Bob McGrath, Original Sesame Street Cast Member, Has Passed Away at 90

Bob McGrath  knowing best as Bob from Sesame Street, passed away earlier today at the age of 90, surrounded by his family when he passed.

But to many of us in Saskatchewan, we know him.Just as Bob from Telemiracle.

I never had the chance to meet Bob in person, but I did have the opportunity to speak with him on the phone during Telemiracle one year they were doing a knock down.

It was actually 2014. Facebook memories helped me remember this date.

In 2014 during Telemiracle they were doing a knock down and the incentive at the end of the knockdown was the last phone was going to be answered by Bob himself, and

whoever called to make a donation would have the chance to speak with Bob and Bob would take your donation.

And your information and all of that fun stuff.So yes, I timed it just right and made the call when I thought it would give me the best shot at getting through to Bob. And I was successful.

So, you know, we spent a minute or two on the phone, I made my donation and I got the pledge card in the mail.

And it was kind of neat to know that.You know, Bob, it was Bob's handwriting on the card.

So definitely sad news for us here in Saskatchewan, but so many people all over the world who have been touched by Bob and his warm, kind personality.
