Death – Retired Manchester Police K-9 Tya Passes Away – Mix 94.7 KMCH

Death – Obituary

The Manchester Police Department is mourning the loss of one of their former officers.

Tya served as the department’s K-9 from 2009 to 2018, working alongside her partner, Officer Brad Comer. 

Tya passed away last Tuesday. 

“The best part about being Tya’s partner for nine years was going to work and have Tya find illegal narcotics, people, and items that were hidden or lost,” says Officer Comer. “Tya was an easy dog to work with being she wanted to please me as her handler. Our success as a team was only because we had great fellow coworkers in law enforcement that did their jobs well and would request us to assist them in Delaware and surrounding counties. Thank you to everyone for sending kind messages and condolences following her death. Working with Tya to make our community a better place was truly an honor.”

Chief Jim Hauschild says Tya had a special personality that everyone loved. Hauschild says the citizens of Manchester were very lucky to have her working for them. “Tya’s service will never be forgotten.”

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
