Announced on his son's partner's FB page, but not confirmed in the
news. His son, John Roberts, is an old friend and his dad, Bob, lived
in the Malibu Colony for many years and was widely respected and his
company enjoyed.

Bob had a long career as an announcer, narrator - and what has been
more recently termed, a voice actor - and his rich, melodic voice was
instantly recognizable. More later if the LA Times picks it up.

Did he go by the professional name Bob Warren, or am I messing the facts up as usual?

I think you're spot on as usual.

I'm writing for a friend who knew Bob Roberts back in the day. Do you have any contact info for John Roberts or can you tell me the name of his partner so we can check his Facebook page? Thanks. Randy McCarthy

John died right after my dad died. The last time John called me I didn’t answer cuz I was mad at him. One morning I woke up and said to myself “For some reason I don’t feel mad at John anymore” . Then I heard he had died the day before. Was that why I was no longer mad at him? Sad
