Bob "BikerBob" has passed away

Postby CXDeluxeGav » Thu Dec 10, 2015 6:20 pm

I am the bearer of the sad news that gramps (Bob) passed away last night in Torbay hospital after suffering with cancer.

Gramps very much loved his CX and more importantly the friends and frolics over the years he has had with all of us who met up to share this - looking forward every year to several rallies where we could all meet up and talk shop and other things. When his health was deteriorating he was so happy that he mustered the strength to get out for one last ride around north devon.

His funeral will be held at the Torbay Cremetorium on Tuesday 22nd of December at 2.45 pm you are all welcome (maybe we could might even get a few CX's there!). We will ask anyone thinking of flowers instead to make a donation to the RSPA if that is their wish.

Thankyou from all the family

Sad news, I'm so very sorry. I never met Bob, but he was well known and loved by the members of this club. My best wishes go to all who knew and loved him.

So sorry to hear this.

A real gent and a great member of the club - its a great regret of mine that I never made it to one of his Devon Rallies.

Sincere condolences to Sue and the family at what must be a great loss.
