Bob was one of the first people I met from the DIS many years ago. He was a thoughtful man with a true love for Disney. Through the tears, right now I’m remembering the time we spent in Southern California with him and Diana many years ago and how my daughter who was only about 5 still remembers the fun she had with him at Knots Berry Farm.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Diana, his family and all those who he touched in his lifetime.

This is truly a sad day.

Rest in Peace my friend……

What terribly sad, shocking news! Our thoughts and prayers are with Bawb's family and with everyone on the podcast team. We hope the Lord gives you all strength and comfort during this most difficult time.

There just isn't the right words to say what I feel. My condolences to his friends, immediate family, and Podcast family.
He touched so many and I am sure him and Walt are going to meet up for Dole Whips and a chat.

As other have mentioned, this is shocking news. I have been listening to your podcast for some time and it saddens me that my first post on the podcast board would be for this reason. But this warrants a comment.

I extend my condolences and prayers out to Bob's family as well as the other members of the podcast. He was obviously a very kind man who could always take a good natured joke. He will be missed by someone who never met him in person - only through voice.

I wish I would have had the opportunity to meet him and shake his hand.

He will be missed...

I couldn't believe my own words when reading to my husband Pete's post informing everyone that Bawb has passed away. Unbelievable. I find comfort thinking of the kind words he had to say about his loving wife, the pride in his voice when speaking of his son, his obvious enthusiasm for his dream job, the joy he had in working with his best friends and his upbeat personality. My impression is that Bawb lived a great life. I am a firm believer that this is a far sadder day for us then it is for Bawb. Love and prayers to ALL of Bawb's family and friends...

I feel like I just lost a family member (and I did lose my mom last December). I am so, so sorry . . . my prayers and thoughts are with Bob's family and friends.

I can't believe what I'm reading - and I am deeply saddened by the sudden passing of such a good-natured fellow.

I feel like I've lost a friend.

My heart goes out to you all, Pete. Please let Diana & Brian know, when you think it's the right time, that we are all praying for them.

I'll miss you, Bob.

Oh no!

Being a long time lurker I really don't post that much, but I just had to send out heartfelt condolences to Bob's family and friends.

The world is going to be a lot less brighter now without you Bob.

I'm so very sorry to hear about this news - it truly breaks my heart. I wish I could find words to say to bring peace to the podcast team and Bawb's family.

Diana and Brian - please know Bob was very much loved here and will truly be missed. I, like others here, feel like I knew Bob and looked forward to meeting our friend in person. It breaks my heart that I won't have that chance.

Everyone who has had the distinct opportunity to meet Bob is very fortunate indeed. I will certainly keep Bob's family and friends in my prayers.
