Veteran Rockland Sergeant Loses Battle With Cancer
Matthew Lindahl passed away too young. He was a remarkable officer and man.
The Rockland Police Department posted on it's Facebook page that Matt started in 1997.
It wasn't all he did that made him so amazing (and he did a lot!) it was that he was a 'genuinely good man'. They are not as plentiful as they should be.
Matt saved a lot of lives and got a lot of awards. It says a lot about him how he actually hated those awards. It's because he didn't do anything, including save a life, for the glory of it. He did it because it's what he did.
Matt had been fighting a recent cancer diagnosis, but suffered a fatal stroke.
The Rockland Police said that their hearts are broken...but that when you call, they will still be there.
