Adjournment in Memory of Patrick A. Dunlavey

The Senator from Worcester, Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin, Mr. Brewer, and the Senator from Worcester and Norfolk, Mr. Richard T. Moore, requested that when the Senate adjourns today, it adjourn in memory of Patrick A. Dunlavey of Templeton.

Patrick A. Dunlavey of Templeton passed away on July 26th at the age of 80.  Mr. Dunlavey was a former police chief in Templeton for seven years and a selectman in the town for nearly twenty one years.  As a local activist, Mr. Dunlavey was in his second term as cemetery commissioner and served on the community improvement committee and the town Skateboard Park Committee.  Mr. Dunlavey was also active in senior citizen and veteran’s issues as he himself was an Air Force Korean War veteran.  Mr. Dunlavey will be missed by family and friends for his charming smile and genuine desire to make the world a better place.

Accordingly, as a mark of respect to the memory of Patrick A. Dunlavey, at a half past eleven o’clock P.M., on motion of Mr. Tarr, the Senate adjourned to meet again tomorrow at eleven o’clock A.M.
