I know that podcasts allow both hosts and listeners to connect in a very personal way, and I'm sure that many of you felt Bob was a friend, even though you may never have met him in person. The entire Disney podcast community feels a loss today as well.

Again, my heartfelt condolences to all of you who suffered a loss from his passing.
Wow, that means a lot to all us DIS'ers Lou. Your a welcome Disney community member and have brought us all joy also. Thanks for your kind words and welcome to the "family".

Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

Wow! I was shocked to hear the news about Bob. I've been on the DisBoards for a while and recently started to download and listen to the podcasts.

I want you to know that I thought Bob did a fantastic job and provided awesome comic relief to the show. Your voices painted a picture in my mind and I could only imagine how fun it was to record those sessions.

To all the staff at the DisUnplugged please accept my condolences.

God bless,
Bfrosty

Remembering Bob

I first met Bob in person last December when the DIS unplugged hosted a meet and greet, He was one of the first unplugged members I walked up to, so warm and friendly you could tell he was a very happy person and was excited about the turn out.

We started talking about “home” which Nova Scotia for me, and how I could understand everything he says on the podcasts, I started talking to him about his props and he told me he had them with him. He asked if I wanted to see the props that he has used in past shows, I said “you bet” and before I knew it he was heading over to the famous “kart” to get his props. He came back with a big bag filled with props. I got to see all the Simpson stuff he bought at 7-11 and his GIANT pen and note pad. You could really see that he was enjoying himself there with the other fans of the podcast.

After we talked about the props and he showed me the Christmas decorations he did to the “Kart” and we talked about Disney and how nice the swan and Dolphin hotel was. I think it was at that time he introduced me to his wife. Bob had a positive energy about him, he seemed to be always in a good mood and that came across in the podcasts and when we met him.

Hearing about Bobs passing upset myself and my wife, it was like a family member was ripped out of our arms well before his time. My heart and prayers go out to bobs wife and family, also to the DIS unplugged team and anyone else that had the enjoyment of meeting such a wonderful man. .

Bob I hope you are in a better place please say hi to Walt for us, I will never forgot how excited you got when I asked to see your props. You will be truly missed……
That's a great story. The more stories I read about Bob the more I wish I had been able to meet him.

It's wonderful, Lou, that you came over to offer condolences. Your point above is very true, and we have all lost a dear friend.

I was just headed to bed......going to downloaded the latest show and this!!!

I connected with Bob on those shows. He was so funny in his own way. I loved that he mispronounced everything!

He made me laugh back in January when he mentioned four people voted for him in Iowa and Kevin or John said something along the lines of "now we know anyone can win Iowa".

He entertained me........God Rest His Soul.

Long live Interventions.........oops...I mean Innovations!

We were so saddened to hear about Bob. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. He was one of a kind. I have loved all of the thoughts and pictures about Bob. We didn't know him personally, but through the podcast we feel like we did.

My deepest sympathies to Dianner and Brian and to the podcast crew. I have to say, I was very much looking forward to trying to find Kaht Kam on our upcoming June trip. Certainly he will be missed by us, the listeners, but I will lift up family and friends in prayer during this time.

I have to comment that maybe Bawb's fan club was bigger than he let on, given the outpouring here.

I'll miss you, I always loved your "family take" (low cost and going back for the nap!)

Wow, I'll be in Big D this weekend for the first time in a long time, and all I'll be thinking of, is just how much Bob loved this place. I can't beleive he is gone. You have to just rely on your faith and beleive that he is in better place.
