Robin Craddock, chairman of Lakes Bathrooms, passed away on 24 November 2016, aged 51.
Greatly respected and a friend to many in the industry, Robin was a larger than life personality; known for his inimitable style and boundless sense of humour. Together with his father, Alan, he launched Lakes Bathrooms 30 years ago and had just celebrated this milestone anniversary.
Besides his passion for his family and the business that he built, Robin had a love of horse racing and, as a racehorse owner, was exceptionally proud to meet Her Majesty The Queen, on the occasion of a win at Royal Ascot in 2013. He spoke of it as one of the highlights in his life, but spoke much more often of his love of his family; Julia and his three children, Grace, Connie, and Elliott.
Robin’s funeral will be held on 15 December at 1230, at All Saints Church, Cheltenham. His family have asked that any tributes to him are made by way of donation to Sue Ryder, the hospice which cared for him at the end of his life, or to Cancer Research: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/SomeoneSpecial/RobinCraddock. Lakes Bathrooms will be donating a bed to the hospice in honour and memory of him.
