It is my painful duty to pass on the sad news given to me today by his daughter Emma Way, of the death of her father Bob Myers.
He died yesterday, suddenly but peacefully, with his wife Gilly at his side. His family were looking forward to joining him, from around the world on the 30th December for his 92nd Birthday and he was in good spirits until a couple of weeks ago when he began to be in some pain.
It was Bob’s wish that those whom he knew and loved would gather to enjoy his memory and so on Friday 3 January there will accordingly be such a gathering. Details will follow.

As sent in by Mr Allan Gay Niblett our OCA fraternity must join together to express our deepest and most heartfelt condolences to Mrs Myers on the passing of Bob Myers Esquire
He was one of the finest and most immaculate gentleman; another die-hard Old Cottonian.
I was privileged to have known him starting 1999 when I was positioned in London from San Jose Costa Rica.
He always made the strongest effort to come up to London for the OCA UK Luncheon.
His sense of humour and his grand demeanour always left me in awe.
May His Noble Soul Rest in Peace.
