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  Bob Sharrock.

Bob was initially an Assistant Scoutmaster at 16th Morecambe and later 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 and District Commissioner Morecambe 1971–74. Subsequently he was an Asst. County Commissioner in West Lancashire from 1981.

Bob was Mayor of Wyre in 1998.
