The Huber Heights Police Division announced retired officer Robbie Redcross died Tuesday of health complications.

Redcross died at Hospice of Dayton, according to the division’s Facebook account. He served in Huber Heights for 25 years before retiring in 2006, according to the post and archival news coverage.

Redcross’ age and service arrangements were not immediately available.

“Robbie was well loved by the Police Division and the residents of Huber Heights,” the division said on Facebook. “This is a huge loss for all who knew Robbie. Robbie will be remembered for his generosity, calming presence and his dedication.”

In 2015, Redcross — then retired from the police division — stood armed in front of the Huber Heights Armed Forces Recruiting Center on Chambersburg Road after a lone gunman killed four Marines and a sailor in attacks at two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tenn.

Last month, Huber Heights Sgt. Frank Crouse died. His funeral was Dec. 11.
