Death of Bob Golinski
August 26, 2020
It is with deep regret that Chambers announces the death of Bob Golinski, who passed away peacefully on 24 August 2020.
Our deepest condolences are with his family and friends and all those who were close to him.
Richard Littler QC, a close friend of Bob and colleague at Exchange Chambers, has written the following:
“Bob Golinski has passed away. Bob was not just a member of our chambers. He was a true friend to many at Exchange and he will be missed. Bob has been unwell for some time but importantly he was at home and being cared for by his wonderful loving family when he passed. Bob and his family told me only days ago how appreciative they were of the supportive messages and outpouring of love received.
Details of the funeral service will be circulated in due course. A memorial event in 2021 will be organised by Bob’s family to celebrate the life of this talented, gentle and wonderful man.
There is now a memorial site in honour of Bob set up to allow all who knew him to share their memories of Bob. Bob’s family will gain strength and comfort from all your kind messages and stories. They encourage you to contribute. Here is the link bobgolinski.muchloved.com. When you access the site you will be able to select contributions from the menu and upload your message or picture or video or music. We encourage people to revisit the site. In the coming weeks we will upload more about Bob but at the moment we want your stories and thoughts about our good friend and colleague.”
