Our father, Bill Nott, was a long-time acquaintance of Dr. "Gordy", both of them being boatowners and sportfishermen. Upon our father's passing in 1997, Gordy graciously took many of the Nott family members to Catalina on the "Fighting Lady" to spread Dad's ashes. We did this, but we also made an outstanding catch of yellowtail and calico bass...just as if Dad was looking down on us.
On behalf of the Nott Family, I wish to express our condolenaces to his 5 children and the rest of the Bateman family. He was a very nice man, great doctor and humanitarian; a real credit to our society.
