Dozens of friends, family and former colleagues of slain Woburn Police Officer Jack Maguire gathered for a candle light vigil in the Kohl’s parking lot Thursday evening on the spot where Jack lost his life three years to the day.

A procession of Woburn Police cruisers traveled down Washington Street with lights flashing, as they have for the past two years. The procession drove into the Jack Maguire Post Office and past the gathering of shivering bodies glowing by the flickering candles quietly honoring the man they knew and loved.

Maguire’s wife Desire, friend Sue Schneider Sullivan and his brother Chuck Maguire were surrounded by on and off duty police officers on the spot where Maguire lost his life.

“Tonight kind of reminds us of that night with the snow and the cold,” Maguire’s brother Chuck told the gatherers referencing the nigh Jack was shot and killed.

“We really miss Jack, and it’s a great tribute, everyone remembers Jack …” he said choking up. “It’s really important to us, thank you everybody for coming.”

On December 26, 2010, Officer Maguire responded to robbery at the Kohls department store where he was met by Dominic Cinelli, a man who had been given three life sentences and was out on parole. Cinelli shot Maguire after robbing the jewelry department at Kohls. Before Maguire succumbed to his injuries he managed to fire at Cinelli and killing the man who would become his murderer.
