Many police dog handlers will remember Bob as the saddler & leather worker who, for almost 65 years, supplied police dog sections all over the country with the leads, collars, bite sleeves and all the other bits and pieces required. Bob and his wife Kath always had a warm and friendly welcome for any police dog handler when they called in to 'Rec Road' to collect their orders.
Bob died peacefully in his sleep after a long illness at 3.15am this morning, (14/6/13), he was 88 and a half years of age and continued working until shortly before he died.
Funeral arrangement have not yet been arranged but will be posted on the Surrey Police Retired Comrades site,(http://blog.old-and-bold.info) when known.
Bob's wife Kath passed away three or four years ago but his son Robin continues the work Bob was part of for so many years.
Another sad loss to the police dog family.
I agree and thanks to Denis, retired Surrey Police Dog Sgt for this information. My condolences to his family.
