It saddens me to find myself writing in this forum the announcement of Mr. Bob Cranston's passing.....Bob Cranston passes away at home yesterday due to Cancer. Bob had inspired so many in our community and became friend to many....For those of us that had the good fortune to know Bob, there are too many stories and words to describe such a great guy and true friend. It's quite remarkable when you can think of not one person that did not like someone...Bob WAS that guy. Liked by all in an instant and a genuine "good ole boy"....
We lose not only an underwater legend of our era, but a truly generous, giving and warm hearted human being. A man that had touched so many in our community and inspired myself and countless others. I can't think of a more generous and just downright great guy than Bob. There are so many stories.....and for now i'll let this community share their stories and remarks about a GREAT GUY that happens to have shot underwater film and video and shared unselfishly his knowledge to all that asked.
Here's to you Bob! You will be missed dearly, yet thought of often. A toast to your wonderful journey and thanks for the memories.
