Community Comments:

Piercejeans: He is 91. The notice says his mother will officiate the funeral. That would make her about... 111 years old. Really? No way.

Rob Newhart: My name is Rob Newhart. My family will tell me when he is no longer with us, and I have not been told that. Besides, the claim is he died on November 2nd, when it was not even November 2nd in Bob's time zone.

Eric Arnold: Mr. Newhart is an American treasure. I know that he's earned the right to retire and relax but I do wish he'd make more cameos because he's very talented.

Will: Bob Newhart is still very much alive. Not sure why there's an obit, let alone one that has today's date.

Mary Ziegler: Where can I contact Bob Newhart? I am 83 and my husband and I laughed just as hard at the reruns of "THE BOB NEWHART SHOW" as we did in the 70s. I'd like to tell Bob how much joy he has given to us.
