"Rt Revd Robert (Bob) Hardy - R. I. P."

The diocese marks with sadness the death of the Rt Revd Robert (Bob) Hardy CBE on Friday.

Bishop Hardy was Bishop of Lincoln from 1987 to 2001. He was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2001 for his services to the Church of England that included being Bishop for HM Prisons. In retirement he served as a honorary assistant bishop in the diocese of Carlisle.

The Bishop of Lincoln, the Rt Revd Christopher Lowson, says Bishop Bob, as he was affectionately known across Greater Lincolnshire, was much loved and greatly admired for his dedication to the diocese and the people of Lincoln. He was particularly known for his commitment to rural issues and was a President of the Lincolnshire Show. ‘I ask that we pray for Bishop Bob, giving thanks for his ministry, and that we also pray for those who mourn at this time, particularly his wife Isobel, and their children Ben, Alexander and Rebecca. Dr Isobel Hardy made her own caring contribution to Lincolnshire as a General Practitioner in Sleaford and Market Rasen while her husband was bishop and our condolences are with her and the family.

May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

Father of all, we pray to thee for those whom we love, but see no longer. Grant them thy peace; let light perpetual shine upon them; and in thy loving wisdom and almighty power work in them the good purpose of thy perfect will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.’

The Revd Jayson Rhodes (Chaplain to the Bishop of Lincoln)
