As I look around the school there is probably not a corridor or classroom that doesn’t say ‘Robert was here’.
I have wonderful memories of Robert and here are just a few. The wonderful craftmanship of the cabinets in the oratory, doing many odd jobs for me, Robert standing in my classsroom with me watching the birds nesting on the roof, or him attending to the injured ones in the playground, the guitar chat when I started playing and him trying to convince me to run (didn’t succeed).
But the most time I spent with Robert was the hours and hours of staff badminton after school and during the school holidays. I remember him to be very patient with me, who was definitely not as fit as him, I let him do all the running about. But also I must mention his dancing, his love for Christine and Lauren, his dodgy moustache at one point, and his ‘yes I can do that for you’ attitude.
This world will miss a true gentleman. Rest in Peace, my thoughts and prayers are with You, Christine, and Lauren.
