Default Shocked!

As mentioned by another post, I read the D&C article hoping it was not one of our own. I'm stunned and deeply saddened. I never met Don but we communicated by emails and posts on OSO. On behalf of myself and the entire Rochester Offshore Powerboat Association we extend our deepest sympaties and condolences to his family, loved ones, friends and his community at the Seneca Powerboat Association.
Godspeed , Don!

My condolences to the Roberts family. He was a great family man, provided a wealth of knowledge to us all and his memory will live on here in his many posts continuing to contribute to the boating community as he always has.
