Steve and I met as fellow nursing students at RVCC. He was one of the most ambitious people you'd ever meet. The early morning lectures were a challenge on those mornings after his long shifts but somehow he made it through...sometimes with a little nudge to wake him up:) I have memories of him unloading the kids from his giant suburban for a party at our house and the countless complimentary parkings he arranged for me at Newark airport. Steve was an awesome guy who always gave of himself and cared so much for others.

I climbed in honor of Stephen and carried his picture with me, stated his name and rang the bell for him today in Charlotte, NC at the 911 Memorial Stair Climb where we climbed 110 stories in honor of all those who gave the supreme sacrifice on 9-11-2001.

I knew Steve from Newark Airport when I flew with American Airlines ... then I soon & coincidentally met up again as a fellow Nursing student at RVCC. Steve was always mellow but always making us laugh... he is a great person, a bragging Dad, an awesome Nurse, and proud Police Officer. I hope his wife and children know how much he talked about them everyday... they were his life.

Officer Huczko appeared in court with me many times over the five years I served as a municipal prosecutor in Newark. What I recall with fondness is his sense of humor. He always had a great joke to tell. And he, as all of the officers we regularly worked with in the Newark Municipal Court, will be missed. I offer blessings to his family as that terrible day approaches when he was taken too soon and, as with the others, in the service of the public. God bless and keep him close.

I remember him on the job, I had just started working at Newark Airport for public safety in Feb 2001, and I scheduled cops for court at the time so I knew alot of them. Steve Huzko use to always speak with a smile and never did I have one moment that wasn't pleasant with Steve.

Bless him and his family.

You are not and will never be forgotten. You and the other brothers we lost that day are HEROES and will be remembered forever! Rest high on the streets of Heaven!

Dear Steve:
Through all the mayhem and carnage of that fateful day, somehow you and all the rest, managed to save some 25,000 people from certain death. That is a feat and a proud accomplishment that cannot be equalled. Thank you for the determination and the sacrifice you gave so willingly, and in so doing, have changed the opinions people have had of the police forever.
I can't imagine the horror of what you saw and went through. I can't imagine the pain and loneliness your family now faces. But I can imagine how proud your family is to have a hero in their bloodlines. What most folks in this country don't know about our profession is, just how sincere and dedicated we are to protecting them from the wolf when it comes to door. When that happens, our fellow countrymen can only turn to the only constant that they have...the police.
To your Mom who bore you, we salute her, too. For without her pain and suffering to bring you into this world, well, many more innocent lives would have been lost. To your surviving family members, your sacrifice has made them part of us too. They may not feel it, or know it, but they are.
Godspeed, and until we meet in a place God has set aside for all of us who wear a badge, and badge of honor, rest easy, the blue line has held. My saying: "Above all else, honor". Amen
