Bob Osler, the chair of Derby Homes, has died suddenly, aged 65.

Mr Osler joined the ALMO’s board in 2002 where he played an active role in helping the organisation to grow and secure social housing in Derby.

Councillor Rawson, deputy leader of Derby City Council, said:It is with great regret that I share the sad news of the passing of Bob Osler. I wish to convey my heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

“He cared greatly about providing affordable housing for tenants in need of social housing and made it his mission to ensure their needs were catered for.

“His passion for his work was an inspiration and he will be greatly missed by all who met him. I am sure his legacy will live on in the work of Derby Homes as they continue to secure the best future for their tenants.”

Mr Osler suffered a suspected heart attack whilst cycling on Sunday.

Maria Murphy, director of Derby Homes, said: “Bob was more than a figurehead for Derby Homes – he was an inspiring person who engaged with tenants and employees and genuinely wanted to understand their issues.

“Bob will be missed by us all but his vision and passion for improving the lives of people in this city will not be lost.”

Before joining Derby Homes, Mr Osler worked for firm Marks and Spencer and Coats Viyella, before starting his own international management consultancy and textile procurement businesses.
