My dad was his explorer for the rode alongs for awhile. Travis martin or charles, either one but my middle name robert is in memory of him. I never met you sir but hearing about you from my dad, you sounded like a true hero and an amazing officer and person. My dad always talked very highly and kindly of you and so did my grandparents.

Officer Shultis,
On today, the 30th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the USAF. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Bob was my sponsor at my first duty location with the US Air Force (Kadena AB Okinawa). He led by example and I appreciate everything he taught me during my assignment. My prayers are with his family and love ones.

I'm visiting this website again after many years, as I still think about Bob and hold him in my prayers. The older I am privileged to become, the more I appreciate the example he set as a friend and humanitarian. May your rest be sweet!

Bobby, We served together at the 22 AF NCOLS. I'll never forget the Christmas we both flew home to NY. Sure did have a great time. You were so proud when you got on SBPD. Will never forget that night when Paul Nolin called us to tell us what happened. SB lost a good officer. We lost a great friend. God bless. Still in my thoughts. So long ago, but like yesterday. RIP

It's been so long but still seems like yesterday you were still here. We still laugh at what you did that one night bowling in EI (you know what we're talking about)
The girls still talk about that weekend you babysit them--
You were taken to soon but you have not been forgotten--
You achieved things in your short life time that people never achieve in their lifetime.

So many years have gone by and not a day passes that I don't think of those gone. My children see your picture proudly hung on my wall and ask about you, what happen and how you died. I tell them but then I also tell them about the things you did to help others, and the many stories I have been told about when you were younger and the things dad told me.
I have seen my dad cry 4 times in my life, when grandpa died, you died, my mom died, and the last was when grandma died.
You were one of the good guys uncle Bobby and are very missed in this world.

Bob was a dear, dear man who I am privileged to have called my friend. I was in Sacramento on business recently and was moved to see him honored at the peace officer memorial. Bob's warmth, humor, generosity and kindness are his legacy.

"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.
