John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: The Pizza Bob Benefit at Milliken's Reef in Port Canaveral, Florida

The Pizza Bob Benefit at Milliken's Reef in Port Canaveral, Florida

Freedom of the Seas sailing by Millikin's Reef in Port Canaveral. People came from all over to attend a benefit for the family of well loved local entertainer "Pizza Bob Neace". The event happened Sunday 11/22/09. Bob's website is www.pizzabob.com

The Billy Lee Soul Review with photos of Pizza Bob. He just suddenly dropped dead from a heart attack and leaves a wife and four children. I guess when your time is up, it's up. The bottom line is he had a ton of friends and fans and will be remembered for a very long time. What more can you ask for?

This is what the beach looked like on my bike ride before I went to the benefit. Do you think Pizza Bob is out there somewhere?

I feel blessed to live where I do and this benefit is a reminder to enjoy every minute of your life because you never know when it will all end. Happy Thanksgiving!

John, looks like a great benefit for a tragic happening!  I hope that they raised a lot of money!

John, that was really neat with the cruise ship going by. Maybe Pizza Bob was floating above? I hope the benefit raised a lot for his family!

What a shame for his family - and how nice that so many came out to honor him, including YOU!

What a sudden loss for the family. How wonderful that the community had this fundraiser for them.

Tony and Darcy - I don't know the numbers but I think they did pretty well.

Marney - I think I saw Pizza Bob in a cloud over the ship :-)

Myrl - Not quite my friend. It would be a lot better if everyone was employed and spending money again. In the meantime I'll just have to enjoy the beach :-)

Debi - I wouldn't have missed it. The bands were awesome and all for a good cause!

Lee and Carol - It was pretty sudden alright but who knows when your time is up?

I just found out they raised $4700 plus the proceeds from the silent auction. Every little bit helps!
