Steve Bogard

Steve Bogard

Steven Neil Bogard

July 28, 1949 ~ November 10, 1997

Steven Neil Bogard, age 48, born July 28, 1949, in Tucson, ended life on November 10, 1997, in Pinal County, Arizona.  He is survived by his loving sons, Seth Davis Bogard (17) and Jeremy Nelson Bogard (20); his wife and best friend of 33 years, Janet Bruce Davis; and his very dear brother, Ronald E. Bogard.  He is also survived by brother Richard J. Bogard (Peggy) of Munds Park; niece, Sharon Coffman and her children, Lacy and Joshua of Chandler; cousins, Linda and Toni Taylor of Tucson, and Tom and Joel Keck of Everett, Washington; and in-laws, Lillian S. Davis, Milton Davis, Jr., Dorothy Davis and Jody Fisher, Elizabeth and Eliana Davis, and Tony Davis and his family.  Steve left behind many other relatives and close friends.

Steve began practicing civil and criminal law in Tucson in 1975.  A respected member of the Arizona Bar, he focused his practice on Elder Law, Wills, Probate and Estates.  His brother Ronald Bogard recently moved to Tucson to join Steve in the practice of law.

Steve's spirit was reflected in his tremendous love and caring of countless people.  His love of life was renewed by journeys into the canyons, mountains, and desert regions of Arizona with family and friends.

Published in the Arizona Daily Star, Sunday, November 16, 1997.

He greatly loved his family; he was a wonderful father and a dear friend to many.  He is greatly missed.  A Memorial Service for Steve will be held on Tuesday, November 18, at 4:00 p.m. at the Arizona Inn, 2200 E. Elm Street, Tucson.  A memorial donation may be made in Steve's name to the Pima Council on Aging, 5055 E. Broadway, Suite C-104, Tucson, AZ  85711.

Steve suffered from bi-polar disorder and took his life during a depressive cycle in 1997.  He is survived by 2 sons and 2 grandchildren.  He was married to Janet Davis for 28 1/2 years until the time of his death.

My best friend for many many years.  Generous and kind to a fault.

I shared many parts of middle school and high school, but perhaps my dearest memory of him is that he invited me to a party at his house in middle school.  I was isolated by being from Julia Keen but being put into the honors classes with kids from Robison and Hughes.  They all knew each other, and I rarely saw my Keen friends (who didn't have big houses for parties).  Steve, with his quiet friendliness helped make me feel like I belonged.  Thanks, Steve.

Thanks for your words, Ron and Richard.  Steve was a great husband and father and he is still sorely missed after almost 20 years.  I wish he could know his grandchildren...they are wonderful!
