George Herbert Estabook, known to all of us as 'Bert', was a highly intelligent man. He became a drafter and at an early age worked for Lockheed Aircraft, then Lockheed Missile Division. He was well known within the government as the one that developed the first coating to go on spacecraft. His picture and accomplishments hang in the Pentigan in Wash. D. C. He became one of the three main bosses of Lockheed Missile Division in Sunnyvale, California.

He did marry at an early age to a woman named Ruth. Last name unknown. They divorced in the late 1960's. He then married my Aunt, Marge Bandy Greenwood, and they lived the rest of their lives in a dream retirement until he became too ill to remain home, and had to go into a nursing home the last couple of years of his life.

Bert was an avid sailor. Always owned a sailboat, and loved to race on the water. He and Marge spent 6 months at one time bringing a 50' sailboat around from the Florida coast to just north of San Francisco, California for a friend of his. They also sailed up thru the waterways of Canada, down to Mexico, and they were both in their element on the water.

He also had a hobby of photography, and his photographs were outstanding. Needless to say, when he did anything, he did it to perfection.

Bert and Marge started their honeymoon with a small motor home, trailing a boat (the 'Why Not'), and they sold their last RV which was a 5th wheeler just months before he was unable to travel anymore.
