I received this from the president of the International Association of Dive Rescue Specialists this morning. I knew Bob personally and I can't begin to tell you what a loss this is to our community. It is with a heavy heart that I pass along the following e-mail I received this morning. "Bob Teather passed away at 06:30 AM (EST) today. There will be no service as he did not want to burden his friends with travel. His wife Susan will still be using his e-mail address if you want to send her a note." Bob Teather was a founding member of the International Association of Dive Rescue Specialists and a lifetime member. Bob was the author of the "Encyclopedia of Underwater Investigation" and spoke on this subject at many IADRS Conferences. He was a generous person who shared his knowledge by contributing articles to the IADRS newsletter and by lecturing "on the road" as a corporate trainer for Dive Rescue International. Most importantly, Bob Teather was a friend and many will miss him. As you read this e-mail, please give a moment of reflection to our Canadian friend whom many refer to as THE AMBASADOR OF PUBLIC SAFETY DIVING, Bob Teather.
