Services were held after a funeral procession for the 29-year-old Carmel police officer who was killed when his motorcycle was struck by a U.S. mail truck in Putnam County late last week.

A Mass of Christian burial was held Tuesday at St. James the Apostle R.C. Church on Gleneida Avenue in Carmel as members of many local, state and regional agencies formed the procession. Interment followed at Fishkill Rural Cemetery.

Gary Pietropaolo, 29, was off-duty while driving east on Route 301 in Carmel when he was hit by the postal truck driven by 57-year-old Mary Gosney-Hyatt of Holmes as she was pulling out of a driveway. around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, June 7, according to Kent Police Chief Alexander DiVernieri Jr.

Pietropaolo, of Fishkill, graduated from the Westchester County Police Academy in 2011 and began his career as a police officer at SUNY New Paltz before joining the Carmel Police Department in March 2016.
