Thanks so much, Dom. I was really moved by your own dad's passing, and it'd be great to see you again soon, so let's do that. All the best, Owen

Sorry to hear about Rob's death. My husband and I both worked with him in Sheffield in the 1980s & 1990s and have good memories from that time. Condolences and best wishes to you and your family x

Really sorry to hear this Owen. I'll be thinking of you and the family. Hopefully happy memories will provide some comfort. In Sheffield of course you're still perhaps mainly known as Rob's son! xx

So sorry to hear about Rob. I knew him well. He and Ruth worked endlessly for others. The house at Meersbrook was always a place where I felt welcomed. Even now I can see him hand on hip sucking on a very small roll-up. The baton is passed on. The world was made a better place

Very sorry, Owen. I remember Rob speaking at LPYS conference in the 1970s - the delegate from Sheffield Heeley - the first person I met when I moved to Sheffield in 1981. A very good man!

Really sorry to hear this Owen - Rob was a lovely fella who literally changed the course of my life when he 'recruited' me to the Tendency (which of course never officially existed!) in Sheffield in '83. Hope you all keep well and together in your grief x

Sorry for your loss. Rob was a good friend to my dad (), I met him a couple of times & he was a good guy. Had a soft spot for the Hearts too! He'll be missed.

So sorry for your loss - I met your Mum & Dad in the Young Socialists, in the early 1970's, and have very fond memories of them both

Fondest memories of Rob in Sheff grant aid officer’s group in the 90s. He was a good man.
