In Memory of Robert Bane

Retired police chief Robert Bane passed away last Sunday. Our deepest sympathies to his family and friends, he was a great man and will be missed. He had a long career in law enforcement, with many jobs as patrolman in several towns and finally he came to work here in Paxton. He was a patrolman at first and then worked his way up and became our poice chief in 2006. He always treated people fairly and with respect, and always tried to help people too. I had the pleasure of dealing with  Mr. Bane on several occasions at city council meetings and other times and I feel honored and grateful to have known him. He worked very hard to make our community a safer and happier place to live. We will all miss him..
