Lisa’s Grandad Jessiman has passed away

After living a long and active life, Lisa’s Grandad Bob Jesssiman passed away on October 24th at the age of 90.  Bob had been poorly for quite some time and was ready to go and join his granddaughter in a better place free from pain.

His life saw him live through 2 coronations, one abdication and seventeen prime ministers starting with David Lloyd George.  He served in the Royal Army Medical Corps in the second world war in Egypt, Africa, and Germany.  His working life was varied; he was a trawlerman, a factory worker, and spent most of his working life as a boilerman fireman in the pit. He loved fishing, and later bowling at Scoonie Bowls Club in Leven, Fife where he lived most of his life with his wife Margaret.  They had five children, twelve grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.  In 2002, Bob and Margaret moved south following Scott and Kelly’s wedding in Scotland.

Bob will be laid to rest at Redlynch cemetery in Wiltshire which was his request.  He will be missed by all.
