Chester Male Voice Choir

Farewell to Bob Cunningham

Farewell to Bob Cunningham

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our oldest and longest serving member Bob Cunningham on 25 August 2020. Bob passed peacefully in his sleep in the Countess of Chester Hospital following a short illness.
Bob, who celebrated his 90th birhday earlier this year, joined the choir way back in 1957 and last sang with us in August 2019. He was a much loved and respected member of the second bass section. Many tributes have been received from friends and colleagues, not least from those members who were mentored by Bob when they first joined the choir. Bob was a true gentleman and great friend to so many. He will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with his wife Sheila and their sons Simon and Jonathon.
