Robert “Bob” Thomas Frey November 1, 1938 – November 25, 2020 Bob Frey, 82, of Woodstock, VA passed away November 25, 2020 in Harrisonburg, VA. Bob was born November 1, 1938. He retired from the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Department in 1992. He is survived by his wife Kathleen M. Frey; stepson David Borton; stepdaughter Teresa DeSantis and son-in-law Aniello A. DeSantis; and two step grandchildren Joseph Wang and Jonathan Wang. Bob served in the United States Air Force at the age of 17, proudly serving as an Armament Specialist from 1955-1967. He completed two tours in the Vietnam War. After leaving the military, he spent two years writing technical bulletins on explosive ordinance for the United States Navy EOD School in Maryland. In 1971, Bob entered his much-loved career in law enforcement, spending a few years as an officer with the Fairfax County Police Department before joining the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office. He retired in 1992 as a Captain in Court Securities Services. During his time with the Sheriff’s Office and several years after retiring he was a trainer and consultant to US Law Enforcement agencies on anti-terrorism and court security. As many of his friends and family know, Bob had a passion for military history and was an avid collector. He and Kathy spent many hours searching for military items at various flea markets or online. He would avidly research the historical value of their discoveries and resell to other collectors the items he chose not to keep. One little known fact about Bob is that he and Kathy were marriage celebrants for five years, joining many couples in wedded bliss at various locations around Fairfax County, Virginia. He was well loved and will be dearly missed. Fond memories and condolences may be shared with the Frey family through this website. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
