Noel PAYNE has informed us that one of our founding members of the FESR Navy Association, Bob GIBBS passed away at the Free Masons Palliative Care facility in
Hobart on the 15th November 2013 at 1750 hours.

Bob was well cared for in the Free Masons Home for Palliative care; Cathy (Catherine) is in the same aged facility.
I would urge members to reflect on the work Bob did for all of us…as I said at tweed Heads address :
"Admiral Peek, Admiral Hudson, Bob Gibbs, Dr Carroll and Roger deLisle were the main game in FESR".
