Bob Smith GM0BWU – Silent Key

I have just received a message sent to me from Colin GM0CLN to say that his dad passed away this morning (19th April 2017) at Carlingwark House, Castle Douglas.

Bob was a great gentleman and club member who used to attend regular club nights and other club events travelling up from Castle Douglas until age finally caught up with him stopping him from travelling.

As always when these things happen I find on a personal basis difficult to find the words to express how I feel and say.

It goes without saying Bob will be missed by all.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Colin, Susan and Craig and the rest of the family at this time.

Rest in Peace, Bob

FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS BELOW

Just to let you know that, if you or any of the guys are thinking of coming along, Dad’s Funeral will be at Roucan Loch Crematorium, Dumfries, on Friday 28th April starting at 1pm. We’d love it if you could join us afterwards at Edenbank Hotel, 17 Laurieknowe, Dumfries for tea, sandwiches and cakes
