Bob Platts (theBob) Died

Recommended Posts

hyaku

I regret to inform you all that theBob (Bob Platts) passed away last January. He had been treated for prostate cancer for while.

A very good friend I had spent a lot of time with in Moalboal long before I even moved to the Philippines. We had a lot in common both working in Japan and spending our free time here. Not mention the diving.

Bob my friend you will be sadly missed. Nothing sadder than to see good friends and family pass on that are younger than you.

Me too, I didn't agree with Bob much but respected his right to his different ideas and his conviction.  Sorry to hear he has passed. 

RIP theBob

We had many a skirmish over the years ...but Bob always remained civil.

And even though we were most often opposed on the field of play we still communicated via PM's with him updating me on that dreadful ordeal that he was battling with.

R.I.P. Bob

RIP Bob,

hope the Union Jack flies in the wind at the end of World Cup, for You. (If Sweden doesn't make it  of course)

Bob, you will be missed. Thank you for your wit, your wisdom, and your compassion.

You were a good Man. We are all poorer for your passing.

Although we never met personally, I had always hoped we might one day. 

RIP friend.

PS, Can you please turn it down up there? That SubWoofer is giving me a headache.

God Bless.

RIP Bob. Although I know that Bob didn't expect to go anyplace other than back to dust when he died, I hope he is happy wherever he is.

thebob was my favorite person on this forum.  I had a few chances to meet up with him in Moalboal but it always turned into, 'ah, next time." 

Sometimes there just isn't a next time.

Also never met him in person but very sorry to hear. Extremely knowledgeable, especially about vehicles. Gave me good advice when I was buying one. My condolences.
