Not too many people were of your calibre and were such a great leader and friend to so many. You influenced my career and supported me as my sergeant and as friend. You made us laugh and showed that a Sgt could be human after all. Those shifts watching the flight paths of planes at your desk and you trusting me in a cop car is still spoken of to this day and still makes me laugh. Lost but never forgotten.
Bob you will be missed, we will never forget your calm way to approach all situations.
