A typical smile from Bob at last year’s Save the Trees Festival in Alter Zoll

Sad news today that ‘American Bob’ Maribito passed away on Saturday at the Waldkrankenhaus in Bad Godesberg. I last saw Bob at Bonn Folk Club in February putting out chairs for late-comers. The thing was, you rarely saw Bob actually sitting in a chair. I have fond memories of him dancing in the sunshine to music on the Bundeskunsthalle roof with ‘the girls’ as he would always point out with a smile.

Condolences to his wife Anita and two daughters.

I’m sure you’re on your feet again at that big dance hall in the sky Bob. Say hello to Steve for us all!
