He had a heart attack. He wasn't feeling very well, told Pete he thought he had food poisoning and asked if they could postpone recording the pod cast for a day. His wife came home later that day and found him dead.

Apparently he had some sort of heart condition. I am not sure if he knew about it and if so for how long he knew about it before the heart attack.

God bless Bob and his family.

OK... That scared me for a min.

I read the title of the post and thought, what could have gone wrong with Kevins eyes?!?

Glad to know all is (assumed) well.

I miss Bob also.

Or worse a lunch at Coral Reef followed by dinner at Ohana.

Yeah, this past December, we were at Ft Wilderness, looping around the campground, and reminisced about how much Bob loved Ft Wilderness, and how one year, we'd piled onto the golf cart for him to take some video of the animated lights and decorations on some of the sites.... since we all sort of got to "know" Dianer, was wondering how she's been as well.....

I just listened to the Bob Memorial show (for the umpteenth time) 2 days ago and smiled (though misty eyed) through the whole thing. He definitely touched my life through the podcast. I was fortunate to meet him in person once at an event at the Swan....so glad I was able to go. Then I was fortunate enough to be able to attend what turned into the Bob Memorial at The Gaylord Palms. Again, so grateful that I was able to go and pay tribute to a man that made a positive impact in this world.

I have been listening to all the old podcasts. I started listening in Sept of '08 so of course I didn't know Bob or understand the impact he had made.
Just yesterday I got to the announcement of his passing. It was so sad. I have been listening to almost 2 1/2 years of old shows to catch up. He added so much to everything. Now I understand why everyone missing him so much....
I might be 2 years too late but I miss him too.....
I now I understand so much more....
If you haven't listened to the old shows I suggest you do.....

I never knew Bob but he touched my life too through the podcast and his various kahtcam videos. From what I can gather from the podcast and the podcrew's comments, I bet Bob would be happy to know that people are still thinking of him fondly

Just to clear the air: we, his doctor & I, do not believe that Bob had a heart attack. We think that he had an aneurism, either thorasic or abdominal, burst. He was dead before he hit the bed, hands at his side, eyes open. Unfortunately, the medical examiner, in her stupidity, didn't do an autopsy so we will never know for sure.
I am doing fine, still miss him everyday, but functioning well. Having new fun experiences.

God Bless You Diana.

Bob continues to live on through all of us everyday. We all love Disney, and Bob probably loved it more than any of us.

We always know that Angel "Bawb" is looking down smiling.

I'm sure that Bawb's birthday was a time to remember. I'm hoping that you remembered all the good times and didn't dwell on the loss. As I know you've seen from all the posts here on the DIS (and not just in this thread), and from meeting some of us in person (sorry I missed you on the cruise), Bawb brought a lot of joy to all of us.

We all smile when we think of him.
