Robert ("Bob") McDaniel, from the Austin, TX area, passed on early today following a brief illness.

Robert had contributed over 2,500 posts to this forum over the sixteen years he was a member.

You may remember that he'd written two comb-bound books of mostly card magic:

THE ROYAL TREATMENT [published by Chuck Martinez in 1981]
and CARD VENTURES [published by Mickey Hades International in 1984]

Robert was an intelligent, successful, kind, and generous person. He never performed magic professionally but his family, friends, and former employees, when seeing him perform, all experienced his many hours of planning and practice. Robert was more than a bit of a perfectionist.

His other significant interest in life was music, being an expert at keyboards and guitar. One of his teenage bands in Louisville, KY made the local record charts a couple of times back in the sixties. One of his bands even had the honor of opening for The Beach Boys one summer. He still had a hand in writing and recording music and had, over the last ten years or so, mastered several of the current, high-end computer-based recording and producing programs.

Robert was one of the best of the best and he'll be missed. Smile
Like Bonnie Raitt said, "I miss Little Feat more than I miss being 8 years old." Long live Lowell and Richie!

I'm so sorry to hear this. Robert and I interacted on a couple of occasions (buying/selling magic here at the Café) and his courtesy and demeanor during our PMs always showed to me that he was a quality guy. Rest in peace, Robert!

Prayers for Bobs family and friends.

I never knew him. But just knowing he was a member here, he’s a friend.

God Bless you my friend. Thank you for being a friend to magic.

I googled his obituary. He was a great contributor to the site in general. He will be missed. Rest in Peace.

Seems like I was just having an exchange with him discussing a Magic Wagon prop.
I’m really shocked.
RIP Bob, and my sincere condolences to his family.

Wow.
I do know Bob. From here. We bought and sold to each other. He was always great to chat with.
Man, reading that made me tear up. No, it made me cry.

I’m thankful that he was a member here. And we all know him as a great guy.

God Bless his wife and friends and family.
RIP my friend.

And thank you for being a friend.
