It was with great sadness that Comber Silver Band learnt of the death on Sunday 12th May 2013 of their chairman Robin Black, who was on holiday in Spain.
Robin was a loyal and dedicated member of the band, a member of the trombone section that had recently won two trophies for the band in 2013. He was recently appointed by his band colleagues as their chairman and previously had been an excellent registration secretary. He will be sorely missed from these roles as well as for his typical down to earth attitude and sense of humour.
Robin was well known in band circles having played previously with Reed Memorial, Old Park Silver, Bloomfield Silver and Templemore Silver bands.
The band was honoured that Robin's family asked for their participation in his funeral service which took place at 1.30pm on Wednesday 22nd May 2013 in Donaghadee 1st Presbyterian church. The band was joined by colleagues from other bands who came to help give Robin a good brass band send off.
