Officer Robert Fike was shot and killed by a suspect while standing next to his patrol car. Two citizens found him after the shooting and used his radio to call for help. A suspect, who had committed an armed robbery just before Officer Fike's murder, was arrested seven weeks later and charged with murder and armed robbery.

The suspect was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life.

Officer Fike was a former Officer of the Year and had been employed with the Phoenix Police Department for ten years. He is survived by his wife and two young sons.

Bob was my next door neighbor. He truly loved his job and family. He also spoiled my daughter. He loved his two sons, but really enjoyed spoiling a young girl.

We had many discussions about how he would make a bust and the perp would be back on the streets before he finished the paperwork. He would just shrug his shoulders and tell me that he loved what he did.

Thank God for him and those dedicated to protecting us

I am so thankful for the 100 club and the way they stepped in to take care of the family.

RIP Bob. We still miss you, Nancy and the boys.
