If you hadn’t heard, Bob Kay (our former neighbour) passed away on Saturday 4th April.
Paul Murray sent this; “I spoke to Jean who confirmed he died peacefully, and holding on to a letter that Jean had written to him which gave her great comfort. Bob was a lovely man with an infectious smile, and a wonderful neighbour to Karen & I for over 20 years.”
I, your editor, first met Bob in 1989, just before we moved to the village – he was an architect and was engaged on a couple of projects for my, then, company – Harris Distribution. Bob was one of those people who you don’t forget – kind, softly spoken and unassuming, he was the epitome of a gentleman. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Our thoughts go to Jean and his family – RIP Bob.
Bob’s funeral will be a family only affair on St George’s day, with a maximum of 10 people allowed to attend. Jean is in remarkably good spirits but will obviously be going through a wide range of emotions, including relief and great sadness. We offer our profound condolences.
