Bill, Ed Norris  (ExGSI ship's captain)  just  informed  me
that  92  year old Robert Y. Stair had passed away in Ocala
Florida on September 10, 2009.

Bob was well known in GSI for  his  association  with  "The
Grapevine Magazine".  He  and his wife Jerry lived in Ocala
the past several years.  Jerry passed away about  10  years
ago.

"Le Lazy Stair", as he was known in The Grapevine, had worked with GSI
in South America and the North Sea before transferring to Curacao with
Texas Instruments.
