His shipmates posted the following comments via email and on the Clan Line Facebook Page

Sad news indeed, we only met on handovers but an excellent ‘lecky’ - Tony Boswell

Sailed with Bob on the Menzies happy memories - John Baines

Sailed with Bob on the McNab summer of 78. I remember the laughter and can still hear him now - Lee Ruane

A real gentleman and a great shipmate, will be missed by many I'm sure - John Sharpley

Very sad indeed, I did fear that he may have passed over the bar as we did not receive a Christmas Card from him last year. A true gentleman and one of the old school.   Ex RN.   He was one of only two Electricians who did a GMDSS Course. I dry-docked a couple of ships with him. - John Clarke - Contracts Manager - Telemar UK Ltd
