LOS ANGELES, July 28 - Bob Hope, ski jump-nosed master of the one-liner and favorite comedian of servicemen and presidents alike, has died, just two months after turning 100. Hope died late Sunday of pneumonia at his home in Toluca Lake, with his family at his bedside, longtime publicist Ward Grant said Monday.

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES BUD.

It is a very sad day. He was such a clever pioneer of comedy in the United States. He will be truly missed.

He was surely one of my favorites. His USO tours will not be forgotten..../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

He did entertain the troops during WWII. Without the USO our troops might have been a little more battle fatigued.

Well, he had a good innings. (Brit- English for he lived a full life- what else can we expect?)
Let`s hope the rest of us are as fortunate. And yea, he was funny, in an American kinda way /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Bob Hope.....end of an era...that we thought ended about 30 years ago. I got lots of giggles out of his work. He sure was world's better than Jerry Lewis.
Can't say I will miss him but do respect his work and what he did for the troops. I must admit I'm more of a South Park humor fan.

Sad news indeed. Bob was one of my favorites along with George Burns. Well, bob always said he would live to be 100.

He never forgot the troops. Even in Viet-Nam, when it became popular for the Hollywood crowd to ignore the boys overseas, Bob was there for them.

God rest you, Sir.

Thanks for the memories.

Maybe you are not American.

I am not, either.

But this is sad news.

You thought wrong knucklehead.

I'll miss Bob. He gave me a ton of laughs. I met him once at a golf tournament. He was really a friendly guy.

Joking to the end. When his wife asked him where he'd like to be buried he replied...."Surprise me"!

I like it!

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.

S!

A great, Patriotic American !!


I saw him and his USO Xmas show (maxi or mini versions) three times in Vietnam and/or Thailand, and once in Japan. The shows were entertaining, and funny, but more importantly uplifting when we needed it...it's pretty darn emotional singing Silent Night when away from home in a combat zone...and that's the way he usually ended his shows, as I recall. I can truly say, "Thanks for the Memories, Bob!"





Sorry, but I have to add, that the outspoken and self-serving hollywood 'entertainment' types of today aren't worthy of tieing this man's shoes, let alone filling them. IMHO.

A great comedian and American. His wit and spirit will be missed.

Don't forget, he was born in England; his dad was an English stonemason and his mother, a Welsh concert singer.
