Bob and I worked together with the Fairfax Police Parking Enforcement Section. His passing came as Major surprise. He had looked forward to his retirement. My sympathies go out to all of his family and friends. May he Rest In Peace.

Bob and I met in 2001 when he applied to work in our Photo Red Light Unit. His life experiences were extremely valuable to our program as there are not many people happy they got caught. He became a good friend to everyone he worked with. We transitioned to the Parking Enforcement Unit where his friendship continued.

I had spoken to him a few days before his annual trip to Myrtle Beach. He was always looking forward to the beach vacation, planning stops along the way and the places he would visit when he was there.

As with everyone else I was shocked when I heard the news of his passing. It was not his time.

Rest in Peace my friend.

Bob Otten

My husband, JD, and I had the pleasure of working with Bob as detectives with the DC Police Department. Bob was a good detective with a great, easy going attitude and a wry sense of humor. He was a "behind-the-scenes" sort of guy, who solved his cases but never sought the limelight. He was, and will be remembered as, one of the good guys and he will be sorely missed!

Our prayers go out to Bob's family.

Bob will be missed by all those who knew him well. He was a treasure to work with and he was a great deal of fun to go to the races with. He was a centered person and I don't recall him ever having a bad day. See you on the other side, Bob.

I had the pleasure of working with Bob at District 35 Virginia Adult Probation & Parole. A group of us enjoyed going to numerous NASCAR races over the years. Bob was usually the driver & the humerous stories accumulated over the years are among my treasered memories. Thanks Bob for your years of service & friendship. To the family, you are in my thoughts & prayers.

Bob and I were partners at the First District Detectives before I left for the US Treasury Department.He loved his cigars and always wore his Columbo Trench Coat when we worked together. Always smiling and giving advice which most was informative and very funny. He was a good Man as Well as a Detective. R.I.P. my Brother. I am sure God has given you a place in his security detail. I only recently heard of his passing and sorry I wasnt able to go to his viewing. Again you were a Good Man Bob and you made my days at work enjoyable with a lot of laughter.
