MacNaughton, Robert Bruce "Bob"  
Bob left port on his last voyage on March 31, 2015 after 69 trips around the sun. He left suddenly and unexpectedly as a result of a heart attack after having been dancing just the night before. He was born in Kingsport, TN on September 22, 1945, the middle child of Norman William MacNaughton and Esther Caroline Curtis MacNaughton. Bob played the clarinet at Dobyns-Bennett High School in Kingsport. In college he majored in water skiing with minors in math, physics and chemistry. He was a member of the non-secret but very exclusive math honor society Phi Mu Epsilon. He graduated from so many colleges he was virtually assured of having a winning football team every weekend during the season (Northwestern University, BS, Math; University of Washington, MS, Solid State Physics; University of Tennessee, PhD, Inorganic Chemistry ; University of Florida, certificate of attendance because he decided not to complete a program in Physics). He earned his Marine Captain's license and piloted a 35 foot Carver boat. In between SCUBA diving the seven seas and spending considerable time on live-aboards, his career was spent as an engineer building semi-conductors used in computers and solar panels. Bob married Carol Dillard in 1982 in New Orleans, LA. After around the world adventures, they parted ways in 2008. Bob had the taste of volunteerism in his blood. Among the many T-shirts he acquired, the Super Bowl, Wrestlemania, Women's BB Final Four, NBA All-Star Game, New Orleans Beer Fest, New Orleans Wine and Food Experience and French Quarter Festival represent only a few. He volunteered at the Maritime Museum in San Diego and served as a member of the sailing crew of the 'Star of India'. He was chief judge at the Deer Lake Jug Band Boogie held near Effie, in northern Minnesota. Bob was a Wildcat-Husky-Volunteer-Gator fan who converted to LSU Tiger-ism because he wanted to spend more time with his sweetheart, Jill. He appreciated good food and beverages and always carried a well-worn Zagat's guide. He could be counted on for expert knowledge of Austin's and New Orlean's best restaurants. Bob enjoyed India Pale Ales and could often be found out on the dance floor with Jill, in front of a live band. Every year Bob competed in the St. Valentine's Day Massacre map contest and was invariably the champion of whatever state he was living in at the time. He had a brief career as an actor and was cast as an extra in 'Bonnie and Clyde' and as the star in 'Love Bites'. He is survived by his sister Margie McArthur and her husband Peter, brother Jimmy MacNaughton and his wife Yumiko, niece Nicole Vasilevsky and her husband Aran Loftus, and nephews Steve and Michael Vasilevsky not to mention many cousins and aunts. He was preceded in death by his parents and his dog Bo. He also left a huge hole in the heart of his significant other, Jill Johnson, and his surrogate granddaughter, Claire Alice McClure not to mention the other members of Jill's large blended family including especially her sons Nicholas McClure and his wife Lacey, Patrick McClure and his wife Amanda, and Jesse McClure and his wife Abby. Bob walked the walk when it came to making the most of every day. There just weren't enough days. We just wanted more days. Bob was a supporter of the Land Trust for Louisiana ( http://www.landtrustforlouisiana.org/ ) and the Unitarian Church of Baton Rouge (http://www.unitarianchurch br.com/ ). In lieu of flowers, you might consider donating to either of these worthwhile institutions in his name. A memorial celebration will be held on April 27, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. at the Unitarian Church of Baton Rouge, 8470 Goodwood Boulevard, Baton Rouge, LA.
