Memories and Condolences

Bob: You have no idea how much I miss. You haven't a clue how much you meant to me in high school and my life. I missed you over the years, as I will miss you now. You will be in my heart.
First my condolences to his family,I met Bob in the early 70's when I was assigned to the 6th Dist 3 squad..Bob was always laughing.I remember him as an Eagles fan and believe that the Eagles were in the super bowl,he had his face painted green and his helmet.I will miss him,I have some great memories of working with him in the 6th Dist.
I met Bob in the beginning of my career and as the time went he decided to go to the Abandoned Car Unit until he retired. But he managed always to come to the district to visit us. You will be missed!! It was a pleasure and honor to work with you. RIP
My sincere condolances to the Von Clef family, a good man and police officer will greatly be missed
Bob worked for me. He was one hell of a person and one hell of a cop. I would ask him to do something and it was done. I don't think the word no was in his vocabulary. He will surly be miss by all. RIP brother till we meet again.
Bob, is a child hood friend who was always a happy go lucky guy. Loved his family,friends and sports and will be greatly missed. I will miss my golf partner.
Bob was a gentleman, full of kindness. May he rest in peace. My condolences to his family, He will be missed!!
Bob has stayed in our hearts these past 4 years & always will. No matter what was going on, he was always happy & upbeat. A wonderful husband, Dad, Grand-pop & friend from on the job. Always there for his fellow Police Officers, always there for his friends. We miss you every day, dear 'Bobby von Clef'. Love & prayers to your dear Family.
You have stayed in all of our hearts, dear Bob in these 4 years without you now in our lives. You always will. Your beautiful Family is never far from our thoughts. That smile of yours lit up any room you were in. No matter what you were going through, your smile was always there. Your buddies from the job hold a chair for you now & then at the FOP. To say 'thank you' for your friendship doesn't even begin to cover it. You are deeply missed, dear Bob.
