Flags to be flown at half-staff on June 15-16
Gov. Kathy Hochul today announced flags on state buildings will be flown at half-staff on June 15 and 16 in honor of fallen Capt. Christopher J. Garrow.
"Capt. Christopher J. Garrow was a fearless public servant, who was committed to protecting his community and the state of New York," Hochul said. "Capt. Garrow's service and dedication to protecting his fellow New Yorkers will never be forgotten, and my heart goes out to his family and loved ones."
On June 12, Garrow passed away from an illness stemming from his assignment in and around the World Trade Center site following the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001. He has served the New York State Police for 23 years. Garrow is from Peru, New York, CIinton County, and is survived by his wife and two daughters.
