    Sincere condolences to Luba and family. I worked with Bob for various periods at both Fremantle and Perth CIB and his support in my career was invaluable. HE was a figurehead to many a young Detective, respected and most of all a loyal friend. Sadly missed but leaving behind a treasure of wonderful memories.. RIP Bob.
