Dear Connolly Family,

My sincere condolences on the passing of Chief Connolly. He and my father, Rich, were Chiefs together in the mid- to late-90s, and good friends. My dad respected him a great deal. They spent time together as retirees, and Chief Connolly shared some very meaningful and helpful memories with us when my father passed away three years ago. Chief Connolly was a nice man, always. May his soul Rest In Peace, and may the many wonderful memories of him as a family man and his dedicated and impactful service bring you some solace during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

Dave Rewkowski
