Thank you Bob and the Lions Clubs for your outstanding support for the promotion of the West Auckland Neighbour Watch scheme. You were instrumental in a programme that the Commissioner of Police labelled as one of the best in the country. RIP

I remember Bob from my teenage years growing up in Te Atatu North. I worked in the dairy on weekends next to his grocery store next door then later he visited our home in Pt Chev to get some information for a press release for my winning the Lions' Peace prize essay writing competition back in the day. He was always upbeat, positive and respectful of other people.
