Not sure what to say?

Thank you for being a great role model.

My sincere condolences to the family for your loss,

Please take comfort from the promise found at
Job 33:25.
My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

I was very close to Robert in the years he was at the Pasadena Playhouse. And then after both of us moved to Hollywood. He was a handsome talented man. May he rest in peace. Sorry to hear of his passing.

I never get tired of watching Robert Dowdell on Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Sometimes I would have a difficult time taking orders at my job. But watching Chip Morton and the rest of the crew always puts me back on track. Thank you Bob for having such a strong positive influence in my life. You were a most talented actor who I think was born to play Chip Morton. May you rest in peace!

I thought Robert was a fine actor, and in the case of Voyage To The Bottom of the Sea he brought more to the role than the writers usually put into the dialogue and scripts, with a simple look or a voice inflection. Irwin Allen got much more than his money's worth from him, and we got a lot more than we ever figured on as viewers. He will be missed.

DEARLY LOVED SADLY MISSED I AM HEARTBROKEN AT YOUR LOSS
A TRULY KIND WONDERFUL PERSON

I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family for their loss of a talented man. I hope you find comfort and help in God during this time of sorrow.
