They declared: “As we come to terms with losing our Steve, we are utterly heartbroken and devastated. He was a devoted father and husband who still had so much to live for.
Steve was a good man who enjoyed spending time with his friends, family, and dogs.We are still coming to grips with the idea that Steve is no longer with us. He loved the simple things in life, like going fishing or for a bike ride. We, as a family, would like to express our gratitude to everyone for their support thus far and respectfully request that we be allowed space and privacy to process what has happened.
The Force’s Motor Patrols squad initiated an inquiry right away to determine the exact circumstances surrounding the crash.
