Dear Stewart and family, I am so very sad to hear of your Dad's passing. Bob joined the Tutti Choir in late 2004, and was truly loved and respected by everyone. Bob was a great choir member in that he both sang with his lovely bass voice and also found subtly helpful ways to support members with a disability who experienced anxiety during a performance. I have many memories of Bob standing beside Mark Andrew, Warwick Smith, Greg Evangelou, Jason Crowhurst, Joel Hartgen and many others in performances gently reassuring them that they did know the words and could do it. Bob was a natural gentleman and his kindness ensured that everyone always felt good when he was present. I will always remember his willingness to help out with pick-ups and transport and ensuring people got home safely after performances. Music theatre works and operas Bob participated in with Tutti included Mouth Music in 2006, both Adelaide productions of Northern Lights Southern Cross ( the Opening Event at the 2007 Bundaleer Forest festival and also at The State Opera Studio) in 2007, Die Fledermaus with Co-Opera at Bird in Hand Winery in 2007, and he sang in both The Shouting Fence (2009) and The Magic Flute in 2011 which Tutti produced in partnership with State Opera. Bob also sang in every major concert between 2005 and 2012 including Tutti’s Tenth Birthday Concert at the Adelaide Town Hall, the International World Youth Day Concert at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre in 2008, WOMADELAIDE in 2010, and Tutti’s Broadway Spectacular at Elder Hall in 2010 to name a few. I have a very fond memory of Bob in the lead up to the Broadway concert when Bob along with several men in the choir auditioned for a solo. Bob came in and sang If I Were a Rich Man from Fiddler on the Roof. I remember Philip Griffin and I were so happy that Bob and indeed so many men had auditioned. However they'd all done so well it presented us with quite a problem and in the end the song was presented by a very happy group of 'rich men' who all had their solo lines. Needless to say they all did a great job and their ‘Fiddler’ really brought the house down! Rest in peace dear Bob – I’m sure the Heavenly Host will soon be claiming you as a bass. Much love from Pat Rix and members of the Tutti Choir

To Stewart, Craig, Merridy and families Thinking to you all at this sad time and sending our condolences. We have many happy memories of occasions spent with Bob and Janet back in the Hawthorndene Days. School Events, Tennis Picnics in National Park, Dinner Parties with mutual friends etc.. Andrea also loved going to Glenelg’s Footie games with Bob and his boys sometimes. Colin and I were fortunate enough to attend a Gilbert & Sullivan show that Bob invited us to and thoroughly enjoyed. Quite recently I happened to cross paths with Bob whilst we were both taking a walk along the Esplanade at Seacliff, which gave us a chance for a Long chat and enjoy the beautiful surrounds. Bob was always good company and had a very kind heart. From Margaret Dunning , (Rae and Andrea)
