John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Officer Dooley,
On today, the 4th 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 U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Brother Bob,
Sadly I just learned of your passing. I remember our get togethers in the mid 70s and exchanging our days at Detroit rehab. Haven't seen you in years but looking forward to seeing you again. Keep a cold one ready for me. RIP my brother.

Dear Uncle Bob, as he was known to me and my siblings. A close friend and fellow officer of my father I remember his laugh, his unquenchable spirit, and his unyielding friendship. You are missed.

As he and my father used to say - love ya dig ya!

I remember Bob Dooley visiting my home as a child. He workrd at Sears auto before he was a policeman. Is this the same Bob Dooley?

The third subject was killed by a drug dealer in a shootout in Detroit. He died as he lived, violently and unmourned. I remember Bob's slow recovery after his close call with death. He never gave up trying and hoping for a better future. A true gentleman and a great warrior for justice. KQA414, the last run.

It was an honor to know Bob. My partner (Kerry C. Hansen) and I stood guard many days at Ford Hospital for Bob as he recuperated. Many officer's of the 2nd Precinct (2801 W. Vernor Street, Detroit) also had the pleasure to give their time for our police family which included Patrolman, Robert Dooley.

During the 2014 Candlelight Vigil I had the honor and privilege of escorting your wife from the bus to her seat in the Memorial for the Vigil. It was an honor to share in your memory. Rest In Peace sir! You will never be forgotten!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 2nd anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace
