I am so saddened to hear of the passing of Bob. I send Angels to wrap their wings around Chris and the family for support , a shoulder to cry on and strength to get through this devastating and stressful time. The heart is hurting and the mind is an emotional roller coaster that has you drained emotionally and physically.
Bob was a loving husband, father, grandfather and a fantastic friend. Always happy and the students made him feel needed and loved by all students, and faculty. Bob never met a was like he knew them all his life. He will be missed by all the police dept he served with and all friends and families. With all my empathies and sympathies... my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sorry i can not be there in person Chris. Rest In Peace Bob. 😢
