Trooper Kevin J. Mallon, 24, was killed on March 20, 1990 in a fatal accident on Delaware Route 16, west of Milton. Flags at State Police barracks were flown at half-staff in honor of the trooper who died when his patrol vehicle ran off the road and struck a tree. Trooper Mallon was enroute to an alarm at a photography studio at the time of his death. A fellow officer remarked that, "Kevin, in the short period of time he was with the troop, had developed a lot of friends and was seen as a bright and energetic person with an excellent future ahead of him… (His death) is a tragedy that will be with us for a long time…"


Kevin Mallon was born on April 25, 1965 in Meadowbrook, Pennsylvania to Edward and Betty Mallon. He was a graduate of Bishop Shanahan High School Class of 1983 and Kutztown University, receiving a B.S. in Criminal Justice in 1987. Trooper Mallon was employed at the Chester County Juvenile Detention Center until his appointment to the Delaware State Police in July, 1989.

Kevin enjoyed all sports and especially liked the Philadelphia Eagles.

Trooper Kevin John Mallon was laid to rest, on a snowy afternoon, March 24, 1990, in the cemetery at St. Thomas The Apostle, Glen Mills, Pennsylvania. Hundreds of troopers from many states attended his funeral to pay their respects, many of them standing outside in the snow so that other mourners could huddle in the small church for the service.

Kevin is deeply missed but his mother, Betty, stepfather, Richard, and his brother and sister, Ed and Kathleen.
