In addition, Bob was a star on the television series Sing Along. Bob’s family members announced his death announced on Dec. 4, 2022, via Facebook.

Fans from all over the world have taken to various social media platforms to express their respects and condolences to Bob’s family, but what exactly happened? Can you tell me what ultimately took Bob’s life? What follows is everything that we are aware of.

According to reports, Bob McGrath passed away as a result of complications stemming from a stroke.

Sending up prayers! According to NPR, Bob McGrath’s daughter, Cat McGrath, revealed that the talented individual passed away unexpectedly as a result of complications stemming from a stroke.

Following the announcement that Bob had passed away by his family on social media, Cat made her statement.

“Hello, dear friends on Facebook, The McGrath family has some unfortunate news to relay to you at this time. The passing of our father, Bob McGrath, occurred today. According to what is written in the post, “He died peacefully at home, surrounded by his family.”

It is currently unknown when funeral arrangements will take place, nor is it known if there will be a memorial service open to the public. However, given the degree of candor with which Bob’s family has discussed his passing, we can anticipate that these particulars will be made public within the next few days.

A staple of ‘Sesame Street,’ Bob McGrath is a beloved character.

In addition to his work on the children’s program, Bob, who is now 90 years old, has contributed to a number of other Muppet-centered programs, video games, and singalongs that fall under the Sesame Street umbrella. These projects include 1985’s Follow That Bird, 1998’s Elmopalooza!, 1999’s The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland, and a number of others.

According to Deadline, Bob was also influential on the show by contributing a few songs, including the theme song and “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”

Although Bob officially concluded his run on Sesame Street in 2017 with the episode “Having a Ball” — after having been a part of the show for nearly six decades — his contributions will continue to be remembered in perpetuity.

Bob will be greatly missed by his family, which includes his wife Ann Logan Sperry and their five children.

We are keeping Bob’s family and loved ones in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
