Sergeant Robert Ahn was my first sergeant when I joined the force in March 1974. he was a true leader and educator in the police field. On my very first midnight to eight shift I was told I have to have a CB radio in the police car with me to communicate with everyone else. He gave me a the radio handle and nickname of Pooh bear. Rest in peace Reverend bear!

My late husband, George worked with Bob in Plumstead township. We enjoyed going to his home in Plumstead, sitting under the "pavilion" enjoying the beautiful surroundings. I am sorry for your lose.

I only knew Bob for about 5 years but when we stopped over he always welcomed us ( we are the New Jersey gang). Loved hanging out with him in the garage bar and talking with him about his cars and trucks. My condolences, he will be missed.
