First met Bobby on 9-21-1981 as a rookie in the 3rd district. Bob worked EPW 301 with Chuck McCloud. What a wagon crew they were. Learned so much from them. Bob was a great cop and person. So many wonderful memories of my time working with Bobby. My first Mummers Parade five of us left the parade line around 9:00 am and never made it back until the parade was over at 6:00 pm. We staggered up Broad Street till we got to Morris Street where our Captain Russ Taylor was waiting with about 200 cops he wasn’t letting go until he found us. Captain Taylor said WTF were you guys. Chuck told him we were here, and when the Captain asked where, Chucky told him we were across the street. Needless to say we were called into his office the next day and read the riot act. He took away our overtime and left it at that. Old school good Captain. We golfed a lot back then, played half ball and met up to play cards. Bob went on many golf trips I ran over the years. I have nothing but great memories of Bobby. Going to miss my Friend of many years. My Heart go out too his family. He was truly a class act. Rest In Peace Buddy. 💙💙💙💙

Bobbie as I set here thinking of all those great years, we spent together on 301 wagon and playing golf together with Jim Bob and Dano, I wish that I could tell you once more how much I miss those times but if you can golf up their watch out for the trees with your Banana drives
