Bob Cassidy passed away

Postby luigimar » February 24th, 2017, 4:47 pm

From David Oliver on Facebook:

Magician, mentalist and legendary mentor to many, Bob Cassidy has passed away. We were merely acquaintances. I only met him once, but I know of his impact on the industry. A sad day, indeed. Rest peacefully, good sir.

I got on very well with Bob. I didn't know him at the time but he once sent me an email out of the blue telling me how wonderful I was. Of course I knew that already. However, it was a nice gesture and naturally as a result I considered him a sterling fellow. He was a master of mentalism and I am sorry to see him depart this world.

Rest in peace Bob.

Bob was an absolutely brilliant man. He probably knew more about mentalism and performing it than anyone. It was a pleasure working with him on his books. We had two more planned but realistically I think there will now only be one more. He surely had his demons -- who doesn't -- but we never saw them. He will be missed.
