Our San Diego IBM Ring 76 will be honoring Bob this Sunday, July 22 for all of his contributions to the magic community. We will be presenting him with a Tribute book containing notes/messages from his friends around the world.

Bob has touched many people throughout the years (just don’t let his parole officer know ... he was just trying to guess their weight). For those of you who may not be familiar with him: Bob served as the director for Tannen’s Magic Camp and taught magic to many young magicians (including David Copperfield). He also taught Harry Lorayne’s Memory Course and magic for Frank Garcia. His mentor was Brother John Hamman and he was best friends with Derek Dingle. Bob and his wife, Happy, have played host to many magicians at their NY residence. They retired to Oceanside, CA (San Diego County) almost 2 years ago. Bob continues to do magic, giving away lots of half dollar coins to kids on a daily basis.

We’ve received many greetings and notes from his friends. However, if you had not been contacted and wish to pass on greetings or share a story about Bob, please do so here (or PM me) and I’ll pass them on to Bob at the Banquet. If you’d like to contact Bob and Happy, feel free to PM me for details.

Oops - forgot to mention that Bob has absolutely no knowledge of this tribute so please do not mention it to him if you call him directly!

Bob is a fantastic man. He has helped and encouraged many magicians.
Greetings from Long Island. I have the pleasure of calling Bob my friend. I have also had the pleasure of working with him. I have learned a lot from him.
My son Zach has also known and learned from Bob.
Send him our best wishes. I know Bill White visted him and Happy last week. I will get the report on Bob's health.

Thanks, Harry.

Bill never made it out here as trip was cancelled. I know that Bob was looking forward to joining him for an evening at the Castle.

Bob and Happy are doing very well. They've adjusted to southern California (tough putting up with the blue skies, palm trees, and mild temps.... I moved out here from NJ in '88). His health is stable and he's getting around quite well. We drive to local magic shops and meetings together. We recently met Bob Fitch up in L.A. and John Carney down here in San Diego. You can see some recent pics of Bob on my website at: http://www.medicine-in-motion.com/News%20Update.htm; (Check out the following dates 7/4/2007 and 11/6/2006.)

I'll pass on your regards. Thanks for responding!

Thanks to all who responded to the call! We had a marvelous event and caught Bob completely by surprise. The tribute book was full of nice stories about Bob from magicians whom he's affected over the years including Michael Ammar, Chriss Angel, Aldo Columbini, and many other names who so often grace these forums and magic magazines.

Magician Michael Johnson has posted a summary of the event, as well as pictures, on a website that he created especially for Bob: http://www.magicianbobelliott.com. You can also view pictures of Bob taken with many of his friends over the years.[I expect that many of the tribute stories will be posted as well when Michael gets a chance.]

Thanks, again, for all who contributed. Bob was very appreciative of your kind words.
