I loved that his humour was (is still) funny and no foul language.

Just good clean fun...

Thanks for the memories.....

Great American! He brought a little bit of home to Cu Chi, Vietnam, 1969.

I grew up near his house in Toluca Lake, and we went trick or treating there every year. He was always kind and boy, did he give out good candy! Anyone familiar with See's candy?

My Father fought in the South Pacific during WW2. He could not say enough good things about Bob Hope, and would not tolerate any thing he thought disparaged him in any way.

Thanks for sharing. A truly great American.

I still listen to his shows on XM Radio on the radio classics channel.

He was a great man and a better comedian that all of today's wanna be comedians combined.
