Steven Conant is no stranger to computers.  
Its what he does for a living.

"It's Security State Bank, it's the one on seventh street," said Conant. 

Working so close to downtown he got to walk right outside, and witness the funeral procession of Corporal Abel Marquez.

"It started off with me wanting to go down there wanting to be apart of the community to show how much we care," said Conant.

Some of his co-workers didn't get to go out to show their respects, and Steven didn't want them to miss an amazing sight.       

"The procession was from Temple to Seventh and took down to Dixie.  So I decided to take some pictures to have them for anybody who was interested. There's probably a lot of people who aren't around here who can't see how big a deal this is, how much has gone into it to honor these fallen police men," said Conant. 

So moved by what he saw he immediately began sharing the photos he snapped of Cpl. Abel Marquez's funeral procession with his co-workers.

"For people who are interested, I made this page for you at the bank it was only internal like I said. It became a big deal and people were like, I want to show my family outside the bank how would I do that, so I said I'll just make a website for you guys ya'll can use it whenever," said Conant. 

Steven took his favorite photos, and posted them on the site. Now all who missed the Memorial can get a glimpse of what took place last Tuesday.       

"It's just a big deal to me to see that many people come together for their fallen heroes.  All these cops who come together for one of their fallen heroes, I don't know, it's just a monumental deal, I don't know how to put it into words.  You know how big this deal was, you know, how many people showed up all the American Flags you know supporting our people," said Conant.
