Bob passed on on July 1, 2019 at his home after a long battle with leukemia.
Apart from being the face of Kenya’s largest telecommunications company, Collymore was a family man who kept his private life, private.
When he spoke about his family, however, it was with pride. At the age of 61, he had been married three times and each time, he said during an interview, “it kept on getting better.”
“Each time it’s got better. Each time the match has been better.
“I never set out to remarry, I think I just met someone who, someone I think I can spend the rest of my life with because we care for each other,” he is quoted by the Standard.
He is survived by four children and his wife.
