US Marine Veteran Killed Defending Restaurant Worker From Robber


US Marine Veteran Robert Sundin

US Marine Veteran Robert Sundin, 70, gave his life defending a restaurant worker from an armed robber.

KTVU Fox 2 reports:

A Vallejo restaurant worker says one of her regular customers is a hero for coming to her aid when she was confronted by an apparent robber, who shot him dead.

“He saved my life. That’s the type of person he was. He saved my life. He’s always going to be my guardian angel for life,” said Teresa Brasher.

Brasher said Robert Sundin sacrificed his life for hers by protecting her Thursday morning. Sundin, 70, was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who worked in the VA healthcare system. He was also a church volunteer.

“God wasn’t ready for me. But they had a place for Bob up there,” Brasher said.

At 5:30 a.m. each weekday morning, like clockwork, Sundin would drive from his Napa home and pull up outside Scotty’s Restaurant at Tennessee and Tuolumne streets in Vallejo. He’d keep an eye on Brasher as she opened up the restaurant.
