Reflections for Sheriff Charles Edward Stevens, Jr.

This is my Uncle Charles❣️ I remember when he died we lived in Texas & my parents (Harry & Cherry Stevens) went back for his funeral. I remember how sad they were. I don’t remember a lot of this but my Mom & Aunt Charlotte told me us kids used to play in the jail cells. Lol.
My uncle was a hero & wonderful man!

It makes me both happy and sad to see the names and circumstances relating to the loss of the many LEOs. I'm happy to see them honored for their sacrifice yet I'm sad to know that they lost their lives. Charles was my Great Uncle and was killed nearly 6 years before I was born, but I'm proud to say that my Grand dad's brother died in an effort to protect other. I am also proud that I was able to find the details relating to his death so that he is able to be included on this wonderful tribute site.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace

My Dad is Charles younger brother. I was only 10 when he was killed. I remember how devistated our family was when Uncle Charles was killed. My dad, Donald Stevens looked up to Charles. It was a difficult time because his other brother Lewis died a short time before Charles and shortly after is oldest brother Bill died. Charles was well respected by all in the county. His loss is still felt. Julie McLaughlin
