I had the pleasure to have Pat Murphy counsel me as I transitioned to the position of Chief of Police in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He was a walking encyclopedia of all things policing, and police leadership. His mentoring provided me with many ideas and concepts that I used during my tenure as chief. My condolences to Mrs. Murphy and the Murphy family on the loss of their husband and father. American policing has lost an enlightened voice.

Our father passed away in October, 2008. Some years before he died, he wrote a 29 page autobio. From page 21: "...Canasta was a very popular game (card game) then. We frequently went on family picnics on Staten Island with new ideas. Patrick Murphy and his wife Betty joined in with their children. We even orchestrated a spaghetti dinner at one of the picnics. We also spent at other times, all day trying to make coffee and roast corn. Patrick Murphy who was later to become Police Commissioner of New York City, owned a large two family house on Sixth Avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and he offered the upper floor to Marie and me, for a rental. We moved into Pat's house and were joined their by my parents and had many happy times there. Richard Joseph was our first child, back when we were living on 49th Street and Paul was born 4 years later while we lived on Sixth Avenue." That was May, 1953 and I've know "Uncle Pat, Aunt Betty and my cousins" that long! Great memories that will live on and on. My brother, Richard, and I have all of you in our thoughts and prayers!

Paul Clark and Richard Clark, Cleveland, Ohio

While I didn't know Commissioner Murphy, I remember reading of him as a kid in NY, and he was part of why I became a Police Officer. Having met & worked with his son Jerry this past week, that integrity I read about back then clearly was passed on to his son Jerry. Our condolences and prayers for the Commissioner and all of your family. Asst Chief Tom Mylett
