I’m saddened to report the death, due to COVID-19, of my friend and one-time neighbor Charles “Rob” Roberts, of the Glen Ridge (NJ) Police Department. My deepest condolences to his wife Alice, and his kids, Natalie, Shea, and Gavin. Even in memory, I think of Rob as too vividly alive to be fully gone. I will miss him deeply, as will many others in his family, his department, his community, and beyond.
This is a tweet from the police department in neighboring Bloomfield Township; the Glen Ridge Department will make a formal announcement later.
I first mentioned the story here at PoT back on April 22nd.
Requiescat in pace.
