I spoke on the telephone earlier in the week with Bob's wife Karen, and extended my sympathies to her and all of their family members who will miss Bob's gracious presence, just like we will at the club.
Bob was churning up some ice-cream in the workshop and came back inside complaining of not feeling well, and was taken by ambulance to the hospital where he suffered the heart attack and passed away.
No doubt Bob flew on Angels wings to be with his loved ones that awaited his arrival there.
I plan on being at the field Sunday to fly in Bob's memory and to commemorate his great passion and devotion to his flying, and his unwavering assistance to furthering the club for everyone's benefit.
His wife Karen informed me that she donated all of Bob's RC equipment and aircraft to one of his family members that expressed an interest in learning how to fly RC aircraft, so that his beautiful handiwork and great skill can be enjoyed yet still by his family.
Anything related to the club that needed done Bob went through with it and made it happen, and most times it was done without anyone even having to ask him first. He was one to count on that is for certain.
Please let me know if you are going Sunday, or just show up then.
I only have a couple or so pictures of Bob, and would certainly enjoy anyone else that has pictures of him, to please feel free to share them with everyone on the website here, as you see fit to do.
Thanks again everyone, and I hope to see you at the field Sunday morning,
Mark J. Sullivan
