God bless you Miz!

I noticed someone started a thread on DT, I was kinda hoping it would be kept under hush as we just don't know what will happen to his account now...  hopefully his stock legacy will transfer to a member of his family.   Even with a will and legal documents it might be a challenge with the local laws of other countries.

I liked his work, and he always made me smile.

My sympathy goes out to his family.

Sad news. Though billed as a new member I have been reading this forum for some time and Roberts postings have always given me a great laugh in between the serious stuff. Truly, sadly missed. David

He had great sense of humor!

My condolences to the family. R.I.P.

I think the most honorable thing we can do in remembrance of the Miz is to tell it like it is, as he would do. As others have already said, he was a caustic presence around here. If you were to ask me about him, I would simply say that the guy was a jerk. Still, he was a dedicated artist and member of this community, as well someone who served his country in the military, and for that I can respect him. I also respect anyone who battles cancer, and hope that someday in our lifetimes these types of deaths are a thing of the past.

Wow.  Want to hear another interesting fact?  This, I just learned from speaking to his sister Wendy on the phone.  Bob Mizerek was actually COLORBLIND.    That amazes me.  His images were always vivid and full of color. 

Thanks for all of the nice responses, everyone.  Bob certainly left his mark on the community.

Very sad ... God bless you Miz and your family!

Very shocking news. A controversial person, indeed, but I learnt a lot from his tutorials.

I hope his creative imagery stays online perpetuating his name and generating income for his family.

Very sad.  Although controversial, I thought he brought a little life to the forums - sometimes too much life, but life nonetheless.

May he rest in piece, sad news.
You will be remembered MIZ.

I may not post much, but I truly enjoyed his posts. I was wondering where he went. Always looked for his posts. Forum will not be the same without him. May he rest in peace.

Never got to know him very well. Hope he has found some contentment away from the physical world.

Hello All,
I am Bob's sister Wendy, and want to send a big THANK YOU for all of your heartfelt thoughts, wishes, and prayers.  It is wonderful to see how many people Bob and his work touched.  While he certainly was outspoken and opinionated, it is obvious that many of you respected his work as colleagues, associates, and friends. I am touched by your words of comfort, snippets of your interaction with him, and mostly that you took the time to care.  I certainly want to see his work live on and will help make that happen as best that I can.  If there's anything you want to share personally, please don't hesitate to contact me at:   newbielink:mailto:[email protected] [nonactive].  I would love to hear from you!

Thank you all again,
Wendy Mizerek-Herrburger

Very sad news, my condolences to the family and to you Wendy.

Sad new indeed... All my condoleances to you Wendy and your family

Robert's presence to the stock forums was priceless.  I'll always remember his contributions, not only here, but earlier on SS where his photoshop renderings ("the landing" comes to my mind) and his sense of humor (self-elected queen/king of the forum and Miz-points) were attracting hundreds of views.
He never considered himself an expert, thus he inspired so many newcomers.  He didn't depend on the stock financial income, so he was free to explore, and broke quite a few boundaries in the process.
Thank you for letting us know of his departure, all the very best to his family.  Thinking especially of you Wendy.  We'll definitely miss Robert.

This is so sad!  Fifty seven is just way too young to pass on.  Deepest condolences to his friends and family.

I really enjoyed his "cranky" postings, musings, and perspective.   He will certainly be missed around here.  :(

Im truly sad .  Only thing you could do to annoy me  beside posting stupid posts every few minutes, that I just had to read , is to stop posting for good. And you did it again. From one end to another , like always.

So , YOU SUCK really really bad on iStock, and your user name is vacuum , well , some things will definitely SUCK without you , and my user name is Lizard.

I hope you had a good life  , and rest in peace  MIZ , many people here will remember you.

Wendy , my condolences to you and to all your family .
