Steve, I will never forget you. I pray for you and think of you often. Sometimes I can feel your presence.

Steve, thinking of you tonight and missing you. One day I will see you again. Even though it’s been 26 years, I remember that night as if it were yesterday. I will always continue my prayers for you and check in on your mom and brother. I miss you and will never forget.

Dear Steve,
Today we remember you on your birthday like we have every year...We brought our Z28 out for a drive and to a Show and Shine in loving memory of you...It seems like yesterday and forever since you were taken from us. Wyatt might not have ever had the opportunity to have you in his life physically (since you were killed before he was born), but your spirit and love of life and us lives on within him and me...
You are loved and missed as much today as you were the night you were killed...

Well, Steve, it's been 25 years since you've been gone and you never leave my mind. We grew up side by side since we were toddlers. You were like a brother to me and we spent so much time together. I know you always wanted to be a police officer and the only thing that brings me peace is that you died doing what you loved. I look at the clock tonight and think of that horrible night, rushing to the hospital, thinking of your mom. You read about things like this happening, but you never think this will happen to someone you know and love. You were strong, silent, sensitive and always thought of others. Until we meet again, you will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Brenda

After 25 years it still seems like a bad dream. How can the most gifted street cop to ever work Lynwood/Century Station be gone. The impact you left on all your partners can never be overstated. Today some of your old friends and partner will attend PM briefing to try and paint a picture of who Deputy Steve Blair was. Your actions helped shape our careers. We are all eternally grateful for you. God Speed my friend.

Steve (251 Eddie) it’s hard to believe you’ve been gone for 25 years.

I think about you often! You were truly one of the great ones and you were taken away from us way to soon.

May you continue to REST IN PEACE and continue to watch over all of us.

Thank you for your sacrifice and continued prayers for your family.
Miss you Brother!

24 long years Steve. I will never forget hearing the call over the air. I was Watch Deputy. Coordinating responding units. Hearing the traffic. Knowing it wasn't good. Focusing on doing the best for the Ones responding. Coordinating everything. Damn, that night really sucked. You were the best. Your legacy lives on. The work never ends. 251e did not die, you just changed uniforms. I know you are not resting, but I pray you are at peace. Keep and eye on your Sons. Love you Brother.

Steve, I always remember the date you were murdered it was Mother's Day weekend May 12, 1995. I remember thinking how horrible it would be for your Mom. So today May 12, 2019, I am praying for your Mom and all Moms who no longer have their child including me. Until we meet again in Heaven.

It’s been over 33 years since we all graduated together, time has gone by too fast. Most of us from Class 229 have retired, although some are still hanging on. I have no doubt that you would have aspired to greatness within LASD if you weren’t taken from us.

Rest well brother.
