Bob was like a father to me. I grew up with him with the boys scouts, fire dept, and with him on the Irvine police dept. I was first on the scene at the trailer park he was murdered . The whole story never came out. I was with him 40 minutes before he was ambushed and killed. I retired after 35 years on the job. Bob was a Lt Col. In The U.S. Army. He did not work for the money, he did not need it. He saw good in everyone. I honored his memory every day. I will never forget. I have had very few friends since bob. I hope the truth will come out about this planned ambush. It still pi---- me off.
