His 29-year-old daughter Jessica was killed in Redlands on January 22, 2022, along with her boyfriend, Nicholas, due to fentanyl poisoning. Steve lives in Highland, California, with his wife, Cheri, and their five-year-old granddaughter, Elara. He and other bereaved parents formed V.O.I.D., “Victims of Illicit Drugs,” as a California non-profit corporation and dedicate their efforts to education and awareness of this fentanyl scourge confronting our society.

June 6, 2022 Luncheon Speakers - Our guests from the Fontana Police Department were those members from the Internet Crime Division. "Special" guest was Officer K9 "Goose," a black Labrador Retriever and his handler Officer Mark Wyrick who were instrumental in finding a missing person who was in distress back in September 2021. After "Goose" tracked a scent for more than two miles through yards and open fields, officers located the autistic18-year-old woman in the back seat of a parked vehicle. The woman had entered the unlocked vehicle to get out of the heat and was suffering from heat exhaustion when found. It was unknown how long she had been sitting inside the vehicle and the outcome could of been drastically different if not found.  She was treated by the San Bernardino County Fire/medics and safely returned to her family.
