Steve Bonny of Moore, Oklahoma died unexpectedly on December 12, 2021. His family was shocked and deeply saddened. Robert Steven Bonny was born on September 15, 1950 to Bob C. and Geraldine Bonny. He attended Newcastle High School where he was passionate about cars, mainly corvettes and Harley motorcycles. After graduating high school he enlisted into the United States Air Force as Security Police. During his enlistment he was sent to Danang Air Force Base in Vietnam where he fought in the Vietnam War for over three years. After completing his enlistment he then hired on with the Oklahoma City Police Department at the young age of 21 years old. He worked on patrol and then moved on to Special Projects (Narcotic Enforcement). He worked in Oklahoma City Homicide and eventually moved back to narcotics where that was his passion. He assisted the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office, the Oklahoma Drug Enforcement Administration, FBI, ATF, OBNDD, United States Marshal Service, multiple sheriff’s offices in numerous counties and the US Postal Service. He retired from Oklahoma City Police Department after 20 years of service and then turned around and retired after 13 years of service with the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office, and helped originate the Cleveland County District 21 Task Force. Those who knew Steve, knew that he was a man’s man, with a no bullshit mentality when it came to his work. You either liked Steve or you didn’t, there was no in between. He was a misunderstood soul. His family on the other hand saw his vulnerable side, which was only on occasion. He had an immense passion for Harley Davidson motorcycles, and was an avid Vietnam Vet supporter but most of all he loved working on corvettes and doing paint and body work, alongside his best friend, Ralph Howell. He immensely loved and respected his police family and that was his second family. He loved helping Johnny Hargrave at Johnny’s shop, Bimmers and Benz in Moore, OK and visiting with Marvin and the gang (while no work got done). He expressed that he wanted his son, Chris Bonny of Moore, OK, to follow in his footsteps. Chris is now employed for the Oklahoma Highway Patrol as a trooper.
