When I learned of Steve’s death, and Jack’s, that night, I cried. I’d known both men for their entire careers. Their deaths were simply an incredible tragedy, and they really hurt. Steve was the most wonderful kind of person I could ever hope to meet in life. The thing I remember most about him was his hyper desire to learn things about police work. When I was a CSI detective and made calls where Steve was present, he would always engaged me in conversation, asking questions about what I was doing at the scene. He was so eager to learn everything that he could about anything related to his employment.

What tremendous talent died that night. I shall never forget either man.

Walk well, my Brothers.
