    I grew up as one of Bob’s neighbors and counted his late daughter, Roberta, as one of our good friends. So sorry for all of Roberta’s siblings to lose their dad. I know all of us in the Neal family want to convey our condolences. Peggy, Mary, Kathi, Carol, Sally & Bob.

    I met Bob while working at the federal courthouse. His presence was always known! I never saw him without a smile on his face or a story to tell. It didn’t take long for conversation to reveal we were from the same hometown area…it’s a small world! He will be missed!

    Thoughts & Prayers,

    Canton SDI had the pleasure of working with Bob at the Fargo Police Department from the mid 80s to the mid 90s. He was an Icon in the department, everyone in town knew Bob. To Bob’s family, you should all be very proud of what your father has accomplished.

    Bob was a great neighbor. We lived next door for 20 years and enjoyed many conversations. Bob watched our kids grow up and they enjoyed Bob. We had a gardening co-op for 3 years in his yard, his knowledge, our labor! It was fun. We were happy for him when he moved to One Oak but sad to see him leave. We’ll miss you Bob.

    Bob was an outstanding police officer. I enjoyed my association with him during the time I was on the Fargo City Commission.

    Bob was a straight talking person and was easy to get him say what was on his mind. He worked hard for the City of Fargo and was always respectful of others.
