Bob Perry's Tragic Loss

All, I just read on SA where Bob Perry - an icon of the sailing world (if you don't know) and a great, great guy - just lost his 30 year old son to a viral infection. Utterly tragic.

Please head over to this thread and let him know sailors everywhere care.

That's terrible news... our thoughts go to him and his family. My wife lost a cousin in a similarly sudden, unexpected loss at a young age too.

I'm utterly gobsmacked by that news. Though I've never met the man I think of him as a friend, a good and gracious man. This is just so sad for him.

Many of you may not know this but Bob was born in Australia and spent his very early years living in Sydney, he still has family here. Some years back I helped him out with some family history stuff and some photographic memorabilia. Through our correspondence I kind of feel we got to know each other a bit. Hearing such wretched news is simply awful.

Condolences to Bob, nothing more tragic or difficult than a parent outliving a child of theirs.

Re: Bob Perry's Tragic Loss

Bob is a good guy from all that I can see, and I hate to see anyone lose a child, that is about as bad as it gets from a parent's point of view. My best wishes to Bob and his family.
