Industry stalwart Bob Yates has died. The former Lintek rep had been suffering from MS.

Friend Norrie Kerr said: “Bob was a lovely guy. He was a regular attendant at my counter in the 80s, flogging us everything he could. Larry Riches, (Lintek), was his boss and closest friend. Like myself we have both taken Bob’s passing with much sorrow. He was a stalwart, and a rare example of what a good human being should be. We used to call each other ‘brother’, and I’ll miss him.”

The funeral will take place on 26 January at 10.30am, St Anne’s Church, Harrowby Road, Grantham NG31 9ED.

A fuller report and tribute will appear in the February issue of BDN.

Bob is pictured with wife Josie in 2008.
