Robert Dick van Houten Wish to advise the passing of Robert
Dick van Houten, who was a long time  GSI  man, joined back
in the 60ís with the marine vessels in  the  North  Sea.  I
believe  he was on the Sea Search in days when there was an
explosives vessel working in conjunction with the recording
vessel. Dick was an instrument engineer.

I first met him in 1968 in Medan - Sumatra where he was the  presiding
field  serviceman  looking after several seismic crews in that part of
the world, he later moved into administration and management where  he
had various assignments in Jakarta, Singapore and in Nigeria.

Dick was diagnosed with lung cancer in February of this year, and  was
given  two months to live, he managed to fight till October 15 when he
passed.

Best regards - Dick Batina
