Having contacted the family…Bob's funeral will be at 12.30. on Tuesday the 9th of September at 'The Robin Hood Crematorium.'….Any plans for a Wake thereafter will I am sure be passed on to those interested on the day.
Bob was a true Rugby fan. Having played for 'Broughton Park' before he went to Art School in Birmingham, where in fact I met him before I joined Moseley.
On one particular day I remember…as students we were always skint, Bob was due to go to his bank in Gosta Green for an overdraft…& feeling quite buoyant he breezed in only to find the manager at the time was one David Duckham!…His heart sank, as Cov. had been beaten that very week end by Broughton Park! Duckham immediately noticed Bob's B.Park tie which he had hoped to impress the manager with…..Well! after a silence which to Bob lasted for an hour or two…& after Duckham & Bob had chewed over the week end's game….Duckham said "Well! you are not the sort of risk I would normally invest the Banks money in…But what choice have I got? Have one for me!!….Bob breezed out with his money & joined me in 'The Old Contemptibles' to celebrate the occasion!
