Master Chief was my mentor, and my biggest fan. He believed in me, inspired me, and pushed me. He also knew which buttons to push. He loved his Navy, his family, and would do anything for anyone ... Thank you Master Chief for all the memories. Will miss you Bobby. Susan Rozar YNC Retired

YNCM(SS) was my mentor and dear brother. From the day I met him, I never made a consequential decision without consulting him first. Among many happy memories: Washington Nationals ballgame. Submarine reunions. Visits every week at Crystal City when I worked for NNS&DD Co. Visited Bobby recently and gave him a photograph showing Yankee Stadium and the Polo Grounds. He loved the NY Giants baseball club. His passing is a huge loss to the Submarine Community. We'll never see the likes of him again. Love ya Bobby! Keith Barber LCDR (Submarines), USN (Ret.)

I, too had the honor of serving with Bobby at "BUPERS" in the '80s. What a great guy. Always funny. Always professional. Always a Shipmate. He was always available for advice. He kept us on our toes. He was always asking the right questions about tough assignment considerations. What I think I remember the most is the 'fatherly' look - "What were you thinking??? Anyone having the pleasure of serving with Bobby knows exactly what look I'm describing.
Rest your oar, Shipmate. We have the watch.
My sincerest condolences to the family and all his friends and former Shipmates.

Bob has received his final orders from the supreme commander and is now on Eternal Patrol. I am Gary Vernon and I served with Bob in 67/68. He was a good shipmate and friend. And as Bill Brown states, we who wear the dolphins are Brothers. Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch.

We are brothers ~~ we just have different mothers. When you pin these dolphins to your uniform, you are joining a very unique fraternity…The Brotherhood of Submariners!

I am Bill Brown. Earned my dolphins in August of 1966. Retired as a Senior Chief ET in 1986…

Some know us....Some do not....But Submarine Sailors ~~ "Tried, Tested, and Qualified" are a close bunch of Merry Renegades....This phrase from Shakespeare says it best....

“He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart.
But we in it shall be remembered.
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!!!
For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.”
RIP brave sailor, you have not been forgotten.

The submarine service is strictly voluntary. In fact there is a psychological battery that you must take before you commence training. The folks in charge just never said whether you had to pass it or fail it…

With the loss of THRESHER in 1963, popular psychologist Dr. Joyce Brothers stated about the brotherhood of submariners:
"They know themselves a little better than the next man. They are generally a bit healthier emotionally than others of similar age and background, because of their willingness to push themselves a little bit further and not settle for an easier kind of existence. We all have tremendous capabilities but are rarely straining at the upper level of what we can do, these men are. The country can be proud and grateful that so many of its sound, young, eager men care enough about their own status in life -- and the welfare of their country -- to pool their skills and match them collectively against the power of the sea."

RIP My Brother ~~ No More Pain

Bobby and I served together as enlisted detailers at the Submarine Distribution Office. He was my deputy, a good man and a true friend, we were brothers having served on submarines throughout are careers. I will miss his steadfast council until we meet again on the other side my friend, rest in peace. May the Lord bless you and keep you! LCDR Scott MacDonald (PNCM(SS) Ret
