It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, an FXX network sitcom, paid a quiet tribute to a fallen New Jersey State Trooper by displaying his photo behind the bar and casting family members for an episode, the New Jersey State Police said Friday.

The NJ State Police said in Facebook posting Friday, a photo of Trooper Sean Cullen is seen behind the bar at Paddy’s Pub in episode nine of season 12, “A Cricket’s Tale.” The posting ended with the hashtag: #GoneButNeverForgotten.

Cullen, 31 at the time of his death, was killed in March last year after a 22-year-old motorist struck the trooper while he investigated a crash on Interstate 295 in West Deptford.

CBS Philly reports Cullen emigrated to the U.S. from Ireland and was a 1998 graduate of Cinnaminson High School. He enlisted in the New Jersey State Police in 2014, as a member of the 154th Recruit Class. He was assigned to Troop “A” where he served at both Bunea Vista and Bellmawr Stations.

Cullen is survived by his fiancé, 9-month-old son, mother, father, two brothers and a sister.

NJ State police show their gratitude toward the show’s writers saying, “Well, played ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,’ well played.”

According to IMdb, the show features several friends at Paddy’s Pub, a neighborhood bar in Philadelphia, and how they try to find their way in a world of work and relationships.
