I've known Bob for 40 years. I knew him when he was a resident trooper in Lincoln Parish and he would "follow" us on calls. When he went to Detectives, we worked on several cases together over the years. I always appreciated his unique sense of humor and the fact that he knew everybody. And everybody knew him. Prayers for the family and his law enforcement family.
