I am just learning of Steve's passing. I worked with him for 25 years at DANY. I used to love to listen to his stories about the Cossacks at the Moscow Circus and we would often trade phrases in broken Russian. He was a good partner and one could always depend on him. May the Lord hold him in the palm of his had.

My condolences to the family. I worked with Steve in the Narcotics Division, Homicide Squad, and the New York County District Attorney's Office. He was a hard worker and dedicated detective. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

I worked with Steve many years in the Homicide Investigation Unit. He was an incredibly hard worker who would work 24 hours a day if he could. He was a dogged investigator who would never give up. He had the respect of all who came in contact with him; police, ADAs, witnesses and even defense counsel. He played a major role in the Unit's many successes that cleaned up whole neighborhoods.
He always had great stories, whether it was the Westies investigation or his days with the Russian circus.
He will be missed by all that came into contact with him!

Dear Marlene,
Steve and I worked together in Narcotics District 6 in the early 70's.
NYPD has produced no finer Detective either before his tenure or after.
More than that I considered him a loyal friend. Steve is gone but I am a better, more
fortunate man for having known him and counted him as a friend.
May God Bless you Steve. John Kelly (Former Sgt. ND6)

I first started working with Steve in 1993 , I was a cop in the 9th Precinct in the East Village and he was a Investigator for the Homicide Unit of the Manhattan DAs Office. We worked together on 7 Major Investigations that had a direct result in cleaning up the Lower East Side of the violent drug gangs that ran those streets. I learned so much from him about Investigating Narcotics Conspiracies , he was the Best Narco Detective that I ever worked with in 20 years in the NYPD. My sincere condolences to the Mshar family,
Scotty Prendergast
