Former Eildon Board Member, Bob Stewart MBE

We were very saddened to hear of the passing of Robert (Bob) Stewart MBE who gave much of his time to Eildon over the years. When he retired, he took on the role of Committee Member from 2005 – 2011 and before then he was employed as a Clerk of Works with Eildon.

In his younger days Bob followed his father into the Kings Own Scottish Borderers (KSOB) for his 3 years of national service. After his national service he completed a joinery apprenticeship with Finlayson’s which was followed by 30 years in the Fire Service. He was a Past President of the Galashiels Braw Lads Gathering between 2003-2005 and was made a Life Member when his term of office ended.

He will be very sadly missed, and our thoughts and best wishes go to his friends and family.
