Although I did not personally know Deputy Cox, I had the opportunity to work for the King County Sheriff's Office as a Deputy Sheriff. I have heard what kind of deputy he was from other deputies that had worked with him. My heart goes out to the family and friends of Deputy Cox as well as the King County Sheriff's Office to have to deal with yet another tragic shooting incident that took a great person and deputy from us.

Lord I ask for courage

Courage to face and
Conquer my own fears...

Courage to take me
Where others will not go...

I ask for strength

Strength of body to protect others
And strength of spirit to lead others...

I ask for dedication

Dedication to my job, to do it well
Dedication to my community
To keep it safe...

Give me Lord, concern
For others who trust me
And compassion for those who need me...

And please Lord

Through it all
Be at my side...

God Bless you for making the ultimate sacrifice.

I HATE that we are going thru this again. This has been
a horrible year for law enforcement in King County with
3 deaths in 4 months. My blood is at the boiling point.
I am deeply grieved over your young child who just turned 1 in Oct. How unfair that you were robbed of that
relationship and now he grows up without his Dad. You had so much left to give and experience, but you filled your 46 years with such dedicated service and
accomplished so much! My heart goes out to your families, both at home and work. God bless each and every one of them! The days and nites will be difficult to endure for a long time to come. Trust Jesus Christ to hold you in the palm of His hand and to see you thru. When you can't walk, He will carry you.

Steve,

As I got up early yesterday morning, I was watching the news on tv when they had a breaking story. It was about you! The news said you were still fighting at HMC...... then, within minutes my cell and nextel went off. I was told you were gone. Your brothers from your extended family (SPD, KCSO etc.) began calling. I was at a total loss. Although I never worked with you, I knew of your reputation..........one that was of a deputy who not only did his job well above the standards, but one who after graduating from the local Evergreen High School, became a King County prosecutor, resigned and fulfilled your dream of "Making a Difference" by becoming a King County Sheriff's Deputy. You returned to your old neighborhood to work at the White Center storefront, live in the same area with your family and volunteered numerous hours to the same community to try and make a difference. You Steve, really did make a difference to and a very positive impact on the citizens of White Center. You not only were the one the residents could count on, but you deeply cared for their well being by volunteering at many, many programs and projects. You led by example.........and a GREAT one at that!

Steve, you will not be missed, because in the hearts and minds of the residents of White Center and your fellow brothers and sisters in law enforcement, you will always be there for all of us.

Though I did not know you, my wife informed me that you and her were academy mates and shared with me the type of person you are and your memory will continue to be. It is now that you watch over us. You maybe gone, but you will not be forgotten.
