DOWKES Robert George (Bob) Elke, Mandy, Daniela, Ian, Lisa-Marie and Carol-Ann would like to thank everyone for the cards, flowers, messages, cake and expressions of sympathy received following the sad loss of Bob. Thanks also to everyone who came to the house to pay their respects and offered support. Thanks to family and friends who were able to attend the service and to everyone who couldn't attend but came and stood outside the house where Bob lived for the past 26 years, to pay their respects when he left. Thank you to everyone who gave donations to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Finally, the family would like to thank most sincerely Adam Collier, Funeral Director, and his team, for their caring help and efficient guidance whilst arranging Bob's funeral. Also, a special thanks to Adam himself for making Bob's service an extra special tribute by conducting it just the way the family wanted. Bob would have loved every minute of it.
