Robert ‘Bob’ Sharrock – ‘Gone Home’

13 August 2019

It is with sadness that I have to report the passing after a long and active life of our fellow former Scouter Bob Sharrock.

Bob was the first District Commissioner of Lonsdale back in 1974 following the reunification of the Lancaster & Morecambe Districts. He had previously been Venture Scout Leader at the ‘Scorpio’ Venture Scout Unit based in Torrisholme, where your humble correspondent was his loyal assistant, and District Commissioner Morecambe 1971–74. Subsequently he was an Asst. County Commissioner in West Lancashire from 1981.

Bob was awarded the Medal of Merit in 1980 and a 15-year Service Award in 1981.

Bob was Mayor of Wyre in 1998.

Our thoughts and condolences are with Bob’s family and friends at this time.

His funeral will take place at Preston Crematorium on Friday 23 August at 12.15 pm. This will be followed by a celebration of his life at Garstang Free Methodist Church on Windsor Road at 2 pm.
