I will miss Bob. You took pleasure in the simplest of things such as standing in the middle of a river fishing or receiving a cast iron frying pan for Christmas. You were an intelligent and compassionate person.

My words won’t come, nothing sounds proper. I will always remember Bob’s big personality yet humble demeanor. A conversation with him was always treasured because of his wisdom and understanding. I will miss you Bob, rest easy my friend.

Bubba was a tenured sergeant when I was first promoted to sergeant in 2005. He took me under his wing to help guide me through my new role as a supervisor. He was kind and generous with his time and never hesitated to answer the numerous questions I threw at him during some challenging supervisory moments I encountered. He was a great mentor to me. My thoughts are with his family and friends.
