Captain Steven M. Bomba was a valued member of the Lincoln Fire Department for over six years. Steven joined the Explorers at age 17, with his interest in the fire service.
Steve’s interests were not limited to the town of Lincoln. He was also a member of the Campton/Thornton Fire Department, Lin-wood Ambulance Service, Speedway Safety Services, and was a full-time dispatcher for Grafton County. Whenever there was something that needed to be done, you could count on Steve. Steve was passionate about training the members of the Lincoln Fire Department and was the catalyst in transitioning the department into a forward-thinking, progressive department. A lot of what Steve accomplished and projects that he had not yet finished are now in the hands of the entire department. The members have vowed to complete and expand on them, because we know that is what he would want us to do.
Steven had strong family values. He was a communicant of St. Joseph Church in Lincoln, New Hampshire. He enjoyed football, baseball, and wrestling, taking his siblings to Red Sox games, and always doing things with his family in the few hours left after giving back to the community.
Steven will be deeply missed by his family: father, Stephen Sr.; mother, Christine; brothers, Anthony, Vincent, Joseph, and Philip; sister, Jennifer; maternal grandfather, Francis Hogan; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He was a dedicated public servant, brave and committed to his work. He is remembered for his big heart, for always putting his family first, and for helping those in need.
