GARREN, Steven Dale
GARREN, Steven Dale 53, lovingly known to many as 'Big Daddy,' was called to his eternal home by his Savior, Jesus Christ, on December 1, 2012. Steve was born in Lynwood, Calif., and grew up in Pico Rivera and Whittier. He served in the United States Coast Guard from 1978 to 1982. He moved to Lancaster in 1987. Steve served as a Deputy Sheriff for Los Angeles County for 29 years. Steve lived his life according to one of his favorite scripture passages, 'Love one another.' Nothing was more important to him than to be a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle or friend. Steve had the uncommon ability to make the common things in life extraordinary. People who came in contact with Steve never walked away the same, whether touched by his quirky humor, his enduring patience, his wise counsel, or his generous hospitality. Steve is lovingly remembered by his wife Nancy, son Brian, daughter Rebecca and her husband Trey Moylan, and step-daughter Simona Grasman; three grandchildren, Cash, Candice and Coby Moylan; mother Virginia Garren, mother-in-law Wilma Grasman, sisters, Lisa Davidson Morse, and Julie Yaccino and mother of his children Geraldine Bechard. He was preceded to Glory by his father, Leonard Garren. Steve was also a loving brother-in-law and uncle.
