Following is my memorial to Bob "Frogfoot" Weller along with information about the man who was both a great leader but also a legend. by Bradley "Brad" Williamson.
The first time I meet
Bob Weller was about twenty
five years ago when he was forming an expedition to recover the
treasure from a
Spanish galleon that sank
in 1622 with a large cargo of
sunken treasure, the name of the galleon was the
Nuestra Senora de la Margarita.
We were basing the operation out of
Once I meet Bob Weller we quickly became very close and I joined him on the expedition to recover treasure from the 1622 Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de la Margarita. We had some great adventures and exciting times. My life journey continued on with him when we continued to dive for and recover sunken treasure from the 1715 Treasure Fleet which sank between Fort Pierce, FL and Sebastian FL, the 1600’s Almiranta, The 1733 Treasure Fleet which sank in the Florida Keys, our quest to locate and record the last unknown shipwreck of the 1733 Treasure Fleet, the San Fernando and of course our expedition to locate and recover treasure from the richest treasure galleon that ever sank The San Jose, located off the coast of Columbia.

Towards the end I spend a lot of time visiting Bob at the hospital and his wife Margaret never left his side, even in the end. Thankfully I was able to spend some time alone with him before they removed his body so I had my chance to say goodbye in private.
I know that I have some big shoes to fill and I promised my “Dad” that I would make him proud. I have often thought if I was just half the man he was I would consider my life a success. However, I know that Bob Weller is still and will always be a part of my life. Whenever I take the helm of a vessel heading out to sea to find and recover sunken treasure or when I am diving on the bottom of the ocean recovering sunken treasure I know the Bob Weller “Dad” is right there beside me.
