Harold Thomas Dwyer, 92, passed away on Feb. 5, 2021.

 

Born in a house on Bleecker Street in Ridgewood in 1928 to Harold Dwyer and Elizabeth Becht.

 

After a strong battle fighting Parkinson’s and heart disease he is now at peace.

Harold is survived by his wife, Theresa Dwyer; his son Thomas Dwyer and daughter-in-law Vita; his daughter Kathleen Hynes and grandchildren James and Theresa; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was predeceased by his sister, Ellen Senff and son-in-law Deacon James Hynes.

 

As a man of service, he lived an active life with 35+ years in both the NYPD and National Guard as a retired Command Sergeant Major and 7 years with US Customs. 

In his 16 years on patrol with the police department he was proud to have delivered 7 babies. He loved his job and always said “It’s a wonderful feeling to save a life.”

 

Harold and Theresa were married at St. Brigid in 1951. As a proud and active member of his parish, he served as the Lay Trustee for over 40 years.
