Bob and Kathryn were one of the first couples to welcome us to Harbor Club. We have been privileged to know Bob as a great neighbor, contributor to the Harbor Club environment,and a wealth of knowledge on marine biology, the health of the Banana River, and advice on river cruising in the US. We have admired the strength that Bob and Kathryn have shown through the pain and trauma of these past few months. We miss waving hello to him on his daily, morning kayak trips. We have been praying for you and are ready to help in any way we can. Our deepest sympathy, Bob and Jeanne

I will miss Bob's company and sharing his stimulating conversation. He was such a good friend. I am glad his ordeal is over and he is finally at peace. He leaves many caring friends. Our thoughts are with you, Kathy.

Dear Friend Kathy, sharing in your sadness as you remember Bob and my deepest condolences go out to you and family. I can’t think of Bob without seeing that big bright smile that was like a giant ray of sunshine in our lives. Like his smile he was so affable, easy to be with and true to his heart. I know Bob had the absolute best, constant loving care a husband could ever have with you by his side. He is gone too soon and will be missed for a long, long time.

Our deepest sympathies to Kathy, Jake and his family, and Bonnie and her family. I loved Bob, he was a major influence in my youth and was so glad we reconnected later in life. I will miss him terribly.

I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Bob long enough. However in the short time that I knew him I gravitated towards him, looking forward to seeming him around the yard or doing his daily routine. I looked forward to our conversations and was intrigued about his life story starting in marine biology and making his way to be a Captain. I wish I had the chance to know him longer, but feel grateful for the time I did have.

My life was blessed knowing Bob . He had a real green thumb. Loved riding his bike , boating & spending time outside with nature . He fought hard to over come but God had other plans . He truly will be missed . To me he was like a big brother . I won’t forget these last 2 years. May you watch over us all. Rest now my friend . No more suffering for you . Let us remember all the great times we all shared . You were loved by all who knew you . I’ll miss you my friend .
