    Bawb was Disney to all of us! He brought that spirit to us, and he truly loved what he did. As I sit and contemplate what has happened, I am thankful for the fact that Bawb was able to live his dream. He often told us that he loved to meet people in the parks, and that he loved to be in the parks each time he went.

    I am grateful that we were able to experience Bawb's spirit through the podcast. He brought that wealth of knowledge and his own bit of humor that made us all better people for knowing him. Diana and Brian, please know that he made such a difference in so many lives. He will be greatly missed. Please let us know if we can do anything for you.

    I remember the dole whips, MoJeeToes, Curtains Match the Drapes, Kaht Kam, adding R's to everything, and I could go on and on ....

    We mourn him, but we must celebrate his life. He would want it that way, I believe. I will always treasure those podcasts. He still endures through them, and they stand as a great legacy of his spirit.

    Diana and Brian, may God continue to hold you and comfort you, and know that many are praying for you.

    Being a fellow native from MA, I loved listening to Bob on the Podcast. He reminded me of home.

    Such a very sad, sad day. My condolences.

    When I first saw the post I thought it was a joke, or maybe I hoped it was. I can't believe this, I never met the man & I have a tear streaming down my face. He was an awesome guy to listen to. I feel sick.

    I like everyone am shocked and saddened by the loss of Bawb... He was truly one of a kind who always made listeners laugh even when he was not trying.... although I had never meet him he was undoubtedly a kind soul who would give you the shirt off of his back if you needed it. He found true joy in his job and truly embraced the spirit of what Disney means to all of us.

    From this angle you could tell that working from Dreams unlimited was not a job but a joy. My thoughts and prayers go out to Diana and Brian.... may you find the strength to get through the day and continue to live the full life that Bob did and would want you to....

    Pete.. Thank you for building such a strong online community where our " imaginary" friends come to life… you gave us the opportunity to get to know Bob and for as shocked and saddened as we are I can only being to imagine the pain that you are all feeling now. Let the memories of a great person and friend comfort you and know that you have more people than you know sending prayers and pixie dust your way.

    Walt Disney was quoted as saying "I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained." Bob you entertained and educated us and you will be missed… May you rest in peace

    I am sitting here with tears streaming down my face for a man that I only knew through reading his blogs and listening to his voice on a podcast. Bob will be greatly missed and he was loved by many. I loved Bob's enthusiasm for NASA, space travel and Star Wars - three things that I love about as much as I love Disney.

    My heart and thoughts go out to Diana, Brian and the Podcast Family.

    I found these Bawb Words of Wisdom on his profile:

    Words of Wisdom: I just want to say what great friends I have found on the DIS. With me being unable to work it was the DIS that kept me from going looney.

    What a testament to him!

    We will miss you!

    I will have Bob's entire family and the DIS Unplugged crew in my thoughts and prayers.

    Even thought I never met him I have listened to the podcast since the beginning and I feel like he is just another friend that I have known for a long time.

    Along with all of the other disers please know my thoughts and prayers are with the Varley family and the podcast team. I just happened to watch today the video clip of Bawb snoring in his chair in his office while the crew talked about his ability to take those "power" naps. I was laughing out loud. He will be missed. But how wonderful to be so loved by folks who had never met him.

    I will miss Bob's good natured banter with the rest of the Podcast team. The show will not be the same without him. We will keep you all in our prayers.
