Farewell To DiStefano


Share post:

Last Friday night, the Verona Police Department and friends celebrated the career of Captain Fred DiStefano, who retired from the department this June after 39 years. More than 200 people turned out at the Hanover Manor, including former members of the Verona force, Cedar Grove officers and many town officials. There were tributes, proclamations and even one large practical joke: In the slideshow below of photos taken by John McClellan, look for the shirt with all the hashmarks on the sleeve. Normally, one is given out for every five years of service, but someone clearly thought DiStefano had been around much longer.
