Your Dad was a special friend to Dar and I. Our journey through policing together was one that I will never forget. Regardless of how long it was between visits it was like we lived next door to each other. Best man at our wedding and a very loyal message. Always in our thoughts.

I was very sad to hear of Bob’s passing. He was a wonderful man all around and a true professional during his career with the OPP. Alzheimer’s is a horrendous disease so I am glad that he is no longer suffering. Thinking of the Cooke family at this difficult time. Rest In Peace Bob.
