Robert (Bob) Lewis

It is with deep regret that I have to report the sudden death of long standing member Robert (Bob) Lewis, aged 80. Bob has been a member of this club for over twenty years and attended many runs and visits organised by the club over this period. I first encountered Bob when I started work at Watts of Lydney, Bob worked in the machine shop where he reconditioned cylinder heads for diesel and petrol engines. It was here that I was told that he had spent some time in Africa with his mother and father, Bob could speak some Swahili and could be heard saying “passé passé on many occasions.  Bob married Jenny Hale and soon started a family living in Lydney. Most of you will remember that Jenny became our events and minute secretary. I’m sure all of you will join the committee in sending our sincere condolences  to Jenny, Helen and Heather at this sad time.
