I heard from Simon, Bob Howes son that sadly he died yesterday. He went into hospital for a replacement knee in Australia where he lived, and was recovering nicely, when complications arose and he passed away unexpectedly. I've known Bob for a long time on another forum where we are both moderators and have often chatted from the UK with him and his wife Caer. My condolences go to his family. Always a fountain of knowledge and I'll miss his contributions.
