    I met Bobby and Marcia while they were both volunteering as Dispatcher's at the American Red Cross in Tulsa sending drivers to Hospital's with Blood deliveries. They are really, really, really the nicest people you would ever want to know and work with. I am sure there is a special place for Bobby for the lives he helped save while a Medical Corpsman in Vietnam with the Marines. Please accept my condolences. RIP and SEMPER FI! Bobby.

  2. Marcia & family. So sorry for your loss. Bob was a great man and one of the best police officers Tulsa was blessed to have. He fought a fierce battle and the Lord gave him many years of a good life. God bless you.
