Robert was someone that was always open and friendly. He engaged in enthusiastic conversation about many varied topics and I was keen to listen to him wax lyrical about his bird-watching holidays in Tarifa. He helped me to fix broken musical instruments on a regular basis and was responsible for attaching the guitar and ukulele hooks around my classroom walls. These acts of kindness will remain with us for many years and will serve as a lovely reminder and lasting tribute to a very kind man. Rest in peace Robert.
