I was Bob's rookie in l972 at Ft Bragg, NC. I thought what a grouchy First Sergeant he was when I first met him, for when I walked in he handed me the CID Manual and said read this, and about 4 days later he finally talked with me when we sat down and he told me what was expected. The first thing he explained was he did not want to get to know me or be my friend until my background was finished and I was accepted as an apprentice. I learned so much from him, and had the pleasure of running into him several times since we left FT. Bragg. He will be missed.

I had the privilege of working with Bob while assigned to the Augsburg RA MPI/CID Drug Team in 1976 and 77. He was a good man and I'm sorry to hear of his departure.

I served with Bob in the 123d MP Det (Okinawa) from 66 to 69. A great guy. Sorry to hear he is no longer with us.

I did not know Bob personally, but we were classmates at the Criminal Investigation Course at Fort Gordon GA in Dec 1965. My thoughts and prayers are with the Amick family.

I am the son of Robert Amick and on behalf of my family, I would like express our sincerest gratitude to everyone here who have taken the time to post their comments. As well as all of those whom have mailed cards. We would especially like to thank Mr. Carl Craig for his help with the corrections in the obituary, Mr. Larry Mason and Mr. Carl Craig for serving as Pall Bearers, and Mr. Charlie Cooper for the tremendous sacrifice he made to attend the services. My sisters and I really enjoyed meeting you gentlemen and hearing your stories & memories of our father. We always knew what a special man he was, but we were really honored to hear how well respected he was by his peers and colleagues.
Thank you all,
R. Michael Amick

While I never had the pleasure of working with Bob on AD, it was always a delight to see him at the many annual gatherings he attended. I always enjoyed seeing him again, and also the good conversation. Another benefit of the CIDAA is meeting folks you knew of,like Bob,or haven't seen in many years and reconnecting. Rest in peace, Bob. Dick and Mary Ann

Bob was a good friend and always seemed jolly at our CIDAA Meetings. He never seemed to have a harsh word to say about anyone. He will be sadly missed at our future gatherings. Rest in Peace, my friend!!

On Tuesday, 5 January, 2010, Bob's Visitation, Church and Graveside Services were attended by CIDAA Members Charlie Cooper from Atlanta,GA, Larry Mason and myself, from Columbia, SC. Mrs. Amick (Edna) and the Amick family were very appreciative of our presence and support. Larry and myself served as Pall Bearers. Bob was a faithful supporter of CIDAA, as evidenced by his service and attendance at our annual meetings. I had the privilege of knowing Bob for over 40 years, and for the past fifteen years, we have lived in the same city and attended regular get-togethers with Active Duty CID and Retired CIDAA members. Bob devoted much of his time to his Church and many charities. His cause of death was listed as cardiac arrest. He will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace my friend. Carl Craig
