It is with great sadness that we announce that Bob Stevens died unexpectedly on July 31st . He was our county councillor for the last twenty three years, working totally for the good of our community all hours of the day and night. His conscientious nature and desire to help was very much appreciated by councillors past and present. His contribution was not always recognised as he was never someone to blow his own trumpet.
For many years he worked as both a county councillor and a district councillor; he seemed to be in meetings every night of the week. Indeed, on a personal note, none of us can remember many occasions over more than twenty years when he missed a parish council meeting.
He was of an era – polite, gentlemanly and always honest. His remarkable twenty-year naval career left its mark, as Andy Crump has said – nautical terminology was always in evidence.
He helped very many residents and was always happy to advise and guide the parishes he represented. He loved to communicate his knowledge and experience to help others. He was his “own man”, not someone to be swayed from his path. This was his strength.
We will miss him greatly and extend our sincere condolences to his family.
