It is with great sadness that I write to inform you of the recent passing of Bob Yates.

Bob was a Lintek representative and was a lovely guy. He was a regular attendant at my counter in the 80s, flogging us everything he could. Larry Riches, (Lintek), was his boss and closest friend. Like myself we have both taken Bob’s passing with much sorrow.

From those early days at my counter, we grew to be great friends. He and his wife Josie, were regular visitors at the FBSC awards every year representing Lintek, the club sponsor.

For over 27 years Bob suffered from MS, a horrible sickness that eventually took him from us.

He was a stalwart, and a rare example of what a good human being should be. We used to call each other ‘brother’, and I'll miss him.

RIP Bob.
