    RIP. The courage of his dad to speak about this amazes me.

    Having dealt with Bob in the past, I am deeply saddened by his loss.

    That is truly sad news.

    I know few people in this business better than Bob Ryan.
    My thoughts and prayers to Bob and his family.

    What an absolute punch in the gut. I lost a 16-year-old son four years ago and Bob is right. Devastating is the only word that comes into play.
    Pray for the guy. It's the only thing that gets you through this.

    Absolutely horrible news. I enjoyed my many encounters with Bob and his son sounds like he was an outstanding individual. Horrible, horrible news.

    My prayers to the family.

    Ran into Mr. Ryan at an assignment eight years ago. Was a total gentleman to a small-timer such as myself.

    And please. I implore everyone who may show up. No conjecture, no jacks. Let's just give Bob our unanimous support and sympathy here.

    I can't say I know anything about Bob Ryan other than the persona he portrayed on Pardon The Interruption. My sympathies to him and his family nonetheless.
