I am so sorry. I loved listening to Bawb on the podcast. I am here at work crying. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and the podcast crew. He will really be missed.

I am so sad

I am so sad to hear this. As most have said, Bob was loved by all even though we had never met him. May God give his family and friends peace and comfort in this terrible time.
Please know he is in a better place and is now chasing the angels with the Bawb cam
Again I am so sorry.

Wow, what horrible and shocking news. I only discovered The DIS Unplugged about 6 weeks ago, but I've listened to many of the archived podcasts, and even after "knowing" Bob and the rest of the podcast crew for just a short time, I can't imagine the podcast without him. I'll be thinking about and praying for Diana and everyone else throughout the week.

There is no better sign at how much this man was loved by the outpouring of emotion from the people on this board. While very few of us ever met Bob we all felt as if we knew him and we have all lost one of our Tuesday friends. Bob seemed to be a very genuine person, and that is what made him such a loveable part of the show. Just the thought of seing an empty microphone brings a tear to my eyes. My thoughts and prayers go out to Bob's family, and to the entire podcast team. He will be missed by many.

Bob, enjoy the great view of the shuttle launch...

As many, many people have said, even without meeting Bob face to face I felt like I knew him just by listening to him week after week. The whole pod squad gives us a look into their personalities each week and you can’t help but feel like you know them even without meeting them.

Finding out about his death hit me like a hammer and while I know this tragedy is much more personal for his family and the rest of the pod casters I do feel like I lost a friend today.

Even though I never had a chance to met Bob, I am filled with sorrow, it feels like I lost a friend. My heart goes out to all of Bob's family and friends. I pray Bob has a safe trip to heaven.

on every trip I would always keep an eye out for Bob. My impressions from listening to him every week was that he was a good person, and I was hoping to meet some day.

I only found the podcasts a few months ago and have been catching up thru the archives. I'm now typing thru tears for a man I never met, tho like others I felt I loss a friend.

When I signed up for the podcast cruise, I excitedly told DH that we'd get to meet Bawb. I looked fwd to meeting him and was even hoping he'd let me give him a little hug.

Thoughts and prayers to Bob's family and the entire Dis team. Bob will be missed greatly.

We will all truly miss Bawb.

He always brought a smile to my face during the Podcasts and we really enjoyed his tours of the park via KAHT CAM. One of the greatest gifts in the world is the ability to laugh at one's self. Bawb personified that, and never let the ribbing get to him. He was always informative and will be missed.

I don't really know what to say, I never know what to say at these times. I do feel as if I have lost a friend, even if I never met him. My thoughts and prayers go to his family.

RIP Bawb, you will be missed by many.

I'm crushed. I just got someone else to listen into the podcasts... much on my description of all of the team as anything else... told my friend that Bob was the most wonderful, sweet, and accidentally hilarious person that anyone could ever hope to find in this world. And I couldn't wait to meet him... Guess I'll have to wait a little longer.

Now I know heaven is a light crowd day with perfect weather in WDW...and Bob's already there... with the most perfect Dole-Whip...and a smile on his face...getting ready to show us everything we don't know about when we join him.
God bless his family, his Diane, and his wonderful friends...

We'll miss you, Bob.
