    Update on a fellow hunter

    todays update on scuba detector (Robert) from his daughter.

    NEW UPDATE 7-25-21 ScubaDetector
    8am ?
    7/25 Update
    Our dad coded early this morning. We got the call at 5:45am. He is still hanging on. My sister Shelly and I called all family and then rushed over to the hospital. We are still fighting with them to allow us to see our dad. We've been sitting in the parking lot since. Just waiting for the call.
    To the gentleman in the white F-150 hauling Foam board who stopped and gave us a hug, I am so sorry we didn't catch your name, but that truly meant so much to us. So thank you, and we hope you have an amazing day!! - Seana

    0930 update:
    . Hi, I’m one of Robert’s AKA scuba detector daughters. My sister was called at 3 am this morning with the most horrific news we could ask for. My dads lungs are too scared for him to recover. He is still alive but they had to put him on a paralytic so they can keep his oxygen up. The scars are too bad and not allowing oxygen through.

    I am sorry to hear this, my sincere condolences to the family.

    I've been steadfast in getting the word out on the dangers of Covid and will continue the good fight and received a heartfelt message from a member on here saying that my posting on Covid helped in making their decision to get the vaccine. Though even a vaccine doesn't guarantee your complete safety, it's the best tool we have to fight it at this time. Some too can't get the vaccine due to underlying health reasons, so we all need to be mindful of these folks, so that we don't unnecessarily expose them to risk.

    Thanks also goes out to all the medical workers who are busting their butts to help save people, they are truly heroes!

    Well " COVID after" will probably fit here in this report where as one of our fellow metal detector friends has moved on to the land of great detecting.
    Robert "Scuba detector" has moved on after the long fight with covid. Bless you my friend.

    Robert is/was an active member of another detecting forum I am a Mod on.

    He has always been so helpful to everyone he comes across!

    Such a very sad situation for his family.

    The final word from his daughter: Just updated by Robert's daughter ScubaDetector
    13m ?
    Dad passed away peacefully a little after noon. Our hearts are broken deeply. As he always said "live your best life", and that, he most definitely did!! Ironically enough, today marks the 15 year anniversary that we lost our mom, his beloved wife Alison!! I have no doubt in my mind she welcomed him with the happiest of smiles and the biggest damn hug possible!! I am so thankful to have had the best father out there! The most humble, caring, compassionate, goofy, big hearted man ever!! He will be greatly missed by all!! We will be transporting our dad to Utah where he will be buried next to mom. We plan on holding a celebration of his life out here once that has taken place. His memories and infectious laugh will live on forever. Again, if you have anything to share about my dad, please send it to sgrattan@mcc.edu. Thank you!! ❤��❤ -
