This year the Bisbee family is sadly mourning the loss of Bob Bisbee, who passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 14th in Dallas, Texas. A statement from the Bisbee family explains “Bob was born on March 6, 1933 in Excelsior Springs, Missouri. He moved to California in 1958 where he met and married his wife of 58 years, Aina, in 1960. Orange County was his home for the following decades where much of this time he could always be found at his fuel dock and tackle store on Balboa Island in Newport Harbor. In the mid-60s, this SoCal fishing and boating connection led him to many personal and business ventures in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, which became his favorite place on earth. It is also where he created and maintained the majority of his life-long and numerous friendships. Bob is best known and respected for founding the Bisbee’s Black & Blue Marlin Tournament in Cabo San Lucas, now in its 38th year.” For more information visit http://www.bisbees.com.
