Bob worked for Wilton Carpets as a senior sales representative between 1996 and his retirement in 2013 and over those 17 years his contribution to the success of the business, particularly in and around London, was highly significant. In no small measure, his achievements were due to his geniality, his engaging good nature, and his wry sense of humour – his best customers were genuinely fond of him, and looked forward to his visits. Bob remained a loyal and dedicated employee throughout his time with Wilton and this devotion was always appreciated by the company’s owners and directors.
His former work friends and colleagues all want to pay tribute to his warmth and humanity and to express their sincere condolences to his family. He will be sadly missed.
