Obituary: Bill Mobbs thumbnail

Quite a few of our readers will have already heard of the sad passing of Bill, after an illness only diagnosed just before Christmas, he slipped away peacefully last week. My thanks to Dave Glicksman who was a friend of Bill dating back to their early days representing Bontempi and Paul Lamond Games. Their patch was London/SE/East Anglia.

Many of us will have spent time with Bill at the various toy fairs and spent time in his company at the golf days. When he retired he had been working with MGA for quite a few years. Always very cheerful, Bill was a keen Spurs fan, but then nobody’s perfect!

Popular with his customers and fellow agents and reps alike, Bill will be sorely missed and we pass on our condolences to his wife Gill from us all.
