Nora added: "He adored his family and was a Woodbury man through and through.
"He endeavoured to be the best in most things he took part in and would do a good turn for anybody if he could - he was just that type of person."
Councillors at Woodbury Parish Council agreed to the bench being installed in memory of Bob at a meeting held on Monday, September 14.
The proposal was approved with the condition the family purchases and installs the bench. They also have to liaise with the council regarding its style and look after it the feature.
