  2. I was proud of you many times in life but never more so than when you fought back so heroically and dealt with your illness this past year. Ultimately, this represented a small part of a life otherwise filled with lots of love and laughter.

  16. Dear Rob, after your injury and we were making almost daily journeys to Bristol ICU, in the initial two weeks, we were so rooting for you just to recover consciousness. And when you did what you went on to achieve in your rehabilitation journey was truly remarkable with the help of the brilliant teams at Bristol and subsequently Poole. Sue and I were so proud of you and continue to be. We greatly miss the Sunday roast lunches with you and Glenda, the laughs we had, and the games of Scrabble afterwards. Maisy sends a miaow, miaow for all the looking after you did. Forever in our minds. Lots of love Scott xxx

    Scott Beagrie
  17. I was so lucky to have had you as my friend. I will truly miss you, especially your stupid jokes, your smile and our chats over coffee. You left us far too soon, so many unfinished adventures. Rest in peace Rob. Sooze xx

  21. Dear Rob

    The best Step-Dad and Grandad the boys and I could ever wish for. We have so many happy, funny memories of you and our adventures together that we will cherish forever.

    A memory that sticks out for me was when we were on one of our many visits to Poole Park and you thought it would be hilarious to catch me off guard by picking up a Canada Goose and throwing it to me shouting “catch” and sneaking bird feed into the hood of my coat!!

    I will miss your advice and encouragement every single day but I will smile whenever I think of you and know that you will be causing mischief up there.

    Until we meet again “Grandad Rob”.

    All our love,
    Simone, Bayley & Max – AKA The Monkey Brothers

  25. Rob was one of the best karateka I trained with showing true courage, focus, spirit, and compassion with a wry sense of humour and fun, I will miss sparring and chatting with him.

    Trevor van de Velde-Smith
  26. I met Rob back in the 1980s when he ran the auto car spares shop in Wareham, I went in to ask if he would put a poster up asking for beginners to start at my karate club and he said I would not mind giving that ago.
    I think it was only the following week Rob arrived and joined the club and after a number of years he attained his black belt he was so chuffed as I was was.
    Bob really liked the fighting side of karate ( sparring) and entered a number of competitions.
    We have lost a truly member of our club and we we miss his banter but we will not forget Bob.

    Glyn Morgan

  30. In loving memory, Rob. I remember that you were always such a kind and caring person, from when we were friends in our schooldays in Purbeck, to more recently since my return to Dorset, sharing laughs with you in the garden and introducing you to our cat! It was a pleasure to know you. Rest in Peace.

  32. I shall always remember your wicked sense of humour and naughty enjoyment of being a loving brother teasing your exasperated sister who you were so very proud of. I shall also remember your kindness in dark days, your love of talking about passed holidays with Glenda and your pride in doing a good job, but most of all I will miss that smile.

    Tina Mitchell
