GARNERVILLE - Family, friends and colleagues gathered in Orange County Monday to say a final goodbye to a retired police officer.

Neil O'Sullivan, who spent 28 years in the Orangetown Police Department, was mourned at the St. Gregory of Barbarigo Church in Garnerville.

The son of a former Orangetown councilman, O'Sullivan joined the police department after a stint in the Army. When he retired from Orangetown in January, he couldn't stay away from law enforcement and signed on part-time with the South Nyack-Grandview Police Department.

Officers from numerous departments were on hand at the funeral. O'Sullivan died last Wednesday after a lengthy battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Laura and their two daughters.
