Bio: Stephen B. McLoud, 59, former Cayuga County Undersheriff, passed away Thursday, Aug. 29, 2019, at his family home, with his wife and children at his side.

The son of the late Bruce and MaryAnn Davis McLoud, Steve was born Feb. 17, 1960, in Auburn. A graduate of Weedsport Central High School, he earned his associate's degree in criminal justice from Cayuga Community College.

In January of 1982, McLoud became the first full-time police officer for the Village of Weedsport. Approximately a year and a half later, McLoud joined the sheriff's office on June 18, 1983. McLoud was promoted from patrol deputy to investigator in 1991 and held the office of Undersheriff from 2003 until his retirement in 2006.

After the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, Steve stepped forward to aid in the investigation and recovery efforts in New York City. Exposure during this detail caused the cancer that lead to his untimely passing 18 years later.

He was a 35-year member of the Weedsport Volunteer Fire Department and had also served with the Finger Lakes Drug Task Force and had been a Cayuga County Fire Investigator.

He was a member of the Weedsport Presbyterian Church; a former member of the Brutus Town Board, and owned and operated Oakland Acres Firewood. He was an avid hunter, and fisherman who loved the outdoors. Nothing brought him more joy than spending time with his grandchildren.

Steve's passing occurred on his 38th wedding anniversary with his wife, Anne Chapman McLoud.

Survived by:
Anne Chapman - Wife
and two children

Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: Twin Towers   New York, NY   USA   Tue. Sep. 11, 2001
Summary: Undersheriff Stephen McLoud died as the result of cancer that he developed following his assignment to the recovery efforts at the Fresh Kills landfill site following the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City.

Undersheriff McLoud had served with the Cayuga County Sheriff's for 23 years and was the agency's chief criminal investigator at the time he responded to assist with recovery efforts. He had also served with the Weedsport Fire Department for 20 years. He is survived by his wife and two children.

On the morning of September 11th, 2001, seventy-two officers from a total of eight local, state, and federal agencies were killed when terrorist hijackers working for the al Qaeda terrorist network, headed by Osama bin Laden, crashed four hijacked planes into the World Trade Center towers in New York City, the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

After the impact of the first plane into the World Trade Center's North Tower, putting the safety of others before their own, law enforcement officers along with fire and EMS personnel, rushed to the burning Twin Towers of the World Trade Center to aid the victims and lead them to safety. Due to their quick actions, it is estimated that over 25,000 people were saved.

As the evacuation continued, the South Tower unexpectedly collapsed as a result of the intense fire caused by the impact. The North Tower collapsed a short time later. Seventy-one law enforcement officers, 343 members of the New York City Fire Department and over 2,800 civilians were killed at the World Trade Center site.

A third hijacked plane crashed into a field in rural Pennsylvania when the passengers attempted to re-take control of the plane. One law enforcement officer, who was a passenger on the plane, was killed in that crash.

The fourth hijacked plane was crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, killing almost 200 military and civilian personnel. No law enforcement officers were killed at the Pentagon on 9/11.

The terrorist attacks resulted in the declaration of war against the Taliban regime, the illegal rulers of Afghanistan, and the al Qaeda terrorist network which also was based in Afghanistan.

On September 9th, 2005, all of the public safety officers killed on September 11th, 2001, were posthumously awarded the 9/11 Heroes Medal of Valor by President George W. Bush.

The contamination in the air at the World Trade Center site caused many rescue personnel to become extremely ill and eventually led to the death of several rescue workers.

On May 1st, 2011 members of the United States military conducted a raid on a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and killed Osama bin Laden.
