John DiNapoli Memorial Golf tournament held at Westfield's East Mountain Country Club

WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Over the last two decades, the John DiNapoli Memorial Golf tournament has been held at Westfield's East Mountain Country Club. It has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Holyoke youth projects.

Sergeant DiNapoli's daughter Jobeth told 22News, helping young people was dear to her father's heart.

"He was like a big kid himself and he loved the kids of Holyoke," said Jobeth. "He used to work out at one of the community policing stations. I would go to visit and he would be surrounded by kids."

Sgt. John DiNapoli was shot and killed in the line of duty in 1999 just days before Christmas.

At Monday's memorial fundraiser, there was a display of the names of all Massachusetts police officers killed in the line of duty.
