Stephen B. Dyess was born in Hattiesburg, Mississippi in 1949. His parents were Julian & Ruth Dyess and he had a brother Rodney. Stephen met his wife Cecilia in El Paso, TX where they married and had 3 children, John, Omar, and Monica. He graduated high school from Brooklyn High School in Brooklyn, Mississippi in 1968. Shortly after graduating high school Steve joined the United State Marine Corps in 1968.

While going to school and raising a family he joined the El Paso Police Department where he eventually retired after 20 years of serving the city of El Paso. While working for the police department he enjoyed many things that included vacationing with his family, starting his own business as an arms dealer, skydiving, photography, dog lover, watching movies, listening to music and collecting memorabilia. Stephen's journey was not the easiest, he worked hard in all aspects of his life, mostly for his family. Steve was a man made of courage, respect, loyalty, honesty and admiration in all he did. He was very grateful for his family and the rewards that came along with being a grandfather to his grandkids.
