Mr Bob Dickerson 1928-2020167 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.

I have created a dropbox folder containing over 100 photos of Bob taken during his life HERE
(https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3j68h3qed1zo2c9/AADS4TNli-_Os0GCOYfw5u_7a?dl=0)
If you have any other photos of Bob please send them to me via Admin and I will upload them.
Best wishes, Keith Dickerson"
