Friends, family, co-workers remember bus driver a year after his death

PORT ANGELES – As cars whooshed by Saturday afternoon, about 30 friends, family and co-workers gathered at a spot beside U.S. Highway 101 where Steven Biss was killed a year ago.

They prayed together at a nearby restaurant and marched along the stretch of road where Biss was struck by a car on Jan. 29 and killed.

They placed a cross and sign at the spot, near the highway’s intersection with South Fairmount Avenue.

Monday will be the first anniversary of the veteran Clallam Paratransit driver’s death.

“What do we do with this hurt?” asked Pastor Mark Manning of the Constant Hope Fellowship in Port Angeles as he spoke at the Fairmount Restaurant.

“The road is not going to stop, the traffic is not going to stop and Sue’s pain is not going to stop.”

Steven Biss’ widow, Sue Biss, said the memorial and her faith have helped ease the pain.

She and her husband were raising two grandchildren, Ezekiel, 6, and William, 3.

Having him gone has been harder on the older boy, she said.

“He’s been having a rough time.”
