It is with deep regret that the COB Foundation announces the death of Trustee, Gerry Hay. Gerry had been on holiday with his family in Kefalonia when he passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.
Gerry joined the COB Foundation Office as Operations Director for a few months prior to his retirement in 2015. He had previously worked for many years in the Health Care Industry specialising in continence management products and brought with him a wealth of experience.
We will remember him here for the enthusiasm and encouragement he brought to our team and his focus on the patient which is at the heart of all we do here at the COB Foundation. He carried his ideals of treating others with respect and dignity through into his work here at all times.
After his retirement Gerry continued to support COB as a Trustee and took on responsibility for COB’s Twitter page ensuring that it was regularly up-dated with interesting and informative articles and helping COB to reach out to others who were suffering.
Gerry, a gentle and caring man, was valued by all those he came into contact with and he will be greatly missed by all at the COB Foundation. Our thoughts are with his wife, Jean, daughter Debbie and son Leigh and we wish them all possible strength at this difficult time.
