He returned home to continue his education and joined the police academy to become a Deputy Sheriff with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department for 25 years. He then went on the University of Louisville to obtain his training in Police Administration and traffic control.
Bob held several positions at the Sheriff’s department, to become a Lieutenant in the traffic division.

He then became Chief of Police at Carlisle Ohio until retiring in 2004.

In his spare time Bob liked to go fishing, camping, cheer on Cincinnati sports teams and spent countless hours with his family. He also enjoyed watching his great grandchildren grow up.
