Mr. Seghezzi was an outstanding gentleman. He gave all of us (Eddies friends) meaningful, strong, compassionate advice that helped us in our youth. Even going fishing with Mr. Seghezzi, you knew that even if you didn't succeed fishing, you were better served being in the caring company of Mr Seghezzi.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Seghezzi family at this difficult time. I had the honor and privilege to work under Dep. Supt. Seghezzi on the Mets. There was not a more capable, compassionate and professional officer. I also worked with Al in the private investigation field where his skills were invaluable. His life and love of family and commitment to service is a shining example as a member of the "Greatest Generation." Sir, Thank you and rest in peace for a job well done.

My sincerest sympathies are with you, Mary, and all of your family. Al was one of the sweetest, kindest gentlemen I have ever known. I so enjoyed our chats about family, Italy and how he met you (my favorite story). I'll always remember the look on his face when you arrived at the office and I presented him with a cupcake for his 90th birthday! I think he was speechless! I will miss him deeply, but I am so much richer for having met him. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Kathy

I first met Al in 2006 at a RAMP breakfast. We quickly became friends and I looked forward to seeing him every month at the breakfasts. I hadn't seen Al for the last 6 or 7 years but thought about him often. He was a great guy and he will always be in my memories. May my friend Al Rest in Peace.

It was a great pleasure to serve under Deputy Superintendent Al, as well as to be a friend. Al has always looked out for every member of the Department and every person that he has ever come in contact with. You will be missed. May Our Lord God hold you in his arms and grant you a well deserved rest. You and all your loved ones will always be in our prayers. Thank you Al.
