Passing of a friend and past club member
Hi Gang

Sadly I have just learned a good friend and past club member Bob Cosgrove passed away last night.
Bob has been ill for a short time, his passing while not unexpected was still a shock, a good man whose life has been tragically cut short.

Bob, Cossy or "back end bob" has been a strength in the club for many years holding several key positions including providing a sounding board for myself and other Board members over the past few years, according to the records Bob & Jenny joined the club in 1997 along with his daughter Debbie who later married another club member Adam Murray.

I will always have fond memories of Bob, especially during our first Simpson Desert trip in 2008, He would regularly get on the radio letting us know it was time to wriggle our toes during the long treks between camp sites; apparently this single action creates blood flow and is a good way of preventing DVT.

The Attached photo was taken on Fraser Island in 2008 for the Cleanup, always a smile for the camera.

My Deepest sympathy goes out to Bob's family and friends he will be missed.
