I have not had the honor of meeting Trooper Bob Chab. My tour of duty with the Patrol didn't begin until 1988. I did, however, have the immense pleasure of serving with his son, Jerry. I worked many nights on the road with Jerry Chab. He was always the epitome of what people expect from a State Trooper. Many only aspire to the accomplishments Jerry has achieved. I believe Bob Chab brought forth a shining example of what a Trooper should stand for in his son, Jerry.

God bless the Chab family; You are in my prayers.
