Hi From BT MR Staff,
Rob Rowland.jpg
We have two recent deaths to report.

Rob Rowland

Dave Bell announced the sad news of Rob's on WhatsApp

Rob Rowland died on Tuesday his wife Carol posted it on Facebook.

Dave went on to say that he worked with Rob in Dial House before he emigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1994. He had just reached 74 last month. I met him in Toronto in 2005. RIP.

In Robs own words from his profile:

From Manchester now living in Toronto, Canada. Been here for nearly 18 years. Married almost 29 years as I write this anniversary in July with 3 adult kids. Life is different here,especially with the varied extreme weather conditions through the year.

Worked at BT Manchester GPO et al 1965-1994. Emigrated to Canada Nov 1994 and worked at MTS Allstream Telecommunications company had various names during this time until 2010. Laid off and now working for myself.

Roy Cohen

Graham Copeland emailed us with the sad news of Roy's untimely death earlier in November.

So sorry to hear from my nephew who works for Openreach, about Roy Cohen
He collapsed and died with a heart attack at Bury Telephone Exchange.
He was a character!

No further information was received about Roy's funeral which has probably already taken place.
