Steve Bastidas Favela

Officer Steve Favela succumbed to injuries sustained five days earlier in a motorcycle accident on O'Malley Boulevard, at Hickam Air Force Base, while escorting the motorcade of President George W. Bush.

The motorcade passed over a rain-slicked section of pavement, causing Officer Favela and two other motor officers to go into a slide. Officer Favela suffered severe internal injuries as a result of the incident and remained in critical condition until succumbing to his injuries. The other two officers sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Officer Favela, a U.S. Army veteran, had served with the Honolulu Police Department for 8 years. He also served for 6 1/2 years with the Hawaii Air National Guard, more than 3 years with the Coast Guard Reserve, and received a National Defense Service Medal.

He is survived by his wife, daughter, and three sons.
