Dear Jayne and family,
You are in my thoughts, my sincere condolences to all of you. Shoey was to Norm his best friend, I am thankful for the many visits he made each summer to spend time with Norm even after he had had his stoke. The stories he shared of their days together policing always put a smile on his face and of course had us all in stitches. The two of them will surely be on duty together arriving into the Heavens depending on traffic being only days apart. Shoey was a down to earth, funny as heck , great guy,
Whom will always be remembered, loved and missed.
Thankful to have been part of his journey.
Christine Youngs

Our sincerest condolences go to Jayne Shoemaker and family regarding the
sudden passing of Bob. Shoey was a great partner in the detective office.
He never had a down day. We shared many laughs including BBQs at his home
and long adventures on our motorcycles.
He will be missed. Sincerely, Fred and Donna Fenwick
