Wow, what surprising and sad news. Like so many, I never met Bob...but certainly feel like I knew him well from the podcasts. To say he will be missed is a gross understatement.

Sending up prayers for Diana and the rest of his loving family.

This is terrible news. I will keep his family and friends in my thoughts and prayers. Tuesdays will never be the same. I feel lucky to have gotten to listen to his stories and park tips and that he made me laugh and smile with his Kaht Kam videos and empty dole whip treats for the podcast crew.

Thank you Bob for making me laugh, smile and now cry.

I am in shock! I just returned from out of town, because my father in law passed away late last week. I thought I'd get on the Dis really quick this morning to check out what I have missed.

I am SO sorry to hear about this, and I will keep all of you and his family in my prayers. As everyone else has stated, we all feel that we've known Bob for years, even though we've never met him. He was a great guy and will be missed.

Oh My.........I feel like a just lost a close friend. I can't even explain how my heart just dropped when I read it on the other board. I lost my father in 2005 and felt this same sadness. I mean I was even saying to my wife that because I used to call my father BOB that I had this connection with Bob Varley. I just feel a great emptiness. I really don't feel like working anymore today because of it. My heart goes out to Diana, and Brian. I would call up and leave a voicemail later expressing my feeling as I am tearing up just writing this post..................We love you Bob and everything you have done for. All the times that you made us laugh, and the true nature that you used to give to this show. I and every PodSquad member will miss you dearly.

WE LOVE YOU BOB!!!!!!!!!

Wow. I am so sorry. My prayers go out to all. Although I never got to meet Bob, I feel as though I have lost a friend. It has always been evident in the podcast how much each of you mean to the others. I don't really know what else to say so I will leave it at that.

I am in complete shock. I will pray for all of you Diana, Brian, Pete, John, Kevin, Julie, and Corey. I cannot imagine how heart broken and sad you all feel. Bob was truly like a sunny day or a smile. He just brought joy simply by being Bob.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Like everyone else on these boards, my thoughts are with Diana and the entire podcast crew & staff. I have become a huge fan of the podcast and Bob will missed greatly.

I came to the Podcast board to see when the podcast for this week would be up, and to see how Bob was feeling, then I read Pete's post about Bob. To say I'm shocked is an understatement. I read he was sick but to get this news is really mindblowing. I sit here with a heavy heart as I write this. I don't usually post here, but most can find me on the 'budget' board. I just wanted to wish the Varley family and the Podcast family my deepest sympathies and prayers. My thoughts are with you all at this time.
I loved listening to Bob and the rest of the crew every week. And just to reiterate what most have said before me, that even though I haven't met Bob personally, he (as well as the all the podcast crew) has become part of my extended family just from listening in every week.

What a sad loss, I just started listening to Dis Unplugged recently, but could tell right away the great chemistry the crew hadtogether.
My thoughts go out to them and his family... as well as the community that also mourns his loss.

Wow! I knew he was sick yesterday morning and I sign on today and see that he has passed. I can't express my sentiment better than anyone here beyond saying I felt like I knew him from the podcasts and how much he added. Also, it was obvious he had a heart for others and was always trying to be of help to them.

I will miss Bob. My prayers are with his family...
