  8. Condolences to Bob’s siblings & their families. Growing up in Moulamein & every Christmas was a time to get a block of ice from Braines & Bob was always there, working hard & not saying much. Then when I worked in Turnleys Milk Bar, Bob & Charlie would escort their sisters in from the picture theatre to have a milkshake or cold drink. R.I.P. Bob.
