Veteran NYPD Detective Stanley Dash Dies from Coronavirus at 57

The NYPD has lost another detective to coronavirus.

Det. Stanley Dash, 57, a veteran detective assigned to the 6th Precinct Squad in the West Village, died Saturday from COVID-19, Commissioner Dermot Shea announced on Twitter.

Dash, a married father of two, was a member of the force for 21 years.

“He was a fun-loving guy,” Dash’s former partner recalled. “Definitely a workaholic. He loved to party. He loved the job. He was a good father and a good husband. He was a very funny guy, that’s what I loved about him. A great partner in the squad.”

The partner, who didn’t want to give his name, recalled Dash had a mischievous side.

“He loved to lie about his age,” the former partner said, laughing. “He would always say he was 10 years younger, even to the job. Everyone there thought he was 10 years younger. He changed his card, he was born 63 and he changed it to 73 so even the bosses thought he was younger. He would save bottles in his desk. You would open his desk drawer and it would be full of cans and bottles. Great guy.”

Another source called Dash “a great guy,” adding, “He was a good cop and had a great personality.
