Bob Dorey Rest In Peace

Posted 9th January 2018

Sadly Bob Dorey passed away on 3rd January  . Bob was one of our first Honouary Old Boys & played cricket for the club for a number of years at one point captaining the Saturday 2nd XI , he was also a prolific goal scorer for Alleyns Old Boys. Bob was a larger than life character usually armed with a brandy, a cigar & chuckle. Bob oversaw the setting up and running of the Croydon Tram System & was a larger than life character . I have many happy memories in my younger years of the Dorey clan playing games at xmas , with lots of laughter , tales and fun. Our thoughts are with his wife Irene and siblings Charles , Richard & Catherine.  

There will be a service of celebration & thanksgiving for Bob at Beulah Baptist Church, Bexhill on Sea on 26th January at 2.30pm for anyone wishing to say there farewells .
