We all grow up, move along, lose touch but it doesn't mean I stop thinking for 1 second about my cuz's. Thinking of you "little Bobby".
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Living out here on the west coast sometimes news finds me in the strangest of places. The news I received today of Bobby's passing floored me. I served with Bobby during our time together at Woods Hole and we often carpooled in together. "NO" was not part of his vocabulary, even though his love for the Dolphins was. This is a loss for the entire USCG and he will be greatly missed. One great shipmate. Farewell Bobby-B.
This was a shocker to me when I read the notice from Topeka. I had the privilege of attending JUMPPS/PMIS training with Bobby in the mid-80's and we all had a great laugh when US Airways lost the luggage containing his uniform. I know this man was a warrior who will be missed by those who lives he touched.

Bob was the consummate professional, mentor, friend, and shipmate. I served with Bob in Boston and will truly miss him.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
