BANGOR - Hundreds of people gathered to celebrate the life of the late Bangor Police Chief, Don Winslow, this afternoon.
Friends, family, and long-time coworkers filed into St. John's Catholic Church, remembering the life of a leader... former Police Chief Don Winslow.
Winslow's friend, Gail Kelly remembers his demeanor as "always peaceful." She recalled "He could take care of the situation. He wouldn't come in as the rough rough cop, he came in as the guy that just made it happen."
Winslow lost his battle with cancer last Thursday, saying goodbye to the world peacefully with his family by his side, never changing in his final moments.
Dave Melochick says, "He was just an all around great guy. He was a great guy to work for, a good boss. He had a great sense of humor. A funny guy... and serious when he had to be."
