Judy and family. Sorry to hear this news, I had no idea of his illness.
Did not know you all had moved back to the Valley.
I will never forget us being in the ship channel, and the ship on top of us. Bob was so cool and relaxed
Even when we got hauled into Aransa Pass.
We left them on the sailboat and you and I got a room.
Bob was so funny that morning. We all sat around and laughed.
That is how I remember Bob the best.
God Bless you all.

He had such a great sense of humor,and I can still hear him saying when we met " boy, I have been worrying about you "

RIP Bob, there is no need to file IFR,'s clear and unlimited visibility all the way !!!!

to the Abbott family, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Mr & Mrs. Abbott were always so kind to open their doors to let us teen age kids have sleep overs with Missy after skating on a Saturday night. Condolences, Brenda M. (Doty) Harris.
