The Connecticut State Police Union has set up a fund to help Sgt. Brian Mohl’s family after they received several inquiries from other Troopers, law enforcement officers, and the public asking how they could provide financial assistance.
Sgt Mohl, a 26-year veteran of the CT State Police, was killed last week in Woodbury when his Troop car was caught in the torrential flood waters that devastated parts of Connecticut in the wake of Tropical Storm Ida. Mohl is survived by his wife, Susan, and three children ranging in age from 14 to 28.
His family released the following statement on Sunday:
We want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. The loss we have suffered is immeasurable. Brian was an incredible person. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, uncle, and friend and to say he will be missed is just not enough.
Brian loved being a State Trooper. He proudly served with the Connecticut State Police for over 26 years and those that worked with him said he always had a way of making you feel as though you were part of the team and that he truly cared about them.
Even though Brian was committed to his work he always found a way to put his family life first. He never lost sight of that. If he wasn’t at work, he was spending time with us. Brian’s love for his family was larger than life. He had a special way about him with his kindness, humor and warmth.
Seeing the outpouring of prayers and support from the Connecticut State Police, the New York State Police, the law enforcement community and the community as a whole has deeply touched our hearts. We cannot begin to express our gratitude for all of your compassion.
A wake for Sgt. Mohl was held this morning at the Xfinity Theater in Hartford where law enforcement officers from across the state and beyond came and paid their respects to their fallen brother officer and offered condolences to his family. Two of Sgt. Mohl’s brothers are New York State Troopers.
A funeral for Sgt. Mohl took place today, Thursday September 9, 2021 at the Xfinity Theater in Hartford at 11 am.
