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 had previously served as a military police officer with the United States Army. He was survived by his parents, two older brothers, and a sister.

You are never forgotten Uncle. Think about you often and some very fond memories. I think the time you put me in handcuffs when I was 8 was enough to keep me on the right side of the law. We’ve never given up know that one day God will deal justice to those responsible. You are missed and loved and always will be.

We love you, Uncle.
