Fallen Heroes Details

In Memory Of
Estevan Escobedo
Arizona Department of Game & Fish, Wildlife, AZ
End of watch: 1994-01-04
Aircraft: Bell 206B
Estevan Escobedo's helicopter collided with an unmarked power line and crashed while conducting a wildlife population survey.

The 34-yr old Wildlife Manager for the Arizona Game & Fish Department was a 10-yr veteran, joining the Department in 1984 after graduating from the law enforcement academy. One of a set of identical twins, Estevan was the Wildlife Manager in Globe for six years, and previously in Bullhead City and Casa Grande. Born in Mesa, Estevans early interest in falconry resulted in a chance encounter with an old game ranger, and fueled his desire to work for wildlife. In Estevan's name, an award was created in 1994. The Estevan Ortiz Escobedo Citation of Honor is awarded to dedicated professionals of the Arizona Game & Fish Department in recognition of acts of heroism, bravery, or valor in support of the Agency mission.
