With the support of its community and law enforcement from across the state, the Plymouth Police Department said a final farewell to fallen officer Gregg Maloney.
The funeral mass began at 11 a.m. Tuesday at St. Peter’s Church.
The 43-year-old officer died in a motorcycle crash while on duty last week. The cause of the crash remains unknown.
On Monday hundreds of officers from across the commonwealth and beyond marched into Plymouth Memorial Hall to honor Officer Maloney.
“I think Gregg would be very humbled by it, to get all this attention. He did his job without a lot of fanfare and he would have been very humbled by turnout here,” Capt. John Rogers of the Plymouth Police Department said.
The line to get into the hall for the wake lasted hours for a man many remembered as someone who gave everything to his job and the community he loved, as well as his wife and two young sons.
“We were boys’ kindergarten teachers and we knew them as family. They were a wonderful, beautiful family,” Susan Page said.
“It’s a tremendous loss to the whole community, but it’s also foremost a loss to the family,” Judy Foster said.
After the funeral mass there will be a procession to the cemetery.
