Stephen ‘The Brick’ William McDOWELL

Stephen “The Brick” William McDowell died around 7pm on Sunday 13 October 2013 at the Ambarvale Hotel possibly due to a heart attack – having had heart problems for some time.

McDowell was boarded out of the NSWPF Medically unfit in 1996 after Serving as a Police Officer for 17 years since 1979.

He worked in the TRG ( Tactical Response Group ) and on HWP at Liverpool, G.D’s at Green Valley and Fairfield before being retired out of ‘the job’.

McDowell, of Glen Alpine, was also the Sergeant at Arms and President of the Campbelltown chapter of the Rebels OMG.

His nickname was ‘The Brick’ due to his strength and is famed for being able to bench press 180kg.

He led a colourful life but, by all accounts, was a great bloke to work with during his Policing career and still had respect for his Policing mates over the years.

May he now Rest In Peace.

Funeral details are not known at this stage.
