He is survived by his wife of 22 years, Cindy, with whom he resided in Carrollton, Texas. He is also survived by his sister, Dr. Marilyn Henderson, wife of John, and their children Max, Kira, Katy and Marcus. Services will be held in Plano, Texas.

Cyndi - the first time I heard Bob's voice I was walking through the cafeteria at F&M. It sounded so pro. I was so excited the first time I met him. A real DJ. There were so many Bob Michaels stories around the station. I remember his custom "Bob Michaels" promo cart. I just read the obituary in the F&M Magazine. I was sad. Bob was a great guy. I'm sure you'll miss him.

Bob Michaels was one of the kindest and smartest men you ever met. I had the privilege of working with him at Arbitron. Not only was he a radio genius, but he was patient and would take the time no matter how busy to answer a question or solve a problem. Bob always, ALWAYS had a smile on his face! I will always remember that smile. Thank you Bob, for the lessons you taught us. God Bless You, Bob! Rest, my Arbi-Brother! We will miss you.

Cindy may God Bless, comfort and strengthen you and your family during this difficult time.

I just read the Lancaster Sunday newspaper this morning to see a good friend of mine passed away much too early. Like many others Bob was a mentor to me out of High School. He was my scuba instructor in the mid 80's and from day one we hit it off. We took lobster dives together, he got me a sales internship at Q106 and he loved sharing his survey books and radio ratings info. His enthusiasm and energy was amazing. After I graduated from Millersville '88 I wanted to be just like Bob, a successful business person. Jackie and I flew down right after Bob and Cindy built their house and I knew he would make it big in TX. Cindy you married a one of a kind wonderful man. I will miss his Christmas cards. We should all feel blessed that we got to be part of Bob & Cindy's lives. Cindy we are sorry for your loss and our prayers also go to his sisters family.

Bob will always be remembered as Mr. Christmas at our house. Visiting your house during the Christmas season brought great joy to us and to all of our children!

Bob's Christianity was expressed in ways that made a difference with people. He was kind. I will always remember him sitting faithfully in church with Cindy. And of course, as our 'train man' of Christmas - turning his home into a place of Christmas magic and wonder.
