My memory of Lt. Steven was as a child. Steve lived across the street and a couple of houses to the left. He was many years older, so naturally his life was lived differently. This said, he was gentle and kind with us kids. He even played a little ball in the street with us a couple of times :-) My dad, Anthony, always liked the nice hard working young man. May perpetual light shine upon him. And may peace be with those who feel sad at Steve's passing.
steven is and will always be one of the "119" crew, we had good times in the ol school yard. rest in peace steve, remembering: Chris Jill

L.T Steven .J. Bates.
I grew up with Steve in Glendale Queens in the 70's. A very kind hearted person. funny and soft spoken as I remember him. My heart is in sorrow but Steve did what his soul calls for ...to save lives.
