Clifton Police Sergeant Miller Remembered Fondly After Sudden Death at 50
The Clifton Police Department announced police Sgt. Robert Miller died suddenly on Saturday at 50 years old. "We are absolutely devastated by the loss of our friend and co-worker, Sgt. Robert Miller, Bobby," the department posted on social media. A cause of death was not released.
Sgt. Miller joined the Clifton Police Department as dispatcher in 1998. In April of 2004, he became a Clifton police officer and worked in the Patrol Division until his promotion to the rank of sergeant in 2016.
He was remembered as kind and humble with a self-deprecating sense of humor and a personality that was hard not to like. He was well known around the department as someone who LOVED initiating conversations about hypothetical police situations. He was genuinely intrigued by the different responses he would get from his fellow officers.
The department shared "...we will miss him tremendously. All losses hurt, but some hurt just a little more than normal. This is one of those times."
City Manager Nick Villano shared "On behalf of the Mayor and Council I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Sgt. Miller’s widow, and to his entire family. He was a kind man, well respected by his peers, with a humble personality which made him an exemplary Police Officer. He will be missed, and we will keep him and his family in our prayers and thoughts during this difficult time."
