Bob (Kit) Taylor (19.10.16 to 01.01.08)
Remembered by Alan Coventry

Dear Kit passed away on New Year’s Day after a short illness.

I have had the privilege of knowing him for over 26 years as a most generous, humorous and wickedly wind-up bloke you would ever wish to meet.

Kit was a founder member of The Preston Magic Circle [17/01/62] and as all members were, was a stage performer and did his ‘Bar’ ‘Down and Out’ act for the first time in The Men’s’ Hostel in Ribchester later that year with all his beer and wine glass productions from a very shabby raincoat including a beer glass Zombie [full of course!] and performed his act on many, many subsequent occasions for a variety of charity nights.

He was President of P.M.C. on 3 occasions, one of the original members who so very generously gave his time when the Junior Section was formed.

When elected Life Member in 1986 on his 70th. Birthday still gave his all on behalf of the ‘Club’ and its members.

I will miss him greatly and truly hope he has now met up with Molly (his late wife, the only one able to control him!).

My thoughts to all his family at this sad time.

The funeral will be held at Preston Crematorium on Wednesday 7th January at 1pm.

Alan Coventry - President, Preston Magic Circle, January 2008
