In loving memory of Good Wraps Bob! 10/28/1942 – 05/10/2023 Gone Fishing! I’ve finished life’s chores assigned to me, So put me on a boat headed out to sea. Please send along my fishing pole For I’ve been invited to the fishin’ hole. Where every day is a day to fish, To fill your heart with every wish. Don’t worry, or feel sad for me, I’m fishin’ with the Master of the sea. We will miss each other for awhile, But you will come and bring your smile. That won’t be long you will see, Till we’re together you and me. To all of those that think of me, Be happy as I go out to sea. If others wonder why I’m missin’ Just tell ’em I’ve gone fishin’ By Dalmar Pepper Robert Balcombe was an avid fisherman here on the Harbor. He built custom reels and rods for years.
