Deepest condolences to Bob's family and friends. He and Heather were amazing Godparents to my children and we enjoyed many visits when the children were small.
I remember vividly how excited Bob was to learn that Peter and Judy were his siblings. It was as if he was given the sun, moon and the stars.
Rest easy, Bob. Heather and you will be together again. You will be missed.

Annette, David

We are so saddened to have learned of Bob’s passing.

Brian knew Bob & his children growing up in the Pubs during his childhood.
Later in life, they became co-workers at Steel and Engine Products where they were all like family.
This relationship continued throughout the years.

We will miss your smile and laughter, but will remember our times together.

To the Family; Keep your Dad’s; Grandfather’s memory close to your hearts and talk about him... always. He will be forever by your side.
With much sympathy and love,
Judy and Brian

On behalf of all of us at Aberdeen Hall, just wanted to send our condolences. Bob was a lovely person and we enjoyed his friendship while he lived with us at Parkland. He was my "neighbour", just a few doors down from my office and we often stopped to chat. Our thoughts go to you.
