During his 16-month deployment in Iraq, Michael Davey was known for incessantly talking about two topics: his family and becoming a Weymouth police officer.

Weymouth mourns hometown hero
RIP, Officer Davey.
RIP Ofc Davey, my thoughts and prayers go out to the Davey family. While I may never have had the pleasure of meeting ofc Davey, the pain is no less for a fallen brother.
"Fidelis Ad Mortem"
RIP Ofc. Davey. May his family and friends at WPD find comfort in the support of those of us who can truly understand the pain the they feel.
God bless, Rest in peace....
RIP Officer Davey. May God welcome you to your well-deserved place in heaven. My thoughts and prayers with you, your family and Weymouth PD...
RIP, Officer Davey.
My prayers go out for your soul and for your family!
R.I.P., Sir. You, your family and WPD are in my thoughts and prayers.
A profoundly sad day, week, and lifetime... for all involved.
I am without comprehension of what the Davey family must now forever endure.
I am equally not without empathy for what the Gale's extended family must also live with, for eternity.
"But for the Grace of God", if it were my 79 year old father who was responsible for such a preventable and unforgivable loss of life, I surely would bear some guilt by my own inaction.
Knowing, deep down that we probably all could do more (sooner) to safeguard those family members "in-question" by convincing them to give up their licenses, even if one of them (like Mr. Gale) has had a flawless driving record since the age of 16.
That one tragic, and irreversible collision could, and did happen in this case, unfortunately before someone chose to burden themselves with another loved one's diminished independence.
With new, elderly driver testing or not, we all need to look ourselves in the mirror and do what is right regarding the hard issues and liabilities of our loved ones on the roads everywhere.
Godspeed, Officer Mike Davey.. End of Watch, June 24, 2009. May he rest in peace knowing that his brothers and sisters in Massachusetts will take care of his family and let them know that he won't be forgotten.
Weymouth is my hometown so I too feel this one; in fact, I grew up only a couple of blocks from where this tragedy happened. I used to see Mike's Dad around town when I was still trying to get on the job back there; he was always a good guy too. I wish I were able to attend the services with you guys and be able to pay my respects properly.
If there is going to be some type of fund for his family, I hope someone posts it here so the Masscops Community can help.
Donations in Mike's memory may be made to the Michael P. Davey Childrens Fund c/o South Shore Savings Bank, 88 Pleasant St., South Weymouth, MA 02190.
RIP Ptl Davey.
I promise the Band will do right by you and your family this weekend.

The death of Weymouth police officer Michael Davey is a reminder of the multitude of dangers police officers face each day on the job.
Nearly a century since the last Weymouth police on-duty fatality
Solemn procession honors fallen Weymouth policeman
Wake and Funeral Arrangements for Weymouth Police Officer Michael Davey Wake: McDonalds Funeral Home Main St (Route 18), Weymouth Friday, August 28th, 20094pm-8pmLaw Enforcement Walk By at 6pmBPD Staging area will be the parking lot of Mary Lou’s Coffee (Rt 18) house at 5:30pm Funeral: St. Francis of Xavier Church Pleasant St, Weymouth Saturday, August 29th, 200910am
Does anyone have info on the benefit fund? I called WPD and they were supposed to FAX the info, but have got nothing all day. I guess they are getting a lot of calls.
Edit: Nevermind, that was what was posted. Should have read closer.
Staging area is listed wrong. Staging area for both wake and funeral is at Weymouth High School, Pleasant St.
I am honored that I and about a dozen of my co-workers have volunteered to provide patrol coverage for Weymouth for the last-half shift of Friday into Saturday, and an equal number have volunteered to provide coverage for the Saturday day shift, so every WPD member can attend the wake and funeral.
Kudos also to the MSP for providing coverage for the evening shifts of Friday and Saturday....whatever we can do to support our brother and sister officers, we're going to do it.
That is great why to stick together!!
My heart goes out to his family.....It's a shame to lose such a young officer. Rest in peace my brother....The lord needs you to command his legion of angels in heaven....You will be missed.
Losing a fellow police officer is rare but devastating

It is rare, but it can devastate a department.
When a police officer dies in the line of duty – something that has happened locally only a few times in the last decade – the loss reverberates through the ranks.
“It is traumatic, and it’s the same as a family losing a family member,” Medfield police Detective John Geary said. “That’s exactly what it is.”
Nine years ago, Medfield police lost officer Daniel McCarthy when he was struck by a car as he worked a construction detail. McCarthy, 38, left behind a wife and five young children.
This week, the Weymouth Police Department is struggling with its own loss. Officer Michael Davey was fatally injured Monday in an accident involving three vehicles as he directed traffic on West Street.
Davey, a 34-year-old Iraq war veteran, was married and the father of three children.
