Bob was an awesome pilot, model Naval Officer & best friend! We fought the Cold War in our Patrol Squadron 24 P-3 Orions and shared life experiences that are impossible to describe. I'll never forget our times together as squadron mates and neighbors in Jax and Bermuda. He was a patriot to whom this country owes unending gratitude. Gail, please know that Sandy, Stephanie, Ryan & I are crushed by Bob's passing and are praying for peace and healing for you and your family. Carl & Sandy Mayabb
