Steven McDonald, Hero NYPD cop, passes away at 59

Last year Steven McDonald was so generous to share his message of forgiveness with all of us in the City of Poughkeepsie as we remembered September 11th together. We are all deeply saddened to hear of his loss and our thoughts and prayers are with his family. The Daily News reported this sad news early January 2017.

Steven McDonald was an icon of mercy and forgiveness, a prophet of the dignity of all human life, a shining example of the best of what the New York Police Department represents, a loving husband and father, and a fervent and faithful Catholic,” Dolan said in a statement.
