On March 10, 2021 Major Stuart Neal Bozeman entered the gates of Heaven and was
welcomed home by Jesus. While we feel pain losing an amazing husband, father, son,
brother, colleague and friend, we find peace beyond understanding knowing that God
has given him absolute and perfect healing.

Department. Major Bozeman worked in various assignments including the Uniform
Division, Training, Accident Investigations Unit, Criminal Investigation Division, and
served as Honor Guard commander. Most recently, Major Bozeman was commander of
the Bay Creek Precinct.

  28. CandleImageMy deepest condolences to Major Bozeman’s family. May god give you all strength and faith during this difficult time. Major Bozeman was a kind, and selfless person. Working with him at the Police Department was my honor. May his soul rest in peace!

  29. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Stu was a blessing! His smile, positive attitude, professionalism, thoughtfulness, humbleness and courage made him a joy to work with and to be around. I hope the family can take some comfort in knowing that he was loved by so many, and while he will be so deeply missed he will always be a part of us and our lives. God bless you and comfort you!

  30. CandleImageSo sorry for your loss Carrie. I know you were expecting many more years with your wonderful husband. So many dreams left unfulfilled. Just know he is in a better place and that you will see him again one day. When you take your last breath he will be standing at the gates waiting for you with his arms open wide.

  31. CandleImageI had the privilege of working SS evening watch with him many years ago. Bozeman (that’s what we called him “back in the day”) was a great officer and friend. He kept his kind heart throughout the years on the job and always encouraged those around him.

I will be praying for God’s comfort for all.

  33. Stu has been my best friend for over 20 years. I will miss him and his upbeat attitude very much. He was there for me when I needed him. Fly high and far Stu, you deserve that.
