He became the 12th member of the World Cup 1966 winning squad to die.
Bobby also has a 76-year-old brother called Tommy, who didn't play football professionally.
But he did watch his two brothers win the World Cup in 1966 on TV as a 20-year-old, despite having a ticket for the final.
“I didn’t know where London was,” he told the Telegraph.
“Bob did get me a ticket but I looked at it and said, ‘What the hell am I going to do with that? I don’t know how I’ll get there. I haven’t got any money’.
“The only people I could have asked for money were Bob and Jack and I wasn’t going to do that. That’s never been my way. I watched it at a friend’s house whose mum and dad knew nothing about football."
