Rest In Peace Bob Wood

It is odd how this affects me, as he was and online acquaintance and i didn't know him that well, but on visiting the Mac OSX forum after an absence of a few month and coming face to face with the sad news that Bob Wood aka bobw had passed away, i was deeply saddened.

about Bob

It is with much sadness to inform you that Bob Wood (aka Bobw) passed away in his home last night. His son informed me of the news, and said that he was found sitting in front of his Mac, he died doing what he loved most.

Bob was a retired business owner, who spent time helping people with their computers. Bob's contribution will be sorely missed at, as his contribution to this site went unmatched. Back in 1997, Bob Wood joined up as a volunteer on No Wonder. Bob went on to answering the most Mac questions of anyone on the volunteer team that numbered around 1000 people and even more. In fact, he had answered several thousand more personal support questions than the next runner up. After No Wonder's acquisition, Bob stayed on board under the new ownership and continued to help out. He later came and joined, and has been an invaluable asset to this site. In true Bob fashion, he out-shined everyone and has answered thousands of questions here at in the personal support area, not including all the help and support he provided in the forums.

as i say, i didn't know him that well and we hadn't chatted on AIM for quite a while, which saddens me the most, my condolences go out to his family

Rest In Peace Bob
