Uncle Rob
I Remember When You Brought Me My First black & Gold BMX Bike For Christmas. I know Cause You Was At My Home Putting It Together as I Watched. Even Though I Was Supposed To Be Sleep. I Remember When You Gave Me A Spanking Cause I Left The Park In Cypress, Walked Back To Plaza On My Own. I Remember Seeing You On The Park Bench at The Buildings Always Smiling & Laughing With Friends. Even Though I Was Only 9 When You Past On. I Have Some Good Memories of You. You Would Be Proud of The Family. Thank You For Being An Inspiration to Many.

It was my honor to research newspapers, books and magazines and finally find your ID Card Photo in a transit police magazine and make sure your photo was put on this site. I wanted to put a face to your heroism in the Line of Duty. I did the research because you are a brother officer and no matter how many years past, you will always be remembered. Rest Easy Hero.

Officer Venable you are the last true NYC Transit PD Police Officer to make the ultimate sacrifice before our Department became part of another yet quite different Department and as such although all our brothers and sisters of the NYCTPD who made the ultimate sacrifice must always be remembered you will forever hold a special place in that roll call of honorees. RIP Robert Venerable your patrol is no more but your work and sacrifice will never dissipate.

I remember that terrible day like it was yesterday. I was working plain clothes in dist. 30..I heard over the radio a Transit Cop was shot. I couldn't believe it was Rob. The days passed so slowly and all of us remained in disbelief.
We miss you brutha/Friend you will always be remembered.

Robert was always the cheerful type... fun to be around. I didn't know him as well as many, but his humor and style were infectious. I had the pleasure of later working with his daughter January at a collection agency. He would have been proud of her.

All I can say is that there are many things I wish I could change...be that as it may, thank you for giving me my younger sister...she's amazing, and I turned out pretty well myself...thanks for helping to bring us here.

All these years later and I am still dreaming of you. I think,of you often. You were the one that got away and you were the only one for me. I will love you until my last breath and I can't wait until we are together again in Heaven. RIP love of my life.
