Bob Cranshaw has touched the hearts and souls of thousands of people across the globe with his music, his generosity and his kindness.  The marks he has made during his decorated lifetime are engraved for eternity in the journals of Jazz and in the hearts and minds of so many people around the world.

Bob is bravely battling stage 4 cancer that is aggressive and relentless.  While his family is eternally grateful to   The Jazz Foundation of America for their generosity and support, he and his family now need 24/7 care.

Many of you have offered help, so now is the time and here is the way you can give back to this wonderful man who has given us all so much.

Time is of the essence.  If you wish to make a donation please do so today.  Funds will be used immediately for the 24/7 home care that will provide comfort and support to both Bob and Bobbie.  

Thank you and god bless!

Hi all,

Go Fund Me apparently send a spam within my last note asking for more donations and to promote this on social media.

We do NOT want donations and we DO NOT want any promotion of the memorial per my earlier note.

I have shut off the campaign and have reported this to the GoFundMe people.

Apologies!

We have finalized plans for Bob's Celebration of Life and as promised I am sharing details here. My one ask: Please do not promote this broadly. The memorial is meant for close friends, family and colleagues per Bob's wishes. He will not be happy if the close people in his life do not get a seat!

Thank you all so much for the continued outpouring of love and support. It has meant the world to the entire family as we work through this enormous loss, and embrace a new kind of relationship with Bob.

I look forward to meeting many of you in January!

It is with great sadness that I share with you all the news that my step-father Bob passed away yesterday at 12;48PM EST. He died peacefully and without pain, in his home in Manhattan surrounded by loved ones.

The entire family is filled with gratitude to all of you who have contributed to this campaign, and have sent love and healing vibes our way!

We are overwhelmed by the outreach received over the last 24 hours and apologize that we are not able to connect with everyone directly. We need some time to process.

Details on his memorial, planned for after the holidays, will be posted here so stay tuned!

With love and gratitude

The Cranshaw Family

Met Bob in Miami at the Hampton House when he was backing Joe Williams playing with Junior Mance. I had a Jazz program on WMVJ and Bob took the time to talk with me. Many years later he was in the band that backed Peggy Lee at the Waldorf. Again graciously talked to me and my wife. You must get better. We in the Jazz community need someone as good as you.
