On the heels of the recent news of Bob Casale’s abrupt death (from heart failure, on Feb. 17 at the age of 61), friends and bandmates of the DEVO member are now rallying around his wife and children in order to raise funds for them. Casale passed away with neither a will nor life insurance.
At Devo’s Facebook page, a posting reads, “Lots of friends & fans of DEVO have been asking us how they can send condolences/gifts to the Casale family after the untimely passing of our friend & colleague Robert “Bob 2” Casale. A funding page has been created to help soften the huge blow this has been to his wife, daughter, and son. All gifts will go directly to The Casale Family.” (Gerald Casale added clarity, tweeting, “I have done what I can, but he had no will or insurance.”)
Here is the GoFundMe page for “Bob Casale Family Expenses” – as of this writing a little over $11,000 had been raised: http://www.gofundme.com/Bob-Casale-Donations
