It is with the deepest sorrow that Region 7 informs you of the passing of Police Officer Gary Pietropaolo Jr. (Loving son of Gary Pietropaolo Region 7 Executive Board Member).

Many of us at Region 7 were blessed to witness young Gary grow up over the years.  He was a mainstay in many of our regional certifications and events, beginning as a scoresheet collector, steward, scorekeeper and once in a while a decoy for the Region.  Following in his dad’s footsteps, he grew up to become a extremely well respected member of the community and a very active Police Officer.  Gary touched so many lives and will be missed by all.
