IT IS with enormous sadness that we announce the death of Robert ‘Rab’ Wood, one of Talking2Minds' greatest champions.
Rab, 54, died on Friday in a hotel room in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe in circumstances which are still being investigated.
He leaves a widow Sue and two sons.
His death comes as a huge shock to all who loved and respected him in the security services, at the Ministry of Defence and from his wide circle of family and friends.
From the moment Talking2Minds was formed four years ago, Rab has been an encouraging and crucial supporter.
The charity’s founder Rob Paxman said: “Rab was a great friend to me and to so many others. He helped us make some very influential contacts and we are indebted to him.”
We send our condolences to Sue and his family.
On a personal note, Rab was one of my oldest and dearest friends and I am going to miss him terribly.
His funeral arrangements will also be announced on this blog and on Talking2Minds.co.uk
