Friends describe him as a quiet introvert, but never a loner.
He had an independent streak but was often engrossed in work and burdened with private worries that were often difficult for him to express. However his concern for those that were close had never been withheld. He was driven by uncanny grit and a desire to make a positive influence on the world. Whether or not he made a positive influence on Las Almas may be a subject of debate throughout the many different kind of people here. When you rise so high in law-enforcement, it’s difficult not to make some enemies along the way.
But those that were able to peel back the tough, hardened shell of this experienced cop, always found a reliable friend, and a shy laugh.
He passed peacefully in his sleep, in his home town of Boston at 3:34 AM, the morning of September 30th of 2021. He had been living with an illness that he had only chosen to share with medical professionals. Friends will be gathered for a quiet memorial service at a future date yet TBD. It will be announced in a separate message.
In lieu of flowers, the Gazette has set up a hotline where donations can be made to a charity which supports orphaned youth care homes.
