  1. candleBob welcomed me to the CJEANYS when I first joined the association. He was always friendly and a happy person to be around. He will be missed very much.

  2. candleThinking about the Alexander family..may the precious memories of your dad/grandfather be always in your heart❤️

  3. Bob was extraordinarily welcoming when I moved from California and joined the faculty at Suffolk. He consistently had a smile on his face and a joke for me. We shared a status as former soldiers, which created another bond between us. He always lifted my spirits, and was the epitome of a great colleague. Til Valhalla, Bob.

  4. Bob and I were foot cops in the old 14th Pct. back in the 60s. We frequently had adjoining posts. We spent
    a lot of time together. He convinced me to give John Jay college a try. Even set up a meeting with a
    college counselor for me. 10 years later I had a law degree from St. John’s. Probably would never have
    happened without Bob getting me started. A great guy. My sincere condolences to the family.

  5. Bob was one of finest faculty members that I had the opportunity to work with at the Grant Campus of Suffolk County Community College. As the former Dean of Faculty on the Campus, I was very proud to have him serve as a member of the Criminal Justice Faculty. As a former NYPD Officer, Bob brought significant professional experience to the classroom. Both his students and his colleagues on Campus always regarded him as a true professional. Bob will be missed. Rest in peace my friend!

  6. Bob,
    Thanks so much for great memories endless laughs, and great mentor/friendship.

    We love and miss you. Until the next time we meet.

  7. candleI’m so grateful for the opportunity to have met Bob Alexander and to call him a friend. His quick wit and sense of humor lit up our office when he would stop by. Thanks for all the great conversations, Bob. You will be missed!

  8. Thank you Bob for tolerating my craziness for all those years as my office mate. I will always remember the “Ninja” preparing for his classes. I have missed, since I retired, our great conversations, the stories you told me of the old NYPD and the many stories we told each other of the old 42nd Street. Good bye Bob.
