Remembering a Malverne hero


Jan. 10 marked three years since Malvernite and NYPD Detective Steven McDonald died at the age of 59. Family members of McDonald, along with members of the Malverne Police Department, the NYPD and elected officials gathered at St. Agnes Church in Rockville Centre for a memorial service to remember McDonald’s legacy.

People gathered to remember the life, service, sacrifice and family of McDonald, who was shot in 1986 in Central Park and left paralyzed until his death nearly 31 years later.
