In Memoriam

Robert Gavin Speirs

Tony got the message yesterday that his father had died in Tillamook, Oregon. He had been quite ill for a couple of years, and Tony had been able to visit him a couple times a year, most recently about a month ago. I never got to know him well, but from all accounts he lived a very colorful, full life with many chapters and many stories to tell. And he brought us Tony!
The early years: with Tony, in Washington state
in Costa Rica (center), circa 1990

His boat, the Scoresby, which was also his nickname in Tillamook
