Bob worked for may years for the Waterboard as a water bailiff and following meeting his second wife he began woking for Methodist Guild Holiday Hotels, this saw him work around the country including spending time in Scotland and St Ives. Bob also spent time running anĀ  old peoples home for the partially sighted. Bob’s passion was travelling and over the years has travelled the globe enjoying trips to New Zealand, America, Malta and France enjoying some rest and relaxation and enjoying the local sights and culture often visiting for several months at a time.

I have lived next door to Bob for 13years, a lovely man. We spent many hours talking, laughing and reminising. I will miss him so very much
