Dozens of fellow officers, friends and family members attended a private viewing Monday for Patrick Curley, the Suffolk County police officer who died in a car crash Friday.
Cruisers and other police vehicles lit up Glen Street in front of McLaughlin Kramer Megiel Funeral Home Monday evening as officers lined up two-by-two to file in and pay respects.
Curley, a Huntington resident, was killed when the SUV he was driving collided with the rear of a garbage truck backing out of a business onto Jericho Turnpike at 3:33 a.m. Friday. He was 40 years old.
A funeral service is set for 10 a.m. Tuesday at St. Patrick's Church in Glen Cove.
Curley is survived by his wife, Emily; daughter Sophia Jane; mother Mary Ann; and three siblings, Brendan, Katherine and Elizabeth Myers.
