Steve and Beth settled in Madison, WI when they decided to begin having a family. Steve was hired by the Madison Police Dept. in 1991. There he achieved the rank of sergeant. He impacted many lives thereby sharing his personal experience with mental health struggles. He helped to develop specific training on trauma, stress, and depression for officers in many departments. He retired in 2012. Then he became the Volunteer Coordinator for the AIDS Network in Madison.

The most important people in Steve’s life were his sons, Jacob Beavers (Madison) and Noah Beavers (Los Angeles). Pride in his sons could be read on his face!

Karen Beavers (Pasadena, CA) is Steve’s last relative. Steve also leaves behind Jason Harwood (Madison) his loving partner of many years.
