Suddenly at Brampton Civic Hospital on Tuesday, November 28, 2023, Stephen Brigden of Inglewood, Ontario, passed away at the age of 70 years. He was the beloved husband for 50 years of Noreen, loving father of Jeff and his wife Lindsay, Amy and her husband Brandon Markoff; proud grandfather of Conlan and Camden Brigden, Mason and Maverick Markoff; and dear brother of Robert and his wife Karen Brigden.
Steve was a retired Detective Sergeant with Peel Regional Police where he spent most of his career at 21 Division as a Constable in the Uniform Bureau, in the Criminal Investigation Bureau and as the Sergeant in Youth Bureau. He transferred as the Staff Sergeant in the Records Bureau at Headquarters for several years before returning to 21 Division as a Detective Sergeant, where he was a mentor to many young officers. Steve retired from 21 Division as one of the longest serving officers at the Division.
Steve was proud to have volunteered coaching softball and with Associated Youth Services of Peel, and most recently at Bethell Hospice.
A celebration of life will be held at a future date. As expressions of sympathy, donations to Bethell Hospice in Inglewood (www.bethellhospice.org) would be appreciated by the family.
