I have known Robert for almost 20 years. He was such a lovely man, he treated all my family with so much love like we were part of his family. I have many fond memories of Robert over the years. He would often travel on his bike and come to my house and plants spring bulbs with my children... his memory will continue in the spring every year when these blossom.

RIP Robert you will truly be missed.

It is important for me to write something in tribute to Robert as he always said, “You won’t come across many Alex Moons in the world”. I wanted to share some of my fondest memories, of which there are many, from my time at university. Even to this day, many years on, I still feel blessed to have had a lecturer like him a true – angel of the earth!
The first memory that comes to mind when I hear his name will always be the ‘Never Ending Essay’. This essay was 3000 words over the limit. I was constantly emailing and phoning Robert with no idea how to cut the essay or what to keep or lose. Robert never complained and, true to his nature, he told me it was all wonderful and to add the extra after the conclusion.
Another wonderful time that I shared with Robert was our class trip to the V&A museum in London. It was my first real time there and he took us to all the main tourist attractions via the tube. Robert made sure everyone had an unforgettable London experience. He also gave the trip a very personal touch by introducing the class to his daughter who was currently working there. Robert had already met my son on many occasions, as Robert always made him welcome in his lectures when childcare was unavailable. Not only did Robert show his compassion, but he also made sure that my 5 year old was thoroughly entertained – which was no mean feat!
Thinking about these times and more, has allowed me to appreciate the loss of Robert - which I’m sure is felt deeply by so many others. It’s a true shame that these angels of the earth are taken from us, especially in the world of today. He might have thought that there wasn’t many of me in the world but, knowing him as I did; I can safely say the world definitely needs more Roberts!
