Kenny, My Dad still speaks of you often. He really loved you as a partner and a friend. After his transfer, you made his transition much easier. I am proud to have known you. How ironic that I wound up working with your son Kenny in the 67 Squad, just as you and my Dad worked together in the 72 Squad. I miss you and think of you often. Mike Zarrilli III (Lt. NYPD)

Miss ya Bro. I know you must be laughing with Howie and Tony by your side as I type this. Mike and I often speak about all the good times we all shared with you and the boys in the 72 Sqd room. Loads of great fun and laughs, good food too . You continue to and always will be part of us. THANKS, your lanzman Ira

I actually met Kenny and his wife Michele at a Columbia Christmas Party , I met him through his father inlaw, Mike Spilluto, a retired Hyway 2 cop, who always played Santa Claus at the Party. Who knew then I would wind up working with Kenny at the Auto Crime Unit for a short while. But then Squads were short, and slots had to be filled, so Kenny wound up going to the 72sqd. I was shocked to hear that he got a heart attack, which caused his demise. He was a good Detective with a good sense of humor. Many years later I met Michele again, as well as also meeting Kenny Jr.. Kenny I'm sure if you were here you would be proud of Kenny Jr. For like you he is a good guy, who now carries your Det.Shield. Life was to short for you, but I guess maybe there is some truth to the saying "The Good Die Young"hopefully there is some crazy reason for it. Until we find the answer God Rest Your Soul Kenny

I was in Company 81-22 with Kenny. I was 29 at the time, married with 1 child. I believe Kenny was older and married with children like me. We got along great. We were always told in the Academy that in our class, there was bound to be at least 2 or 3 Line of Duty deaths. Thomas Rootolo and Kenny were those 2. Rest in peace guys, we love and miss you.
— Joe Torregrosa

I also was in Kenny's academy class 81-22. As I type this I look to my wall and see our company photo, forefront and center is Kenny. A great Cop, husband and father. May you always rest in peace my good friend.
— John Tucci

I came on the job with Kenny in 1981. We were in Company 81-22 in the Academy. Our paths crossed many time through out our careers. When Kenny was in BSTF i was in 72 anti-crime, he was always helping out in Auto cases. In 1994 when I was transfered to the 72 Squad I worked side by side with him and got to know him a lot better. I also watched his son grow up and come on the job. Has it really been almost 10 years? Don Tierney

Two of my best years on the job, were spent at the 72 squad working along side Kenny and the gang. Kenny was a good natured guy who was always willing to help out, both on and off the job. We joked alot up there, but as the years have gone by what i realize most is that we came together as a tight unit. Kenny was a key part, and the job was fun for us. Kenny was unique and the squad itself was memorable. Here's looking at you Kenny....Dave

A memory of Kenny was while with the 6-0 and meeting him and Keith and Lenny while they wre with ALU, their knowledge and perserverence lead to a collar that night but more important Meeting a great cop with a heart of gold. You wil be missed.

I AM A BRIDGE AND TUNNEL SERGEANT ON THE VZ BRIDGE AND WAS GOING THROUGH BOXES OF STUFF I HAD. I FOUND SOME PAPERWORK OF A CASE THAT DETECTIVE FUNG AND DETECTIVE ZARRILLI HAD WORKED ON BACK IN 1993. THE CASE INVOLVED THE MURDER OF MY BEST FRIEND ERIC CRUZ. I FOUND BOTH DETECTIVES NAMES AND TODAY SEARCHED FOR THEIR NAMES ONLINE. UNFORTUNATELY I CAME ACROSS THIS SITE AND WAS DEVASTATED TO KNOW MR. FUNG HAD PASSED AWAY. I WISH I COULD HAVE OPENED THESE BOXES EARLIER. ANYWAY I WANT TO TELL BOTH OF YOU FINE DETECTIVES THAT I WILL ALWAYS APPRECIATE BOTH OF YOU AND I ALWAYS BE IN DEBT. DETECTIVE MIKE ZARRILLI IF YOU HAPPEN TO READ THIS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO GIVE ME A CALL AT 646-342-5131. THANK YOU

Kenny was the best. He was always there when you needed him. I enjoyed having worked with with him, having meals together and fraternal organization ties. I enjoyed knowing his family (Wife-Michelle) and his son Kenny Jr., who I still see from time to time this date. May God Bless you as you left us way too soon.

Kenny and I were best friends growing up in Brooklyn. We both attended P.S.244 from 1st through 6th grade. Our families new each other well. I remember his father Danny sister Mabel and his older brother Danny Jr. Kenny and I always had each others back. I remember the first time Kenny had bagels and lox at my house and me having dinner at his place having turtle soup home made by his mom. Hanging out at " Danny's laundry on Church avenue was always a fun time. I truly miss you Kenny rest in peace. Gary.
