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.
