So sorry to hear.  Your Dad must have been one great person as I have met you and seen the results.   Just remember to remember the good times.   I was only 20 when My Dad was taken to a better place. :(

   Sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. My Dad got me started with the model airplanes and then the R/C boats. I'm guessing he was with you at some of the Norfolk contests many years ago when you lived here back on the East Coast. Always remember the good times. We are lucky to have them for as long as we do. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

Met Bob thru the "Tiger Team" program when he would visit the Shipyard on projects. We built submarines on different coasts together. Sorry to hear this news. One more good one gone on.

Brought him up to the house once and we sat in my garage and talked for a long time. Tiger Teamers seldom got much time off when on a project. It was either sleeping or working. We did manage to talk when we could.

My thoughts are with you, Joey.
