultimately, his treatments started causing serious side effects that ultimately caused Joe to reluctantly stop his treatment and decided to remain home with his wonderful family who had been giving their father loving care. Thankfully, his family members were at his side when he passed away.

 

Joe was a unique person who cared very much for his family and all fellow officers. He was well liked by all ranks in the Department and had the reputation of standing up for his men and women as a Delegate in District 1 to the Transit then NYPD PBAs. He would go out of his way to help whenever and wherever possible and was a mentor to many officers. He started a relationship with Sloan-Kettering Hospital in NYC and, when needed, all it took was a phone call to get that person in for examination and treatment. Joe was appointed to the Transit Police on December 26,1972 and retired under the Heart Bill September 30, 2005.

Services took place on April 21st to 23rd.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made to The Tunnel to Towers Foundation in memory of Brendan McGarry (do not use Joe, please) The form can be downloaded here:  In Memory of Online Form (t2t.org)

Condolences may be sent to Joe's daughter, Colleen Kobayashi,  90 Merritt St., Lindenhurst NY 11757 and she will pass it on to her brothers and sisters.

You may also post at the funeral home website when his name is posted Bellmore Funeral Home: Since 1940 - Bellmore Funeral Home 

 

 Joe was a very good friend, not only to myself, but to many others in the Transit Police Department. Your suffering is over, Joe, may you Rest in Peace.

RET. P.O. RICHARD BURNS

3/31/1933 - 2/14/2022

Hi Lou,

It is with a very heavy heart that I am passing this on.  Ret. PO Richard Burns passed away on Valentine’s day.  This was a man of many talents the best of which was his ability to make everyone a friend.  He was an amazing painter, not the house kind, and a tremendous cook.  Rich came on the job in "66 (I think it was Sept. but I'm not sure.  He retired in Jan.1986, I believe.  I worked with Rich when he was in Transit/OU.  He was the hardest worker I ever saw; he did the work of 10 men. Many times he would regale us with tales from his military time in Germany and Korea.  He maintained a friendship with NYPD Chief Murphy re their relationship when they were both in the same orphanage. It is also where Rich met the young girl that he would marry, Nancy, who predeceased him by several years. Rich also left a rich police legacy - One of his sons, Edward (Eddie), and a grandson, Michael, became members of NYPD.  He will be missed by MANY.

Richard was appointed to the Transit Police on November 4, 1966 and retired January 2, 1986

Services took place on February 17th & 18th.

For those that want to send either Mass or condolences cards they can be addressed to the Burns family at 46 3rd Street, Ronkonkoma, NY 11779

Our deepest condolences and sympathies to the Burns family. May Richard Rest in Peace.

LIFETIME MEMBER RET. P.O.MICHAEL "MIKE" CANADE (late notice)
11/26/1939 - 08/27/2021

We received the following email from Mike Canade's son, Michael Anthony Canade:

I have been redirecting all the letters my dad was receiving in Bradenton, FL to my address in Puerto Rico and I recently received a letter from the NYC Retired TPO Association and managed to get the website address. The primary intention was to let you know that very sadly my father passed away in August, but when I upload the website the first thing I see on my computer screen is an article related to Police Memorial Day. I felt guilty for not having notified before, I would have liked and I think my father also that his name was on the list.

My dad's name is, or was, Michael Allan Canade and his NYC Transit Police Badge Number: 1491. Everyone knew him as Mike Canade. 
Very sadly, his body was found in the condominium unit where he lived. This was on August 27, 2021. On November 26, he would have been 82 years old. I was notified by the Puerto Rico Police who in turn were notified by the Manatee County Sheriff Office. I helped identify the body at the Manatee Medical Examiner Office and he was cremated at Groover Funeral Home at Mansion Memorial Park, Ellenton, Florida with a naval ceremony as he was a NAVY veteran. This was on Sept 23, 2021.

I attached to this email a photo of him in uniform for the date of January 09, 1967. If you need any additional information, please let me know as long as I can also provide it.

Thank you for your time and God Bless you,
Michael Anthony Canade

We regret to inform our members and fellow retirees of the passing of Lifetime Member Ret. P.O. Michael "Mike" Canade, on August 27, 2021, at the age of 81 years. Mike was appointed to the Transit Police on April 1, 1965 and retired July 5, 1985. He was assigned to District 34 for many years. I spoke to Mike a few years ago, and he told me his health was declining to the point he had trouble walking and was basically confined to a wheelchair.

Condolences may be sent to Mike's son, Michael Anthony, at m.canade@yahoo.com

Frank Crisa and I had the pleasure of working with Mike in D34 for many years. A funny story, Mike worked a steady 4-12 tour and would always show up around 1:00PM, go into the muster room and look at the day's roll call, then start asking: "How come...?" his assignment was as shown and not something else. He would ask why he doesn't get the RMP and we would have to ask him if he ever put in for it. He always said "No" and that was our answer to his question.
Mike was a fine officer, trustworthy, and respectful in all matters. Everyone in the command got along with Mike and he will be missed.

Our deepest condolences and sympathies to the Canade family.
May he Rest in Peace.

We regret to inform our members and fellow retirees of the passing of Lifetime Member Ret. P.O. Joseph Pittaro, also known affectionately as "Panda Bear," on Thursday, January 27th at the age of 83 years.

Joe had been diagnosed this past October with colon cancer after his first ever colonoscopy. From then on, his health declined to the point where he sold his home in Clermont FL and moved into a nursing home near his daughter, Elizabeth, in Viera FL. While in rehab, he suffered with pneumonia, complicated with COPD, congestive heart failure and a blood infection and passed away.

Joe was appointed to the Transit Police on December 1, 1965 and retired February 28, 1987.

I spoke to his daughter, Elizabeth, who told me that no services are being scheduled and his remains will be cremated.

Condolences may be sent to Elizabeth at 3466 Spencer Lane, Viera FL 32940-8054 or mousey1270@aol.com

I first met Joe when he and I were Transit PBA delegates. After retirement, he and I worked in Security at St. Francis Hospital until he moved to Florida, and most recently, we met at one of the Florida reunions. He always had a joke and always made you smile. He will be missed by many fellow officers.

From Lou Hollander: .  I worked with Joe in City-wide A/C team 1.  He was Eddie Vetter’s partner.  He was a good guy, a good cop, and a pleasure to be around.  He always put a smile on your face. I believe he attended all the Florida Reunions. The above photo was taken at the 2013 Florida Reunion

Our deepest condolences and sympathies to the Pittaro family. May Joseph Rest in Peace.

I had the honor of working with Capt. Marks in the late '60s when he was the CO of District 1 and always found him to be fair and honest and he was an avid collector of transit memorabilia. I don't know if it is true, but, I've been told, he had an original pot belly stove from the old 3rd Avenue El, among his collection.

At the request of the family, we are also posting the obituary notice:

Richard Marks, age 90, passed away 1/19/22.  Richard was born and raised in the Bronx. He lived there until moving to Yonkers to raise his family in 1962 and remained in that home until his death.

He went to Samuel Gompers High School and was then then drafted into the Army. The veteran of the Korean War remained active in the Army reserve. He retired as a lieutenant colonel.

He worked over eight years as a lighting maintenance helper for the Transit  Authority.  He then became a transit cop and quickly rose through the ranks. In 1965 he became the youngest transit police captain at that time.   He remained a district commander for 24 years until he retired.

Richard was an avid collector of police badges, memorabilia and railroadiana.  He also enjoyed driving his Model A Ford as well as being a member of the AACA Car Club of Westchester which he was president for several years.

He is predeceased by his loving wife, Gladys, and will be buried with her. He is survived by his son, Greg, daughter, Cindy and three grandsons, Eddie Jr, Christopher and Louis

Services took place on January 30th & 31st with burial in Calverton Nat’l Cemetery, Wading River NY
