We have fond memories of Bob. He was a great father to our nephew Mike. We always looked forward to visiting him which usually included a sailing adventure.He was always a gracious host and a lot of fun, I remember more than one water fight happening in his back yard. We are so sorry for your loss. Mike and Rose Martin
