Resided in: Fairfax, Virginia
Robert H. McKee, 68, of Fairfax, VA, passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home on October 27, 2023. He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Kendra K. McKee, son Tyler McKee (Mayra), and granddaughter Olivia. Bob is also survived by his mother Wanda McKee and sister Carolyn Shriver (Paul), as well as his mother-in-law May Kleiner, and sister-in-law Lisa Kleiner.
Robert was born in Maysville, KY and spent his early childhood in Flemingsburg, KY. Being from an Army family, he spent many years living in Germany, France, and Pennsylvania, ending up in Alexandria, VA, where he finished his middle and high school years. Bob furthered his education at Eastern Kentucky University studying law enforcement which started him on a long career in that field.
Following graduation from college, Bob began his law enforcement career at George Mason University, then followed by five years with the Alexandria Police Department, before his long career with Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS). During his career with NCIS, Bob worked in various departments within that agency, such as advanced security and details with foreign diplomats, counterintelligence, and cyber-crime. While at NCIS he was deployed to Yokosuka, Japan, for a three-year tour and travelled to Russia and the Philippines periodically. After retirement with NCIS, he worked for several defense contractors at Quantico, VA, before retiring in 2019.
During his free time he enjoyed baseball (Cincinnati Reds and Washington Nationals), football (Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Commanders) and for many years played coed softball in Alexandria. In addition to sports, Bob enjoyed listening to “real” country music – not the new stuff so influenced by “rock & roll”. He was also awarded the honor of Kentucky Colonel, the highest title of honor bestowed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
