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.
Bob’s funeral will take place on Wednesday 20 December 2017, 12 noon, at:
Crown Woods Way,
No flowers please and Bob’s ashes will be scattered in the same garden of rest as those of his wife Pansy. After the funeral, there will be a buffet lunch at:
Falcon Harvester, Fingfield Crescent, Opposite Falconwood Rail Station.
If you do have any reminiscences that you would like to share, please forward them to Betty Allen, along with whether you are going to attend the lunch (for numbers).
