Bob Peel (CR 1960-91)

The Marlburian Club is sad to have to let you know of the death of Bob Peel, Head of Wind 1960 – 1991. Bob was the leading light in setting up Brasser and a testament to the esteem in which he was held was the turn out for the Brasser reunion in 2015.

Past President and Past Chairman of the Marlburian Club, Steven Bishop (PR 1969-73) said ‘Bob was an inspirational teacher, of both the gifted and not so gifted in equal measure. He was an enthusiast whose love of music making rubbed off on all of us fortunate to come under his spell. For everyone who was in Brasser, it was a highlight of their College career and no one will forget the riot that was a Hootenanny encore! He was a very special and much loved.’

The family ask that you respect their privacy as they come to terms with Bob’s sudden death. Please send any email messages of condolence via the Club marlburianclub@marlboroughcollege.org and if you wish to send a note by post, again email the Club and we will send you an address.

A full obituary will follow.
