Steven Timothy Cagle was born April 15, 1960, at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C. He is the sixth and youngest child of George and Juanita Cagle. As a baby, he went with his family when his father was transferred to Japan, returning to the United States when he was four years old. After spending a few years in New York, Steven moved again with his family to Novato in 1967 when his father transferred to Hamilton Air Force Base.
Steven was a student of the Novato school district, where he attended Rancho Elementary, Hill Junior High, and finally Novato High School. While at Novato High School, Steve played on the basketball team and graduated in 1978. Going on to San Francisco State, Steve graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics in 1980. While at San Francisco State, he met and married his then-wife, Sharon, in 1982. They moved to Honolulu where they had their son, Shohan, before returning to California. Steve was a very involved father, participating in homeschooling and involving the family in activities such as Kuk Sool martial arts, where he earned his black belt.
Steven pursued his dream career of becoming a firefighter for the City of San Rosa. He began his career in April 1992. On February 2, 2001, he rose to the rank of Fire Captain. While working for Santa Rosa Fire Department, he also obtained his Master’s Degree in Public Administration at Golden Gate University in 2002. Along the way, he made great friends in the fire department and beyond.
Steve is survived by his son Shohan, daughter- in- law Jennifer, and granddaughter Isla. His surviving mother Betsy and siblings Yvonne, Michele, Sherli, and George miss him greatly, and will always remember the happiness of Steven’s personality that graced us all.

Steven had the capacity to make anyone feel calm and heard within his quiet energy. He was super kind, super gentle, and super easy going. He was a loving father and a generous friend. I feel honored to have known him. I know that he is among angels looking down with a protective gaze to those he loves. Amen, Toni Barca
