Robert Slynn ‘Bob’

Bob passed away peacefully with his grandchildren by his side at the Royal Blackburn Hospital on 19th November 2022 aged 90 years and of Great Harwood. The devoted husband of the late Joan, loving dad of the late David, adored and cherished grandad of Andrew and his fiancée Lucy, Catherine and Abigail, great-grandad of Joshua, Lucia, Eliza and Joey, dear brother of Jim and the late George and also a dear uncle and respected relative to many.

Bob began his working life as an apprentice printer in Blackburn and later worked for the Accrington Observer and the Lancashire Telegraph. He was an avid sport follower and loved football and cricket. In his younger years he loved to go and watch his favourite team Blackburn Rovers and was a member of Rishton Cricket Club. Bab loved to socialise and enjoyed a drink with friends, he could chat about anything to anyone and he could bridge generation gaps with ease. Travel was a firm favourite with Bob and over the years he has travelled around the globe with his wife and soulmate Joan. Bob was the most doting family man and he loved nothing more than spending time with those closest to him.
