Hello - I'm sorry about your father. I believe he was a friend of my parents, William and Ellen Mann, and if I remember correctly, your parents and my parents were two of three (?) couples who owned a handsome wooden sailboat named the Gitana. Does that ring a bell?
At any rate, my condolences.

You, more than anyone, know the power of photographs and this gallery of images is so telling of the life your dear father enjoyed. Thank you for giving me a glimpse into what being his loving and loved daughter was like.
Dear Anne, so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He sounds like a wonderful man who was loved by many, and he raised a very caring and talented daughter. Rest in the peace of knowing you gave him the love, respect and quality of life he so deserved for his life of kindness. Take care!
Bob Catell was the best friend and pal I ever had, a wonderful neighbor, always happy in love with life and his loving wife Cinthia. My deepest and heartfelt sympathy. Larry George
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
We are so sorry for your loss. Your father sounds like a wonderful person. We hope good memories keep him alive in your heart and comfort you.
All our best,
Carolyn and Arnie
Bob was my underclass section leader at MMA. In later years we were both members of the Portland Marine Society. Bob was a good friend and a true gentleman.

Annie, So sorry to hear about your dad's passing (always Mr. Catell to me) isn't it amazing all the wonderful memories that come rushing in!! Both of your parents were so special to me growing up...they really showed all of us what love and caring for each other is all about...Hugs to you and your family...with love and sympathy,
Hello Anne: Well, the memories of your dad and mom will always be in my mind while we went to school together. They were such good friends of my parents and the Bowlers. We called them the Bayview/Spring street gang. I will surely miss your dad. Anne and family, my thoughts are with you at this time of sorrow. Linda Redshaw Emery
Anne and family,
Having known your father, he was a true joy! He and my Dad, Barry Vroman, shared a special friendship for many years. Rest assured, they are all up there having a party! May they rest in peace and the thoughts and memories we have shall always stay with us.
I grew up in Yarmouth. As friends of my parents, I remember both Mr. and Mrs. Catell as kind people. I hope your sadness is eased by your happy memories. May he rest in peace.
Anne and family,
We were so saddened to hear of Bob's passing. He was a truly remarkable man and to those of us in the Glencross clan, he was our much loved and respected Uncle Bob. The friendship shared by our Dads , then their wives, then children and Grandchildren is a remarkable legacy that we all hold dear. There rarely was a family time that one story or another didn't involve Bob and Bud doing something that brought a smile to all. We hope peace and cherished memories for your entire family.
Our Deepest Sympathy,
Joel & Reita Abbott
I'm sending condolences along to all of Bob's family, on behalf of my dad, Ray Frost, who always held Bob in high esteem during their long N.E. Telephone based friendship. Ray passed away himself on November 6, 2012 at age 94. I have fond memories of deer hunting with Bob and my dad down in Parsonsfield in about 1977. He touched the lives of many people in many ways.
