After a short session Friday, The Massachusetts Senate adjourned in memory of Pat Schena, the former Groveland building inspector, who was found murdered June 21 inside his home.

Senate Minority Leader Bruce E. Tarr introduced the order to adjourn in Schena’s memory. Tarr’s district includes Groveland.

Born in Haverhill, Schena served six years in the Army reserves and owned Pat Schena Quality Carpenter and Builder and constructed homes across the state for more than 40 years. He worked as Groveland’s building inspector and zoning enforcement officer for 36 years.
