  6. Dear Cindy, Was sorry to hear of Robert’s passing my condolences to you & yours in your time of sorrow.

  7. Jim was an excellent three sport athlete but more importantly a great guy. Whenever I think of him, I see him with a wide grin and the twinkling eyes of an impish young boy ready to “pull a prank” on some unsuspecting soul. Glad I knew him. Rest In Peace.

  8. So sorry to hear of Jim’s passing I know him and my dad worked together at Fulton PD in the late 60’s sorry for the family’s loss.

  9. It’s hard to say goodbye to good friends, and I considered Robby a good friend. We shared a lot of good times over the years, on the golf course, the softball field, and at mahogany ridge. Fairways and greens my friend, and may all your drives be long and straight.

  10. Very sad Robby was a great guy who enjoyed taking my money on the golf course many memories years ago when him and his dad hunted the same farm in Geneva as I did RIP Robby

  11. I always enjoyed having Robby as my Seargent. He was kind, fun to be around and quick to share his knowledge. I never saw him in a foul mood instead, a smile on his face. I was honored to serve under him.

  12. Funny Story: Robby was walking the beat. He stopped across from the Lamplighter bar. Stood there for awhile and then left. Ed Smith ( God rest his soul ) Says..” must be Robby doesn’t think he’ll catch any speeders there.”

    RIP Robby. Too soon for a really good guy
