Robert W. Yesucevitz

Officer Robert Yesucevitz was shot and killed while patrolling the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston, Massachusetts.

He had radioed the other officer who was working to report that he was checking on unusual activity in the rear of the library. After being unable to reach him again by radio, his backup officer found him with a single gunshot wound to the head and one round fired from his revolver, still in his hand. Despite a massive investigation, no suspects were ever identified.

Officer Yesucevitz was a United States Army veteran and had served with the United States General Services Administration - Federal Protective Service for four years. He was survived by his parents, two older brothers, and a sister.

I can’t believe you’ve been gone 40 years! I still don’t understand why God took you or why we have never gotten answers as to what happened that night. As others have said justice will be served by One mightier than us. I have so many fun memories of our time together. To Bob’s family - please know that he has not been forgotten by those of us who worked with him & loved him. I wish I had seen this page earlier but didn’t come across it until recently. Someday we will all meet again. God Bless.
