My sincere condolences to all the loved Bob. I know how hard it is to lose someone. R.I.P.

I am proud to say Bob was a friend and mentor. We did some corporate gigs together as well. He helped my son with his skills.
He taught me a lot. He was one of my sponsors to join the IBM. He introduced me to many magicians over the past 21 years.
I could go on and on. When Bob still lived on Long Island, we would see each other at least 10 times a month and sometimes more.

Thanks for the kind words, Steve. Just doing my job.

Bob was a wonderful, kind human being whose generosity knew no bounds. We'd walk through a mall together and he'd pull half dollars from out of just about every kids' ear that walked by us. He easily gave away between $30-50 a day.

Like many before me, my own magical capabilities took a giant leap after meeting Bob. He was very patient teacher. He loved watching me perform and making people laugh - I know that I made him proud.

Happy and the kids are doing well. This was not an unexpected event. He passed peacefully under the care of our local hospice, in his home with a beautiful view outside of his window. As many of you know, this was a blessing as Bob was just a very weakened shell over the past year. He's probably dealing seconds with Derek and JC about now...

Local magician, Michael Johnson, had created a web site to honor Bob and Happy. Please check it out at:www.magicianbobelliott.com.

Nothing quite like Bob will pass my way again. For the past two years I have been fortunate enough to be part of the "Take a Senior Magician to Lunch" program with Dr. Jeff and a group of others... with Bob at the core. While it was hard to watch Bob go from the constantly going magical wonder to the guy who openly wept ... because the loved watching magic so much... I still feel incredibly fortunate to have spent so many hours with him, and to be able to have both given and been able to give back to him. I'm sure Bob is in a better place now... and few men can say with a straight face that they've given as much as the "Great Elliott". To those who knew him, be proud for the experience, to those who didn't- know the world is a greater place for his being in it.

Bob was a dear friend from days gone by. I knew him well from our weekly sessions at The Magic Shop in Hicksville New York. He will be missed.

Dear friends and fellow magicians,
The date and location of the Bob Elliott Broken Wand Ceremony has been changed to January 13, 2011 and will be held at the L. I. J. Parker building., 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
A larger room was needed because members of all magic clubs on Long Island, New York City and bordering states plus his close non-magician friends are being invited.
Happy Elliott will also be coming from Cal. All are welcome for this memorial. Bob was known and loved by many.
All this has all been organized by Bill White and Ring 244.

Happy called and said she was doing "fine". Bob had a good visit with his kids on Thanksgiving. So she
was thankful for that.

I just wanted to let folks know that Happy Elliott is doing well.
She is still keeping an eye out for her friends in magic.
I look forward to a very nice project of hers very soon.

She is helping Tom Mullica with his return to the stage.
