I'm so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. After running at a Sands race it was Bob who invited me to run at Holmfirth Harriers and that was it, I was hooked! We went on some great cross country runs back then and I hope I will never forget them. Bob was such an easy going friendly man and was so well thought of by everyone who met him. Thank you Bob and Rest in Peace xp

  • I loved your stories about travelling and running, they were always better the second time round. You were so loved and will be missed terribly, especially by Ben and Holly. Rest in peace Robert xxx
