Uncle Bobby was always a giant of a man inside as much as outside. I loved when he used to come to visit Nana and Grandpa and told us all kinds of stories when we where little. He was always fun to hang out with. We all maybe scattered all over the USA now, but you are always in our thoughts and prayers. I will keep the rest of the family in our prayers. Love you all and Uncle Bobby will be missed by so many.

Bob, After all these years the one thing I remember the most is when I first started at the PD, I rode with you for the first week. You stopped a van full of hippies for running a stop sign. When we approached the van the driver was cursing us and calling us every name in the book. You told him that he had run a stop sign. He argued that he had slowed down. All this time he was cursing you and arguing. Finally he went on a cursing streak and told you that you were just going to have to show him the difference between slow down and stop. When I saw you switch that cigar from one side of your mouth to the other I knew things were probably going to get rough. You grabbed that hippie by the throat with one of those big meat hook hands of yours and started squeezing until his eyes protruded out. You then asked him, " Now, do you want me to stop or slow down"? I think he said stop.
The family is in my prayers.
God bless the family in their time of grief. And, God bless Bob.
I am so blessed to have known Bob for almost 40 years. We’ve had a lot of great talks and laughs. Living just a few houses away my husband Gary and Bob would sit outside and talk for a long time. Bob and I would catch up on my days walking my dog. We always talked of me going to Tunica with him but it never happened. Bob was a good friend to us and out children. Life is better for him being a part of our lives.
A great guy. Loved and admired by all that ever met or knew him. Prayers for family and friends. Heavens gain, our loss.
Worked with him for a long time. He was a great guy.
Bob, it was a pleasure working with you for over 22 years. You were a great police officer and friend. You taught me a lot about being a dedicated officer and I will always be grateful for the times we were together. You will truly be missed. You attended so many of your fellow police officer's funerals. This was one of the ways you always showed your respect and dedication to your fellow officer. Rest in peace my friend and God has blessed you.
NLRPD H.G. Retired. Enjoy your streets of Gold Sir, you deserve it.
