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

Just good clean fun...

Thanks for the memories.....

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.

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