Lt. Frazier

I met you growing up in Charlottesville, you were my DARE Officer in school. I always said you impacted my life and I turned out the way I did because of you and DARE.

I was an explorer with CPD for a few years before I finally moved away from Charlottesville. Now; all this time later, I am a husband and a father, and a graduate of the West Virginia State Police Academy.

I now have an opportunity to work with DARE and am starting an Explorer Post so I can impact youth in my community like you did. I never got to tell you "thank you". And for you to know how much you impacted my life.

Rest in Peace Brother

As one of your SWAT operators I remember removing my nametags and placed it carefully on your uniform, near your badge.

This past May I met your daughter (how she has grown) at the memorial and shared some fun times we had on the team. I also had a memorial bracelet with your EOW and gave it to Sharon; she was emotional and greatful..

rest easy, we got it!!!

I drive past the hallowed ground where we laid you to rest and I cannot help but hear the volley of the rifles, the blowing of taps, and the snap of the many salutes that marked your passing.

I remember standing in the church aisles, watching each of your friends and teammates stop and face your casket. Each officer slowly lifting their hands to render to you and your family, the most ancient and solemn form of respect, the salute of warriors.

Not many people know this, but your Team members stand a silent vigil, watching over you while you rest. Each of your SWAT operators removed their nametags and placed them carefully on your uniform, near your badge and heart of gold. You will never be alone my friend, we will always be there,…..a man to your left and a man to your right.

To My Bob, as of yesterday 10yrs. has passed and I still hurt and miss you as well as your children, who are now young adults. We know you are in a better place, but just taken much too soon from us.

You are much loved and missed and will be forever.
Your loving wife, Sharon

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

What a shame to have achieved such success in your career, only to have it taken from you at such a young age. You obviously were chosen by your agency to represent them at the FBINA, a culmination of dedication to your profession. Congratulations on a job well done. For whatever reason, God decided that you were needed more by Him than by us down here. Watch over your family and the rest of us officers until we meet in the future.

FBINA 197th Session

To Lt. Robert Eugene Frazier Jr. and his loved ones:

On this the fourth anniversary of your tragic death, please know that your memory is honored and revered today.

My heart goes out to your family. You’re in our thoughts and our prayers. Reading the loving reflections about your beloved Bob gives us some understanding of what a kind and honorable man he was, and what he meant to his family and friends.

Bob, you rescued us, saved our possessions, our lives and our families. You are one of the rare heroes among us. You were always there for us in the most traumatic moments of our lives. No matter when we called, we just expected that you would come and do whatever it took to help us, and you always met our expectations. Your selflessness and dedication are awe-inspiring.

This world, this country, your community truly are better places because of you. To have lost you is a great tragedy, an irreplaceable, immeasurable loss for society. We are grateful for and to you, and honor you for all you did for us day in and day out whether you received a word of thanks or praise.

Rest in Peace, Lt. Frazier. I am humbled by your valor, courage, and dedication. How your loved ones must miss you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Bob gave to his community and the citizens of Virginia, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on April 15, 2002.

On behalf of the men and women of the Virginia State University Police Department, our thoughts and prayers to the Frazier family and the Charlottesville Police Department.

Virginia State University Police Department

I was an intern with the Charlottesville Police Department while I was attending the University of Virginia in 1995-1996. I remember Bob along with all the other officers I met during my brief time there. His and their contribution in allowing me to work towards my goal of becoming an officer will never be forgotten.

I have now been an officer in Phoenix, Arizona for more than five years. During my time here we have lost more than a few wonderful officers who were also great human beings. I would like to believe that each of them is now an angel watching over us whose name we know.

Bob's family is in my heart tonight, and I wish them well. Your husband and father was a good man.

Officer J. Austin
Phoenix Police Department

Bob, As a newly promoted Sergeant, I will strive to emulate you in your way of caring for your troops and the citizens of our City. I picked on you some, "Rambo", but I hope you know that I loved you like a brother especially during our time together as Detectives years ago. Cops all too often don't say this to their friends..until it's too late. Rest easy and God Bless.

By the way, I thought the 30 round magazines would have been appropriate. :)

Sergeant Steven L. Dillon
Charlottesville Police Department

My thoughts and prayers go to the family and friends of Lt. Frazier. I used to ride with Bob in the early 1980's when I was with the Explorer Program with the Charlottesville Police Department. Bob always took the time to teach and help us understand procedures and legal issues. Today, I still use some of the tactics and ideals that Bob taught me back then. Bob was a true friend and will be greatly missed by all.
