Bob taught me to fly in the 1970s - he nurtured my interest in aviation and inspired me to soar to heights, literally and metaphorically. He was a great aviator, inspiring mentor and he had a great sense of humour. The world is a sadder place now that Bob Foreman isn’t with us. Fondly remembered Greg

Andrew Carrick -

Dear Pat, Michael & Peter, We are sorry to hear of Bob’s passing and the fact that we can’t make it from Hong Kong to be there with you all in Adelaide today. Bob had a big part in many peoples’ lives and aviation careers mine included. As my Uncle - we’re going to miss him, but as we know he would want us all to crack on. Looking forward to catching up back home in the next few months. Cheers Andrew, Mandy, Imogen & Ryan

Richard Skinner -

Sorry I couldn’t be there in person Bob. I have Covid. You were one of my first instructors at Gawler, so I’ve known you a very long time. So sad that you’ve gone but you gave it a serious nudge before you did. I’m going to miss you, the Monday mob will miss you and the club is poorer for your passing. To Pat and the family my sincerest condolences. You will miss him most of all no doubt. Vale.

Peter Phillips -

So sorry I couldn’t be there Bob. I am in the UK.

Paul Doube -

My father and Bob's father served together in the Air Force in WW11, and as a result I became very good friends with Bob's family, and younger sister June in particular. Through that contact I met Bob, and it was Bob that gave me my first very (nervous) flight in a glider. I remember Bob as a funny and interesting man, and one who was caring of others, as evidenced by his support of me in my early years. While I have not had contact with Bob (or June) for more than half a lifetime, I remember well his kindness towards me and recognise the loss his family must feel at this sad time. Rest in Peace Paul Doube

Len Wight -

Sorry Bob, I could not make it as I am home sick with Peumonia. Your Service brought many great memories, such as when we were at school Grade 1. Servicing of the Motor Falk and the first time you took me flying and I was sick. Wiring up the Link Trainer Room at North Adelaide etc, etc. Rest in Peace Bob

Tim Booth -

Remembering Bob with great affection - some of my earliest childhood memories are in the motor faulke with Bob flying with me sitting on Mum's lap. Many happy weekends spent at Gawler in the late 70s watching Dad and Bob instruct the Air Cadets. A Great friend of the Booth Family, Bob will be dearly missed. Condolences to Pat, Michael and Peter Tim Booth

Patricia Irvine -

Thankyou for all you did for so many people at ASC, including all the tows you gave me and my late husband. I’m sorry that I couldn’t attend today’s service. It was heartwarming and revealing. I didn’t know that you were a kelpie man. As another kelpie person, I send an appreciative wag from my present recycled kelpie, Colt.

Thousands of people pass through our lives, most without impact. Bob was unforgettable, a true generous mate who was more of a brother to me. Blue skies Bob.. l will never forget you. Rest peacefully now. With warmest regards Mike AMDG
