  1. I am very sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I served on my very first crew in the P2V Neptune (VP-21) in Brunswick, ME with Bob. He was a great mentor and I learned a lot from him during my initiation to being on a real aircrew. I was proud to have served with him and have many fond memories of adventures while on deployment.

    Please accept my deepest sympathy.
