USAF (Ret.), 73, passed away February 26, 2007. Bob was born March 14, 1933 in Lakewood, OH to Raymond D. and Ruth (Strubhar) Yeck. A witty, gentle and patient man who flew many years as a Navigator for the US Air Force flying several planes including: B-52, C-119, C-121, and his personal favorite C-130 Hercules, logging over 8,000 hours in all planes and a military career that spanned over 35 years. Originally from Lakewood, Ohio he considered himself a semi-native Floridian. He was a graduate of Ohio Wesleyan University and Florida International University. Dad treasured classical music, specifically Mozart, college football (torn between Ohio State and U of Miami Hurricanes), cherished sailing, grilling, reading, nature and more. A husband, a father, a grandfather and dear friend to many, Dad was a generous man who loved us all; you could tell by the smile on his face and the twinkle in his beautiful blue eyes.
