A former New Orleans police officer who saved the life of rap superstar Lil Wayne after he attempted suicide when he was 12 years old, has died.

According to sources, 65-year-old Robert Hoobler was found dead in his home on Friday. Hoobler had suffered from health issues after a car crash and struggled with diabetes, which led doctors to amputate both his legs.

Lil Wayne shared a touching tribute to the man he called “Uncle Bob,” on Instagram, posting a photo of the late officer outside his old house. He wrote, “Everything happens for a reason. I was dying when I met u at this very spot. U refused to let me die, Everything that doesn’t happen, doesn’t happen for a reason. That reason being you and faith. RIP uncle Bob. Aunt Kathie been waiting for u. I’ll love & miss u both and live for us all.”
