BMFA Area 13

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you all that Robert Wallace has lost his battle with cancer and passed away at midnight Tuesday 3/4/2019 our condolences and sympathy go out to his wife Jacqui, daughter Paula, Julie his granddaughter Clara who he doted on and the extended family. Robert was not only my good friend but also my mentor, small in stature but with a huge heart, I always say the biggest wee man I have ever known.
Robert his brother Jeff and his three nephews Andrew, Richard and Clifford all fly models, and you all know Robert from his work in the Area as an Area Chief Examiner, also competing it was only about nine months ago he won the Kinsella Cup with his immaculate Lysander complete with miniature copy of The Ballymena Guardian in the cockpit, he was for most of his working life a photographer for the Guardian. An accomplished modeller he will be remembered not only for his scale aircraft which he put a huge amount of effort into building but also by the vast amount of people he taught to fly models and countless others that he helped in the hobby. He will be sadly missed on the modelling scene.
Robert had one fault he always saw good in people.

Regretfully Terry Jones
