Lt. Andrew "Stew" Alcorn, IV, 39, Commander of Criminal Investigation Section Frederick Police Department, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Middletown on Sunday, August 22, 2021. He was the loving husband of 17 years to Jenn, and a devoted father to Drew, Mackenzie and Addison. They were his everything.

Born November 24, 1981 in Ogden, Utah, he was the loving son of Andrew "Drew" Alcorn III and Kris (Groom) Alcorn of Monrovia.

He was a graduate of Urbana High School, class of 2000, where he was a State Champion Football player, and all star athlete and excelled in wrestling and lacrosse. Stew received multiple state awards for his sports career. Additionally, he was the first "Mr. Urbana" in 2000. He loved his entire Hawk family, always.

He was also a master woodworker and builder and would spend countless hours completing tasks on his "honey do list". Including re-building his family’s home after a devastating house fire in 2018.
