On behalf of the United States Submarine Veterans (USSVI), we offer our sincere condolences to Dan (Janet), Jennifer (Jim), Caroline (David), Pedar (Laurie) and Timothy (Dawn), and all of Robert's family and friends in this time of mourning. May God bless you with peace, comfort, and the healing of your broken hearts. We are especially thankful for Robert's courageous service to our country in the U.S. Submarine Service during WWII. He served on the USS R-16 SS-93 R-16 YN3 1943, USS R-4 SS-81 YN2(SS) 1943-44, USS Thornback SS-418 YN1(SS) 1944-46, Plankowner, War Patrol 1 and left the Navy as a YN1(SS). He was also a member of the United States Submarine Veterans WWII (WA 1964). To our “Brother of the Dolphin” we say … "Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch. May you rest in peace and may God bless your loved ones who remain. Thank you for your service to our country."
So, heavenly Father add his name to the roll
Of our departed shipmates still on patrol.
Let them know that we who survive
Will always keep their memories alive.
Bless those who serve beneath the deep,
Through lonely hours their vigil keep.
May peace their mission ever be!
Protect each one, we ask of Thee.
Bless those at home who wait and pray
For their return by night and day.
