Bob Walton, R,I.P

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Bob Walton on 8th August, 2015

Bob was born on 8th April, 1931 at Freeby, in Leicestershire, and up until quite recently he was one of Leicestershire BNP's most energetic activists, and staunchly loyal to the Party. He had been involved with Nationalism since the early 1970s, always ready for leafleting, and he constructed a special BNP trailer which he brought to protests.

He was a very 'hands-on' man, restoration of classic motor-cycles being one of his talents; a generous man who was always keen to help in any way he could. Bob was renowned for his witty quips and monologues, his sense of humour -  his jokes being a by-word!

Always bouncy and positive, it was a shock therefore to hear that he was in hospital with depression. Not like Bob at all. Later it was found that he had lung cancer. Before he retired, Bob worked as a crane driver for a local firm. This apparently involved him being exposed to asbestos.

We will miss Bob, he was a real character, and a true, patriotic Englishman. We send sympathy and conolences to his family and many friends. Bless you, Bob, and thank you.

Bob's funeral will take place at Gilroes Cemetery on Groby Road, Leicester, LE3 9QG on Friday, 4th September at 10.45am. All who knew Bob are welcome. Please be there by 10.30am.
