ROB WILLIN (d.2023)

I am very sorry and shocked to say that Rob has suddenly passed away. We have few details as yet. . Rob joined The Questors in September 2004. He was a regular and very skilled member of the construction team and also served on Front of House and backstage as part of the crew on many shows. I will miss his unerring cheerfulness, and enthusiasm, as well as his great skill in solving problems in set construction, drawing on his engineering knowledge.

He was a wonderfully genuine person. He never over promised or under achieved. In the same way, he never arrived at my door with a problem, only a solution to a problem. Genial, practical, intelligent - he contributed to and completely understood The Questors. It was always a pleasure to see him and I shall remember him as such a positive force. Thank you Rob. You are very much missed.

I can't believe Rob was as usual giving his skills and experience to the set of Little Dorrit only a few weeks ago. Such a kind, thoughtful, charming man and a huge asset. He'll be hugely missed.
