Paddy has left us!

Sad news for many. Bob was one year ahead of me at HMAS NIRIMBA. Later we spent a couple of years together in HMAS SUPPLY and, still later, he was DMEO of HMAS BRISBANE whilst I was DMEO of HMAS HOBART.

A great guy who will be sadly missed.

I spoke to Galena yesterday morning and tried Bobs mobile as he was in hospital, so this comes as a shock. I have been talking to Bob to ensure he was able to manage during our next reunion and he was very positive about joining in for part of it.
So sad and such a shame that a good guy has been taken from us.

Dear Friends,
Another of our colleagues has died. Bob died today, we received a message from Galena so it is very sad news indeed, not unexpected but we would have hoped for a little more time together. So you people, stay vertical and take care and I shall see you in Adelaide.
Warmest Wishes
Helen and Warren Baker

Another MOBI taken too soon... Rest on your oars, Bob, your journey is done... [-o<
