Mr Bob Dickerson 1928-2020113 viewsKeith Dickerson writes..."It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that Robert (Bob) Dickerson, Art Teacher and later Head of the Art Department at Tal Handaq from 1958-1968, passed away at the age of 92 on 19 December 2020.
Bob returned to the UK on 4 July 2018 after living in Malta, Cyprus, Sardinia and Rome with his 2nd wife Brenda for over 40 years. He moved into sheltered accommodation in Ipswich in August 2018 and continued painting until the end of his life. He moved into a nursing home in October 2020 where unfortunately he caught COVID-19.
His funeral will be held at Ipswich Crematorium at 3.15pm this Friday 8 January. Please let me know if you'd like to come as we still have a few places available.
Alternatively you can watch the webcast of the funeral live HERE (https://www.obitus.com/)

If you have any other photos of Bob please send them to me via Admin and I will upload them.
Best wishes, Keith Dickerson"
