Fort Gratiot Keeper Bob Hanford in hospital

A forum to discuss lighthouses in the US Great Lakes Region
(Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and the lake lighthouses of New York & Pennsylvania)

Friday morning April 16th, Bob Hanford, long time keeper of the Fort Gratiot lighthouse, was departing the hospital after completing his dialysis treatment, when all of a sudden he went down, breaking his hip, arm and a couple fingers.

Until the doctors determine if he can have surgery, he must remain in Port Huron Hospital. It would be wonderful if fellow Great Lakes lighthouse lovers who have toured the tower with Bob in the past would send him get well cards to let him know how much we appreciate his dedicated service over the years.

Mail your cards to: Port Huron Hospital, attn: Bob Hanford - Room 652, 1221 Pine Grove Avenue, Port Huron, Michigan 48060

Thanks

Rather sad news indeed. Bob is the soul at Ft. Gratiot, I can only hope the best for him.

According to an article in today's Port Huron Times Herald, Bob had surgery Wednesday, and will not be allowed to have visitors for the next few days. nothing further was mentioned. I may try calling the Port Huron hospital Monday and see if I can talk with him.
