Thanks to a listener to my live internet program tonight, I can now sadly confirm what has been speculated on the web almost all day long that broadcaster and economic news writer Bob Chapman has passed away on June 4, 2012. His voice and spirit shall truly be missed and prayers are out to his family during this trying time.
Robert “Bob” John Chapman, age 76, of Winter Haven, FL (formally of Mexico) died Monday, June 4, 2012 due to pancreatic cancer. He was born October 16, 1935 in Boston, MA the son of John Chapman and Ruth Donley Chapman. Bob was a veteran of the US Army, a writer of a news letter discussing finances and economics and a regular radio commentator discussing politics as well as economics and finances. Most of his working life he served as a stock broker.
Bob is survived by his wife, of 47 years, Judith “Judy” Dabrowski Chapman, son: Robert Michael Chapman, daughter: Jenifer Gillotti and her husband Matt, sisters: Dorothy Trecker and Joan Lotz and 4 grandchildren.
