Sorry to hear about your loss - he really was a lovely man and I always stayed longer to chat with him than I really had time for just because….
Rob - say hi to my dad!
I remember meeting Rob for the first time at Rose Bruford when he came for his interview - all smart in his blue blazer and we hit it off straight away! We always had a laugh and I miss having a good old gossip with him. One of my lasting memories was laughing at him driving his car straight through the College Reception as he waved at me going through! What a character and such a lovely man. RIP Rob xxx
I had the pleasure of meeting Robert on a few occasions. I fondly remember him showing me around his splendidly converted garage and chatting about his past work etc over a cup of tea. Thank you for restoring a couple of my programmes to the highest standard transforming them from only just collectable into items which now have pride of place in my collection.

We would like to thank the family and friends that attended our Fathers funeral this week. We like to thank each and everyone for their well wishes and for their kind and touching comments about our Father. We were truly blessed to have such a well thought after Father who made an impression on so many of you. May he now finally rest in peace as his suffering is over.
We thank you all, for your love and support and for the pictures and stories of him too! They brighten the darkest days x
A true gentleman, every time we met up he would have a smile for you.
His family rightly proud of Rob as he was of them.
A lovely man with a lovely family.
I will miss my dear friend.

Great bloke, great colleague. Your presence around Rose Bruford has been very much missed, and will continue to be. RIP mate. x
Rob always made me smile with tales of his travelling and wonderful stories about the British Library. A generous, kind and big hearted man who is greatly missed at Rose Bruford. My love to your family and thank you for the chats. xx
What a lovely service yesterday. A fine and fitting tribute to a true gentleman. His total commitment and love to his family. His strong work ethics and also his humour. Rob never changed in all the years I knew him and I will miss our chats...long chats.
Rest in Peace
I will miss our chats Rob. Tales of your travels, framing pictures and of course family. The picture you framed hangs in my house. Your kindly personality remains framed in my memory. Peace to you and to your family, whom I know you loved so dearly.
Rob will be greatly missed by all of his friends and colleagues at Rose Bruford. I remember so many cheery conversations, so much help... and the best picture framer ever! Bon voyage, dear Rob.
a top fella, proud of his kids and a good husband,knew how to make a pound note and loved life.sadsley missed but never forgotten,rip rob
My memories of Rob all include a twinkle in his eye, sharp observations and his sardonic wit. I really enjoyed his conversation and his stories about his time at the British library. A real character whom I was honoured to meet. Rest in peace Rob.
A wonderful colleague, wonderful to work with, nothing was too much trouble, he'd help in any way he could. Very sadly missed. Condolences to his family.
