As most are aware Sergeant Landbeck was a passionate trooper that contributed very positively to the image of the Maryland State Police. Below are some links that highlight and frame his highly energetic and passionate style of policing, love for MSP, and the community he served. I believe he served most of his career at the North East Barrack. Most of us are also aware that Steve is the brother of Judge (ret) John S. Landbeck Jr. Another loved individual that influenced many of our Harford County law enforcement careers.

Obituary from Collins Funeral Home website:
Steven D. Landbeck, 74, died March 26, 2017 after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease at Christiana Care Hospital, Newark, Delaware.

Landbeck; his brother, John S. Landbeck, Jr. and his wife, Sandra; his brother, Ronald O. Landbeck and his wife, Joyce; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Steven was born in Baltimore, Maryland. He graduated from Aberdeen High School in 1960 and immediately entered the Navy. He served on the USS Ranger CVA-61 for four years. He then entered the Maryland State Police in 1964/65 and served with them until an on duty automobile accident caused him to retire in 1990. He then worked for the Cecil County Sheriff’s Department and various jobs before having to fully retire due to the Parkinson’s. In 2008, he and Linda moved to Richmond Hill, Georgia to be closer to their granddaughter, and most recently moved to Newark, Delaware.
Steven enjoyed his friends, telling jokes, playing pranks, RV camping, working the Cecil County Fair, performing community service and activities, his dogs, his church and family activities.
