A wonderful husband, father, grandad and brother - who was loved so much and will be missed by all xoxox
Bob was a quiet soul - a simple man who enjoyed a simple life, and loved nothing more than his family and his comforts of home.
He could quite often be found at home - doing a jigsaw, reading the newspaper, listening to the radio or watching one of his old english comedy programmes - with his slippers on and a cup of tea in hand!
When the weather was nice, he enjoyed sitting in the conservatory or garden, or going for a nice walk with his wife, Jan.
He was also a steam train enthusiast, he absolutely loved his steam trains!
He was a lovely man, who would do anything for anyone - he enjoyed fixing and making things, and was always willing to lend a helping hand whenever needed.
Unfortunately, Bobs beautiful life was taken far too soon by pancreatic cancer.
Bob was diagnosed with terminal stage 4 pancreatic carcinoma which had metastasized with his liver and omentum on the 14th of November 2020.
He sadly passed away on the 5th of February 2021.
Bob had less than 3 short months left of his life by the time he was diagnosed.
Prior to his diagnosis, there had been many warning signs that we just didnt know about at the time and it had been missed by the doctors too, which after some research seems to be alarmingly all to common with this type of cancer.
Pancreatic cancer, although not the most common, can be one of the most fatal. This is due to detection times - by the time it is found it is often too late or has spread too far to be treatable.
Whats most concerning is that this has been the case with pancreatic cancer for years so why is there still so little awareness about the signs and symptoms before its too late?
Its just not good enough, and most dont even get the chance to fight it before its too late.
Thats why I have created this tribute page - in loving memory of my dear dad and all others like him, that have either lost their battle or are still fighting it.
I want to try to raise more vital funds for research and awareness about this horrible disease that takes far too many, far too often and far, far too quickly.
So please, wether you knew my dad or not, anything you are able to give to PCUK to support them in their fight against pancreatic cancer will be greatly appreciated, the work they do is nothing short of amazing and the donations are so needed in order for them to continue their work.
You can either donate directly through this tribute page, or, alternatively, you can also donate via phone or post as well.
All information can be found on this website.
Thank you for taking the time to read Bobs story.
Rest easy now dad, no more pain, sleep tight until we meet again.
We love you so, so much and will miss you always.
