BROCKMAN
brockmanSteve was born June 2, 1955 in Enid, Oklahoma to George and Martha Brockman. After spending a portion of his childhood in Enid, Oklahoma, and Chula Vista, California the family moved to Texas and resided in Deer Park.
He attended Deer Park High School, and married his high school sweetheart Denise Murray on November 22, 1973. Steve worked for Kinder Morgan (Formerly known as GATX) Emergency Response Team Unit. He was one of the fire fighters that went to locations around the Ship channel when their Unit was called on to help. Every year Steve went to Fire School in College Station. He then became an instructor, training classes for surrounding companies. When Fire Classes were competed without fail Steve would bring Kolaches from College Station as a treat to the family. Steve’s 30-year career was with Kinder Morgan/GATX, until he retired in 2013. Steve made many friends that he remained close to all those years. Steve had a very kind, generous heart and would help anyone, anyway he could. All you had to do is say, “I was looking for something like that” and he would always say, “If you need it take it!” Steve enjoyed fishing, being outdoors. He loved spending time with his Grandchildren in Deer Park and in the Country at his son’s house. When family and friends would be cooking out, playing washers, cards and other games Steve would be there. He never met a dog that he didn’t like, he also liked collecting all known tools to man! If you needed a tool most likely Steve would have it. Steve is preceded in death by his Mother Martha Ann Brockman, his Grandparents, several Aunts, Uncles and loved ones. Steve is survived by his father George W. Brockman of Hemphill, Texas.; Children Leah Michelle Brockman, Brandon Bruce and wife Ashley Sada Brockman, and Grandchildren Emily Ann Brockman, Lily Renee Brockman, and Dillon Max Brockman; Brothers: Dale and wife Linda Brockman; Joe and wife Beverly Brockman; Sister Julie and husband Tim Rawls; Aunts: Ethel Brockman; Rita Milligan, many Nieces, Nephews, and Cousins and Ex-wife Denise Brockman.
