Missed but not forgotten at this year's reunion Lackland AFB, San Antonio, TX.
We had hope to see you once again since 43 yrs of time when we served together in the 189th MP K-9 Unit, Miesau, Germany. I'm proud to say I had the honor and privilege of working with you, always supportive and a good listener as well as a great leader of men. You'll always be in our thoughts and rememberer by all that had the pleasure of knowing you.

Sgt. Bobby Litton was my team chief as an MP dog handler in Miesau between 1975 and 1977. Sarge was always even tempered and kept things on task. He was fair and helpful to those in the ranks above and below him. He had a good sense of humor and was always approachable. The dog handlers of the 189th MP company just had a reunion in San Antonio. I had reached out to Bob to see if he was interested. Unfortunately he didn’t attend the festivities. As with many, he was missed there, and will be missed by those close to him in life. Thanks Sarge for your many acts of professional service to the nation, the state and your community. It was an honor to have known you and perhaps learned something from your gentle and patient spirit. Rest In Peace Brother. Michael Brian, Lindale, TX

Bob and I worked together at Copperas Cove Police Department and Fort Hood Police Department. Bod was and exceptional officer and a friend. We both were retired from the Army and shared many memories and interest. Bob was loyal to the end no mater what may have come next. I pray that our Father in heaven grant Bob his many deserved rewards as an honorable man and servant to his Country and this State. I pray for his family that they find peace and comfort in God's love trusting in the knowledge that they shall all be together in again.
"Grief never ends... but it changes. It's a passage. not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness. nor a lack of faith... It is the price of love."
When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name, and took me by the hand; The angel said my place was ready, In Heaven far above, And that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love, but when I walked through Heaven's Gates,
I felt so much at home, for God looked down, smiled at me,and told me "Welcome Home."
So when tomorrow starts without me, Don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, l am right there in your heart.
Bob until we meet again.

I met Bobby 50 years ago while we were still in high school. We attended different schools but we knew some of the same people. I recently found Bobby on Facebook while searching for some old friends. We chatted and shared some memories. There are people who enter your life for a short while, but their kindness and personality stay in your memory forever. Bobby was one of those people. I feel blessed to have had that last connection with him. Rest in peace, Bobby.

Bob and I were partners working Midnight Shifts at Fort Hood Texas, He was a great partner and friend whom I always had the utmost respect for. I remember one particular night he was trying to get a car stopped for speeding. We chased this car around the Fort Hood bank like three times before we could get it stopped. Out comes this highly intoxicated girl who said she was following some soldiers back to their room for a party and she got really belligerent to Bob. He held his composure and professionalism until we put her in the back seat of his patrol car and she started kicking the door to the point she bent the door frame. Bob flung open the door and pulled her out and we put her in my car. Later at the station she was still being nasty to everyone. About a week later her mother and father brought her back to the station to apologize for her bad behavior and thanked Bob for his tolerance and professionalism. It was just the way Bob was. Like a duck, smooth on top while going like hell underwater. Traffic Patrol 527 to Patrol 525, Till we meet again partner.
