Did you invent thrust vector control? If yes, you are my hero. If not, then I don't care. I hope you lived a wonderful life. Condolences to your loved ones. See you soon in heaven. Your Hans Piesel

I was a young engineer just started at Chandler Evans in West Hartford CT, 24 years old in 1981. Bob and other engineers welcomed me to their lunch table in the cafeteria, and the fascinating stories and discussions shared there every day enlightened me how amazing Bob was in so many ways. To me he was a man's man, a living Earnest Hemingway character. I visited him in Portland once when he was working on his boat, and was there for the launching of Talisman. I still think about him to this day.

I was lucky enough to have Bob for a dock mate at Georgetown Yacht Basin. He told me many stories about his life and adventures. I am grateful for the wisdom he shared. I can hear him saying, "You must do what scares you. There is no other way." This is how he lived his life. What wise and amazing man!

Loved and admired Bob for many many years- his wisdom, good nature, openness, ability to do ANYTHING. He was one of my favourite people, and a wonderful supportive friend.

We were privileged to have met Bob thru May Laura. What a great seaman even in his golden 80s! He was very kind to let us sail with him on the Talisman in Chesapeake Bay. Thank you, Bob and may you rest in peace! Love, Frank & Margarita Abbey (Mary Laura's friends)

May Ed rest within the waves of the sea forever touching the sand of our hearts. I did not know him as well as most but I did know that he was a kind & gentle man.
