DIFS Mourns the Passing of Major Michael "Mike" Byrne
It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of Major Michael "Mike" D. Byrne after a brave fight against cancer. He is survived by his wife Kathy and his three children.
Major Byrne joined our agency in November 2003 after having served in the U.S. Army and retiring from the New York State Police. We will mourn the loss of a selfless public servant and valued friend.
Our deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.
