MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- The Mount Vernon Daily Voice accepts signed and original letters to the editor up to 350 words. To submit your letter, email mountvernon@dailyvoice.com .

Retired Detective George McClendon was a major figure in Mount Vernon. He will be sorely missed and the City of Mount Vernon extends our deepest condolences to his family.

George started his career in 1991 with the Mount Vernon Police Department. In 1994, while off-duty, he was shot in the chest while protecting his family from a failed carjacking. George was a man of the community, engaged, involved and strove to make a difference in the lives of all people. In his spare time, he was an umpire for Little League baseball and served as security at New Rochelle High School. He inspired many to rise above and gave his time at numerous community and masonic events to empower those traveling toward their potential.

George's example of giving back is something we can all learn from and his memory will live on with his Mount Vernon family.
