Missed getting a hug for bringing you your pink lemonade today, Bob. You would have been overjoyed to see the folks who shared your love of history getting together and sharing their memories. It was an honor and a privilege to know you.

I have known Bob since he was the tour organizer for other Civil War institutes such as I believe it was named The Virginia Country Day Society. I went to numerous Sarasota Civil War Symposiums as long as I had accounting clients in Florida and could justify the travel away from my CPA firm in Ohio while my staff did year end closings on my Ohio clientele. My many memorable tours and symposium include the Sarasota Civil War Symposiums, Stonewall Jackson's 1862 Shenandoah Valley Campaign in Chronological Order, Folling In the Footsteps of General Meade from Gettysburg, Following Charlie Roland WWII from England to the Ramada Bridge, the Invasion of Normandy, and many, many more. We both were avid Ohio State Sports Fans, Bob in football and I in basketball. We definitely had a great relationship and I truly am sorry that I just learned of his passing. I have been suffering poor health for now my sixth year and my travels have been dictated by dialysis three times a week. I had a long talk with Bob each month for the last six months of his life because of my inability to function but things have become better healwise. Sorry that I missed his celebration of life in December.

Bob, your tours both here and abroad were a delight. I'm going to really miss your enthusiasm. Trying to remember 1st CWEA tour with you, must have been around 20 years ago. The tours were just super! Say hello to R.E.L. for me. Rest eternal to Bob, O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon him. Amen.

For over a decade, I've ventured across the country from Seattle to attend your well organized and always entertaining CWEA outings. You'll be missed, Bob. Take care, my friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I always remember Bob for his cheery smile and he always said "GO BUCKS" to me because he knew that like him, went to Ohio State.

Bob was quite a guy. I had the privilege of knowing him for 27 years and enjoyed many years of the CWEA. He had struggled a long hard fight with his health but always kept a positive attitude. I always enjoyed and will remember our times in Sarasota. Rest now Bob. When I get up there, maybe we can call on some of the Civil War generals together. Love, Wally

My friend, when you walked in The Lighthouse I would light up knowing I was going to have the best day/night (both!). Your stories, jokes, music, and kindness always made my heart feel good. All my love to those you touched, we will miss you.
Lois Patterson left a message on August 5, 2018:
I was very sorry to hear about Bob passing. He was a great tour planner for the CWEA. I was a client for over 15 years and enjoyed all of the tours. I didn't know he had such a extensive family and was glad that they were there to support him at his time of need. He had many friends in the civil war community and will be greatly missed.

Deepest sympathies to Bob Maher's immediate family and Bob's extended Civil War Education Association (CWEA) family. Bob's many years with the CWEA leaves behind a legacy of work that is unmatched in scope to his many patrons. His input to the CWEA and the history tours community will be surely missed in more ways than the many patrons can count. Let us hope his legacy will be one of which his entire immediate family and extended CWEA family will be proud.
