Quietly and at home is all I know. Very nice and knowledgeable sailor. I remember not long ago when he finally posted the story of his escape/rescue from that hurricane. Fair winds...

I did not know Robert, but certainly knew of him--what a kind gentleman he seemed to be. The world dims with the passing of his light.

Rest in peace, Robert.

I'm very sad to hear this. My sincere condolences to his family and friends. His name on a post would make me take a look at it because I could always count on learning something. Sorry I never had the chance to meet him.

I am both shocked and saddened to learn of his passing. I worked with Bob a bit last year helping supply some information need for his boat. I found him both an extreamly knowledgeable sailor and a true gentleman. He will be sorely missed by all that had the opportunity to cross paths with him.

Personally, until I started researching ...understood the impact..

Obviously he was impactful and yet under the covers... meaning he had no issue with promoting and not carrying his name his self because it was always his action that defined him... I wish more could be like him myself...

There are a few online here that carry that tradition without being named... some I have been lucky to be in contact with.. and it goes without saying - and I echo the sentiments of others..."May the fair sea you sailed in life be even more humbled in your presence on your new journey..."

Fair winds ....

I was just talking about him yesterday with a fellow I met outside Home Depot. That fellow mentioned that he had been declared dead twice, and even has a toe tag from one of the times. I mentioned that I knew a fellow that had read his own obituary in a magazine. I then got to thinking that I had not seen any posts for a while.

You will be missed Robert. Fair winds, and all the best.
