Deacon Stephen D. McKimmie - Obituary


tephen D. McKimmie, “Steve”, “Stevie”, “Mac”, and “Deacon Steve”, lifetime resident of Prince George’s County, MD, passed away peacefully at his home at the age of 75. Steve was born in Washington, D.C. on August 19, 1947, to Steve and Marion McKimmie. Steve was a two tour Vietnam Army Veteran who received many medals and decorations for valor and was an award-winning sharpshooter, reaching Sergeant. After returning to civilian life, he proudly became a P.G. County Police Officer, following a family tradition of law enforcement. He loved to share colorful stories of his time with the P.G. County Police Department and the brotherhood he felt there. His proudest moments were serving in the Special Operation Division (SOD). He retired as Sergeant. Over his lifetime, he always felt close to the LORD and loved his Catholic faith. After his retirement from law enforcement, he pursued theological studies and became an ORDAINED Catholic Deacon on June 3, 2006. This was without a doubt his proudest accomplishment! He served the LORD faithfully at his home parish of St. Mary’s Piscataway Catholic Church and St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Baden, MD. Aside from his lifetime commitment to the protection of lives in the war, and as a policeman and the guardian and protection of souls as a Deacon, Steve loved history. He was a civil war expert. He loved the outdoors and sports that involved nature. He was a member of the Fraternal Order of the Police, Knights of Columbus, National Rifle Association, and St. Mary’s Piscataway Catholic Church. Steve was never married, but a devoted and loving son to his parents, Stephen, and Marion A. McKimmie, who predeceased him. He also suffered the loss of his eldest sister, Marion I. Walzel. Left to mourn this great loss and treasure his memory is his sister, Patricia A. Maddy (Willard Scott) of Gainesville, VA; his nieces, Lisa Lavery (Vince), Lake Frederick, VA, Kim Moyer (Mike), Blacksburg, VA; nephews, John Matthew DeGrasse (Sarah), Lewisburg, Ohio; great-nephews, Collin Lavery, Concord, NC, Nathaniel Moyer (Delena), Fairfax, VA, Andrew Moyer, Tyson’s Corner, VA, Zachary Moyer, Blacksburg, VA, Hunter DeGrasse, Lewisburg, VA; dear friend of Fr.
