Since the sudden, tragic moment that our husband and father Chief Robert Tieche passed away, we have realized that we have many people in our lives to thank. Because of the help of our amazing family and friends, and the outpouring of support from our community, we continue to make it through a very difficult time. Additionally, Bob’s firefighters, along with firefighters from surrounding departments, who had also suffered a significant loss, provided a professional and reverent funeral service for Bob.
We know that Bob’s face would have been shining with pride because of the impressive way that his men stood together. At this holiday season, we find ourselves thankful for the fact that not only were we blessed with an outstanding husband and father who was dedicated to us as well as to the safety of others, but also numerous people who have helped us find the strength to carry on. Because of all of you, Chief Robert Tieche’s legacy will continue to live on.
Deby, Rob and Katie
