STATE HOUSE – The following is a statement from Senate President Dominick J. Ruggerio (D-Dist. 4, North Providence, Providence) on the passing of Eugene McCaffrey this morning:

“Eugene McCaffrey was dedicated to his country, public service and the law, but above all that he was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He gave selflessly of himself to his community, through military service, public service and his distinguished legal career. The work ethic and commitment to service he modeled is as an example for us all, as is the love and devotion he had for his family. The thoughts and prayers of the entire Senate family are with the McCaffrey family during this difficult time.”

Eugene McCaffrey was a former state representative, state senator and mayor of Warwick. He was the father of Senate Majority Leader Michael J. McCaffrey (D-Dist. 29, Warwick).
