Photos: Remembering Captain Stephen R. Misetic

Gathering at Christiana Mall

Wilmington – This morning, family, friends and members of the public gathered at the Chase Center on the Riverfront to say goodbye to Wilmington Police Captain Stephen R. Misetic. Police officers from across Delaware began gathering at staging areas around Wilmington, at around 5:30 this morning.

At approximately 7 a.m. officers left those staging areas to make their way to the Chase Center.

The viewing started at 9 a.m. and is scheduled to end at 10:45 a.m. Misetic’s Memorial Service will begin at 11 a.m. and the interment will be private.

Misetic, 45, suffered a heart attack on Saturday morning at his home while getting ready for work. The 21-year veteran of the department and the commander of the Drugs, Organized Crime and Vice Unit is survived by his wife, Colleen, and his 14-year-old twin daughters, Stephanie and Cassie.

In memory of Captain Misetic, the Wilmington Department of Police has set up “The Stephen R. Misetic Memorial Fund” to support the family’s immediate and future needs. If lieu of flowers, anyone who wishes to make a donation into the fund may do so by visiting any local WSFS bank institution.
