REMEMBERING CONNECTICUT CAPITOL POLICE CHIEF MIKE FALLON
I think Speaker Chris Donovan said it the best. “Mike Fallon was a an officer and a gentleman,” he said.
I couldn’t agree more.
On December 3rd, 2009, the Capitol Police chief died after a fierce but short battle with cancer. He leaves behind a wife Cheryl, two young children and a lot of broken hearts.
Today, lawmakers paid tribute to Fallon. Governor Jodi Rell declared Feb. 3rd as “Mike Fallon” day in the State of Connecticut. Before becoming the police chief at the Capitol, Fallon worked as a police officer in Hartford for 23 years. Today, his fellow police officers filled the gallery to pay tribute.
As one lawmaker said, “Mike was the real deal.”
THAT he was. We miss you.
