Description / Bio:
Paul "Axe" Laszczynski
Paul joined the North Jersey Chapter in 1996. He was a police officer with the Port Authority of NY/NJ PD. He was a member of the department's Emergency Services Unit and was no stranger to hazardous situations, notably having carried a handicapped man down over 70 flights of stairs during the 1993 bombing at the World Trade Center. A big, good-looking guy who took great pride in maintaining a sharp appearance, it was often said that Paul never met a camera he didn't like. Paul loved riding his Harley, as well as the brotherhood of the club. He was a solid friend and a formidable ally whose nickname derived from his tendency to cut quickly through all the drama and nonsense of a situation and get to the essentials of the problem.
On September 11, 2001, Paul was lost in the line of duty during the attacks on the World Trade Center.

John "Chippendale" Samra
John joined the North Jersey Chapter in 2000. He was a motorcycle officer with the Clifton PD Traffic Division. An experienced "wheel man", he was regarded by most as one of the most capable riders in the chapter. In his off-duty time, John volunteered with special needs children in the community as well as the Special Olympics, and was dedicated health and personal fitness. This commitment has led to a park, a gym, and a 5K scholarship run being dedicated in his memory. Easy-going and amiable, John was rarely seen without a smile, yet he still maintained a high level of professionalism and command presence in what most of us regard as one of the best jobs in the world. Away from the job, John loved the outdoors, and would often find any excuse to lose his shirt, as his nickname suggests.
On November 21, 2003, John was lost in the line of duty when his motorcycle was struck by a car that he was attempting to intercept after the driver fled from a motor vehicle stop.

Dexter "Preacher" Taylor
Dexter joined the North Jersey Chapter in 1996. He was a court officer with the New York City Unified Court System. During that time, he served as a coordinator for their Employee Assistance Program, then as an instructor for the Court Officers' Academy. In addition to riding his Harley, Dexter enjoyed sports and all types of physical activity, and had been a professional singer before joining the court system. One of the fondest memories of the chapter members who knew him was when he would join the band at our annual charity event for a sizzling rendition of his signature song, "Mustang Sally". A deeply spiritual man who was devoted to his family and his church, Dexter held in his heart a wish for the well-being of all of his fellow members, which gave rise to his nickname.
On April 16, 2004, Dexter succumbed to an extended battle with cancer, which he fought with all of the passion that characterized his life.

Ron "RJ" Mehring
RJ was President of the York Chapter of the RPMC. He began his career with the City of York, PA in 1976 as a civilian Youth Service Aid in the Police Department's Community Services Division, and was appointed as a Police Officer in 1978. During his training, he received high awards for shooting and physical fitness.
RJ served with the Mounted Unit, and was a founding member of the department's Quick Response Team. As Police Officer First Class, he trained new officers, and was an outstanding firearms instructor and armorer. In 1991, he was promoted to Sergeant and was a founding member and supervisor of the department's Community Policing Unit, as well as training and patrolling with the Bicycle Unit.
Without a doubt, RJ's greatest passion both on and off the job was his love of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. He is credited with revitalizing the department's Motorcycle Unit, which had been inactive for years, supervising maintenance and training of the unit, of which he was extremely proud. During his career, he received numerous awards, including Letters of Commendation, Chief's Commendations, and the Award of Merit.
On December 4, 2007 RJ lost his courageous battle with cancer. He was our friend and our brother, and we miss him dearly.
