Members of the USS Howard W Gilmore Memorial Association offer their sympathy to Bob's family. He has some special friends in the Association who will miss him. Bob Munjas, Bill Gunther,
Roscoe Wise and Mike Blachowicz . I was fortunate to have met Bob at my first reunion in Corpus Christie, TX. and then again in Philadelphia, Pa and Branson, Mo. I talked to Bob Kangas recently and He was remembering special times with Bob Bechtold. It seems he was a special person to touched so many lives and be remembered with admoration after all these years. Fair winds and following seas, shipmate. May you rest in peace.
