Paramus Police Memorial Service

The inclement weather made the Memorial Service a touch and go proposition for the scheduled outdoor ceremony. In between and during a slight rainfall, the ceremony was held at the Police Headquarters Memorial Park area. Detective Sergeant Robert Von Schalscha, once again, acted as Master of Ceremonies, a position he has held for many years. He welcomed Mayor Rich LaBarbiera, members of the Council and many police dignitaries active and retired. Not once did he ask for an umbrella to ward off the raindrops.

The invocation was conducted by Police Chaplain Larry Evans followed by an introduction by Paramus Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenburg and a message by Paramus Mayor Rich LaBarbiera who adroitly incorporated the weather with the ceremony by saying that it represented the tears shed for those long gone.

Paramus Police Memorial Service Taps were played by Frank S. Scott from Boy Scout Troop 334 and came from a distance thus adding to the effect of the program. Amazing Grace was played by bagpiper and Paramus Detective Robert Olive who handles the instrument with finesse.

Von Schalscha mentioned the recent retirees who had joined the Walk of Remembrance. They were Police Officer John Lavezzi, Chief Christopher Brock, Lieutenant John Scully, Lieutenant Salvaore LaFerlita and Captain Brian Goggin. Von Schalscha mentioned that he would be joining that Walk in October, that this was his last job as MC of the Memorial Service.

After the ceremony, food was served under a large tent by the Papa Razzi Restaurant and many gathered there to exchange friendships. We were joined by former Councilman Ralph Amato.
