Funeral arrangements have been announced for a longtime Putnam County Sheriff's deputy who was killed in a double-fatal crash in Northern Westchester.

Michael J. Moore, 50, of Mahopac, was killed around 6 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 25 on Route 6N, said Yorktown Police.

When police and fire officials arrived on the scene, they found Moore, who was the driver of one of the vehicles, dead.

Denise Ryan, 56, also of Mahopac, the driver of the second vehicle, was found injured and transported to Westchester Medical Center where she succumbed to her injuries, police said.

Moore began his career with the New York City Department of Probation in 1997 as a probation officer. In 1998 he went on to become a police officer with the New York City Police Department. In September of 2003, he left the City of New York and became a patrolman for Hastings-On-Hudson Police Department where he remained until his retirement in 2019.

After retiring from the Hastings-On-Hudson PD, Moore joined the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department where he was assigned to the Special Patrol Division.
