Bob Townsend – RIP


It is with great sadness that I have to report that Robert ‘Bob’ Townsend passed away on 25 November 2017.  Bob was a great supporter of diving and a regular competitor in British Masters events for over twenty years.  Bob started his diving career late, with Highgate Diving Club at Swanley, but began training with Betty Allen at Royal Tunbridge Wells Monson some time ago.  Bob won medals of all colours in British Masters Championships and also competed in a number of international events, when time and circumstance would permit.

Eventually, Bob had to give up his diving in order to look after his sick wife, Pansy, returning for a short while when she died until his own illness became too much.

Bob was a man of great character, who had led an extremely eventful life; he had an insatiable curiosity and zest for life, which was infectious.  A man of impeccable manners and courtesy, who will be greatly missed by the diving community.
