He was a cop that everyone knew and admired. The community mourned the sudden loss of retired NYPD Deputy Chief Charles Scholl, who passed away on June 17th at the age of 64.
A large crowd gathered on Avenue V and Coleman Street on Saturday for an “NYPD Fallen Heroes Fundraiser Dedicated in Loving Memory of Deputy Chief Charles Scholl.” Organized by Evans Georgopulos, over 100 antique cars were on display at Saturday’s event.
Scholl was born on January 1, 1958, joined the NYPD in November 1979 and served for 41 years until his retirement in December 2020 at the age of 62. He served as NYPD Chief of Patrol Borough Brooklyn South and various commands in Brooklyn. A lifelong Brooklynite and Yankees fan, he was well-educated and spoke several languages.
Members of the 63rd Precinct, including Community Affairs Officer Thomas Podd, were in attendance, along with former State Senator Marty Golden, local residents and QT the Clown.
Trophies were given to the owners of all the antique cars on display.
