Steven “Steve” McCann was a beloved father, son, and brother born on July 8, 1973, in San Jose, California. He was very active in his teenage years with sports, work, and other shenanigans. He was very passionate about basketball and was captain of his basketball team at John H. Francis Polytechnic High School in Pacoima, California. After graduating, Steve enlisted in the Navy and worked in the engine room on the carrier. He played for the Navy’s basketball team in Japan and earned his “shellback” title! Steve traveled all over the world, and his job in the engine room sparked his interest to become a firefighter.

Steve graduated from Oxnard Fire Academy and got hired by LACoFD in 2005. He loved everything about the job. He took pride in his job and loved sharing his stories from the station. He never settled for mediocrity and would go above and beyond to help everyone that crossed his path. As much as he joked around with his crew and came off as a “know-it-all,” he was very protective of his crew, which he considered family. He was a very loyal and loving person throughout his career. He served 16 years in the fire department, working the majority of his career in El Monte, California.

Steve was very adventurous and loved spending time outdoors. He enjoyed traveling to new places, but he also found comfort in previous places he had visited, which included Cabo, Ireland, and many Vegas trips. During his trips, he would go scuba diving, hike, eat the delicious local cuisine, bar hop, and bring back lots of cultural knick-knacks for his loved ones. He believed he was invincible, and that mindset made him fearless. He was never scared to try new things and step out of his comfort zone.

Steven was a leader and protector. He leaves behind three daughters, a grandson, a granddaughter, and many friends who continue to be guided and protected by his spirit in their walks of life.
