It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of our FOP brother, MPD Sgt. Jeffrey Newbold. Jeff fought a good fight against cancer until it called him home.
For those of you who know Jeff, he will forever be in our hearts. He was an active member of DC FOP Lodge #1. Not only was he one of our delegates during this past August's National FOP Conference in Nashville, TN but he recently ran unopposed to be our next Recording Secretary on the DC FOP Lodge #1 Board of Directors. Jeff would have been sworn into office this coming January and so many of us were looking forward to continuing to work with him as we have done for countless years in the past.
As Chairman Matt Mahl from the MPD FOP Labor Committee said today, "Jeff's legacy will be remembered as a quiet and private person, but always there to help someone out in need. Jeff fought to the end, and continued to work when many of us would have given up."
Please keep Jeff, his family and friends, his co-workers and fellow FOP Lodge members in your prayers during this difficult time. We will advise everyone of arrangements when they are announced.
Rest easy Jeff...we will take it from here.
