Officer Michael Lug

Officer Lug was truly dedicated to his job as a Police Officer and served it well. Mike was a Master Instructor where he taught several police topics at the Orange County Police Academy. Mike was also very involved in Orange County “STOP DWI” training and awareness throughout the County.

As well as being a Police Officer Mike was also a Teacher in the Cornwall Central School District for over 40 years. Mike was excellent at his craft and was well known and respected in the Community for his work as a teacher. All you had to do was mention Mike's name within the community and someone would mention that they either had Mike as a teacher or knew someone that had Mike as a teacher.

Mike leaves behind his wife Jean, son’s Jeremy and Matthew and two grandsons.
