I was very sad to hear this news so I did what I usually do to honor someone I miss and made a video montage. I used footage from the Kaht Kam, and some thoughts from this post. I will move it if anyone from the podcast team asks me to, I just did it to honor Bob, I hope you don't mind:

My thoughts and prayers are with Diana and Brian as well as with the Dis Unplugged gang.

I never met Bill but tears come to me as I think of their loss. I truly enjoyed listening to his accent (my mom is from Massachusetts). I just loved the way he would sound so innocent when the Dis Unplugged picked on him. And I loved his enthusiasm about all things Disney.

He will be truly missed. (tears falling)

One more lurker that wants to say I'm so sorry and to express my condolences. I'm just stunned right now.

I don't know what else to say, that hasn't already been said 100+ times. Clearly, Bob was a beloved friend to many! My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends alike.

Forgive me if it's been mentioned already, but I would like to suggest that a foundation or fund be opened in his honor. I, for one, would be honored to make a donation to something most near and dear to Bob's heart and hopefully something where the legacy that is "Bawb" can live on forever.

From my family to the Varley, Podcast, and Dis families.... deepest sympathies.

OMG - talk about a shock!
I was wondering why there wasn't a podcast today, and so I check just now only to find this out.

He will surely be missed.

I am very sorry, and offer my thoughts, prayers, and condolences. What a shock this is . . . .

One thing that was clear to me from listening to Bob -- he was a truly lucky man. Think about how many of us have such a love of Disney, and yet here we sit. Bob didn't sit. He made the move, he found the perfect job, and lived the dream. God bless him!

I am completely shocked I never had the pleasure of meeting Bob but I felt like I knew him for years. My deepest condolences to Bob's wife and son and his many friends. You are all in my prayers. Rest in peace Bawb.

This just totally shocked me to tears. Although I have never met Bob, I have felt as if all the podcasters were friends. I have warm memories of Bob mispronouncing my Dis name. Our thoughts are most definitely with all friends & family of Bob.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bob's family and friends - this is very sad news. I have only recently become addicted to the podcasts (technologically challenged, but finally figured it out) and enjoyed Bob's Bawston accent on so many cold mornings driving to work this winter here in Massachusetts. May he rest in peace - he will be missed.
