Steven F. Ross, 74, of Kingston died Monday, January 20th, 2020 at HealthAlliance Hospital, Broadway Campus following a battle with cancer.

He was born in Bronx, NY on August 9th, 1945, a son of the late Benjamin and Hope (Buchler) Rosenstein Alcon.

Steve was a veteran of the US Air Force serving during the Vietnam war. Following his honorable discharge in the late 60's, he served as a deputy sheriff with the Ulster Co. Sheriff's Office, and then joined the Kingston City Police Dept as a patrolman. He briefly moved to Florida, returning to the Hudson Valley to work for the NYS Dept of Corrections. Following his retirement from NYS Corrections, he served as a corrections officer (1994-2004) and then as a security officer for over 15 years with the Ulster County Sheriff's Office, assigned to the Probation Dept.

Steve loved fishing and was an avid NY Yankee fan and a recent Denver Broncos fan.

He is survived by one sister, Lori (Alcon) Bailey, and her husband David, and his beloved niece and nephew, Victoria and Matthew Bailey, all of Colorado, and many dear friends.

Steve was predeceased by his brother, Alan Alcon.

His family has entrusted the Gilpatric-VanVliet Funeral Home, 339 Broadway, Ulster Park, with the care and cremation service arrangements for Steve. A graveside service followed by burial with military honors will be announced in the spring.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions in Steve's memory to:
Ulster County Sheriff's Foundation, Inc., 380 Boulevard, Kingston, NY 12401.

This has truly made me sad.
This man was such a friend to me and my late husband.
Whenever I saw him he made me smile.
Because of bad choices in my past I became an inmate at the jail when he was a guard.
He never treated me differently or held it against me.
I moved to Minnesota and missed popping my head in his job to say hello and see his smile.
The world has lost a friend and we have all gained a guardian angel.
It was a pleasure knowing you.
