This is Gretchen Passantino, Bob's wife. I am sorry that you had not heard before about Bob's death. It was a shock to us all, but not to God, whose timing is perfect. Bob was so intense, so "on," so inexhaustible that it is as if he lived 100 years worth in just 52 years.
He had a massive heart attack on November 17, 2003. You can read about the details here: Bob Passantino, Defender of the Faith.
After much prayer and discussion, it was the unanimous decision of me, our Board of Directors, and our staff and volunteers that Answers In Action continue to minister, in fact to plan for expansion and multiplication of all that Bob started and what was so close to his heart. You can read about my commitment to the future here: We Will Continue. You can read about our specific commitments, needs, and plans in An Important Message from the Board of Directors.
No one can replace Bob Passantino. He was one of a kind. But God in his infinite wisdom and love has enabled us to continue in the same spirit and with the same love and commitment to helping others. If we can be of help to you, please don't hesitate to contact us. We care.
I will be praying for you.
Blessings in Christ,
Answers In Action
