An honest man here lies to rest
As e'er God with his image blest;
The friend of man, the friend of truth,
The friend of age, and guide of youth:
Few hearts like his, with virtue warm'd,
Few heads with knowledge so informed:
If there's another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.
Stirling Bard Bob McCutcheon Passes Away.
The Family of Stirling, and the rest of Scotland has suffered a great loss.
The voice of Stirling, Stirling historian and personal friend Bob McCutcheon, passed away late Saturday in his sleep.
This website, and much of the material here was provided by or improved by Bob. In every way one can imagine his love of history, Scotland, Family, and this endevoour were impacted in many ways. His contributions to our historical records of Stirling and the surrounding area are impossible to measure. His passing is a huge loss, to both Kith and Kin.
A number of us are making arrangements to travel to Scotland as soon as possible to pay our respects.
The Funeral will be held on Thursday at 2:00pm at the Bannockburn Community Centre, thereafter internment at Bannockburn cemetery at approx 3:00pm.
Please feel free to email messages and memorials to Rick Stirling, we'll include them here, and pass them on to his family. You can email Rick - here.
Please join with us in remembering Bob and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
Michael Jex & Rick Stirling.
