In Memorium Bob Harasim, 19?? - 2006

Our fellow CSI member and friend Bob Harasim passed away Saturday September 17, 2006.

Bob had been troubled with severe stomach pains for over a year now, with no relief from the doctors. He finally went in for surgery on Friday, I believe, at the University of Michigan Medical School. I don't know what happened, but something obviously went very much awry and we have lost one of the most genuinely nice men I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

"Coyote" Bob was an avid mountainman re-enactor, a good amateur smith and a truly premier flintknapper. I will forever cherish the gorgeous novaculite spear point Bob gave me at QuadState two years ago. His passing is a damn shame, but he leaves us richer for having known him.

We will drink a toast to Bob at QuadState and remember him well and fondly. Resquiat in pacem, Bob.
