It was with sadness Grimethorpe Colliery Band heard the news that Robert Davison Senior had passed away. Affectionately known as 'Old Bob' by his many friends and colleagues Bob died peacefully on Friday, 7th January just 3 months short of his 100th birthday. Bob had played Bb Bass for Brighouse and Rastrick and Grimethorpe and when his playing days finished he continued his association with Grimethorpe, assisting Ken Hirst from mid 1970's through to the early 1990's. The funeral will take place at Grimethorpe Methodist Church on Tuesday, 18th January at 12.30 p.m. Our sincere condolences go to his son, Bob, and all the family. .
