I am truly shocked and saddened to hear this news.

He will be greatly missed by all those who were fortunate to have met him and all those who enjoyed his input on the podcast, the boards, and his love for all things Disney.

Heartfelt condolences to his family and the entire podcast team.

Wow. I can't believe he's gone. I can't believe his final nap came so soon. As a new scooter user he was such an inspiration to me. My heart, prayers and tears are with Bawb's family and friends.

I wonder if he/she is coming on the cruise with us
Yes, I am. ;)

I didn't want to approach him as he would have thought I was some sort of weird stalker

I am so sorry to hear this - I always look forward to listening to Bob on the Podcast and was really looking forward to meeting him on the cruise. Thought and prayers go out to the family and the Podcast members.

My intitial reaction was "must be some other Bob". It absolutely cannot be my podcast "Bawb".

You all are in my prayers, the good people of the world truly leave us to soon.

Please pass on my condolences to Diana, Brian and the entire Varley family and the Podcast crew. I feel like I have lost a member of my own family.

Bob always seemed to delight in the simple pleasures in the Disney parks- often they were attractions many would overlook. He will be missed greatly.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Bob face to face. Through the pod casts and videos, I really felt like I knew him as we do all of the pod cast team. My wife has said several times that he is someone that I would like to be friends with. He seems warm, friendly, humorous and caring. We enjoyed his trips around the parks and the friendly bawb banter during the pod casts. He will truly be missed.

We are truly shocked, I spoke to Bob on Friday and was going to play golf with him this week. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and with the podcast team. It is a very sad day, he will be missed.

I can't even believe this. I never got to meet Bob, but my heart is just broken at this loss.

My prayers go out to the Varley family and the podcast crew. This is truly one of those days when someone special has left this world.

God Bless you Bawb, you have left an indelible mark on those who heard you.

I am shocked.

I had the pleasure of meeting Bob last year at Food and Wine and then at the Dec 6th Podcast Meet. I don't how else to describe Bob other then a true gentleman. He was that friendly voice that I so needed to hear on a business trip.

My thoughts and prayers to Diana, the Varley family and Bob's DIS family.
