I remember Steve from his days on Lpne Jack Mo. We got on the bus together at the same stop, he was always a jokester. He was a great neighbor & friend. Steve always had a smile on his face & you could count on him for a good laugh.
My heart goes out to his parents & sister; I'm so sorry for what you have endured in these last 5 months.. to his wife & children I never met you but I know you were wonderful family.. my prayers go out to you during this time.
May God Bless each one of you, carry on his memory like he would want you to.

I met Steve several times in passing downtown having no idea I worked with his wife at the time. He was always so cool to me and was a really awesome guy. I didn't know him well but he was one of my favorite police officers in Phoenix; always kind and always smiling. I'll miss this dude. Shuree keep your head up, I love you to death and I'm so sorry for your loss. Reach out if you need anything. Rest in complete peace Steve.

Steve and I worked together on the Police Department and Steve was always a pleasure to have around. One day, Steve and I ran into one another by accident at an ATM in Aspen Colorado. I believe Steve is in Heaven, enjoying Aspen.

My thoughts and prayers are with Steve’s family. I had the honor and privilege to have worked with Steve on the Southside Walking Beat. He was a top cop and one of Phoenix PD ‘s Best! RIP young Warrior!

My mother was Lisa, Steve’s oldest sister. I was born in 1982. Steve was just kid at the time, which was great for me. When we would visit Maryland or Arizona, I got the goofball, young, and carefree Steve. Pack me around with a wig on his head Steve. Give me stuff I shouldn’t have Steve. The Steve before he knew better and just loved to cause my mom a fit. As he aged, so did I and I could respect the man he became. An amazing husband and father. An officer and friend to the community he lived in. He radiated optimism, chose good over evil, and strength over sadness. Beer above it all! I will miss you my Uncle, god speed.

As Steve's sister, I have had the pleasure of knowing him my whole life. He is one of a kind. He always had a sense of humor his whole life and continued that until he took his last breath. He always made sure to say "Thank You" to each and everyone who came to visit him. To my sister Shuree, THANK YOU for being his best friend, soulmate and best wife ever. You have endured a lot this last year and always told me it was your privilege to take care of him. You truly are AMAZING and I love you to the moon and back. RIP brother!!
