I am saddened to report that Bob Haller passed away unexpectedly yesterday at his home in Pittsburgh, PA. Bob was 61.

I guess I have a lot to thank Bob for...

SatelliteGuys would have never been started if it was not for Bob.

He was being a pain in the ass there posting the same thing over and over again and I had enough in the DBStalk staff area.

While I had no plans to ban him I was just venting Chris instead banned me from DBStalk.

Thus causing me to go on my own and create SatelliteGuys.

What was funny was he left DBStalk and followed me here and has been here ever since.

After that it took me a long time to “get” Bob. But after that I understood and starting liking Bob.

We chatted a few times.

One year for April Fools Day i pissed off most of satelliteguys by posting Bob was made an admin. He loved that joke.

Bob was very active in the Pit. In his memory I have renamed "The Pit" to "Bob's Political Pit"

Rest In Peace my friend. Thanks for helping me create all of this.

Can you donate using PayPal? When I closed the business, I got rid of all my credit cards.

Very sad when someone of that "young" age passes, or anytime when we loose one of our friends.

Even though politically Bob was wrong 110% of the time, may he rest in peace.

Think he wants to be buried in two urns?

Anybody got a link to an obit, because I sure can't find one that's his for sure.

Sorry to hear of Bob’s passing. I am not very active here but remember Bob from DBS Talk and DBS Dish way back in the day. Bob was a big Dishnetwork supporter back then, a lot of us were before the company got so big.

Bob and I always got along but I know there were some who struggled with him. I was glad to see he found a home here. I didn’t follow many of his posts here but it looked like they were always lively. :)

RIP Bob.

Good choice of words, “lively.”
