Sad, he was a very talented man, are used to always watch a show as a child, all the way, until I was a young adult, I loved the fact that he was an animal rights activist, the man was definitely kind and the fact that he deeply cared for the well-being of animals and the treatment of them deeply and profoundly inspired me.

We need more people like him.

his cameo in the movie Happy Gilmore showed what a good sense of humor he had. Rest in peace. Bless his long productive life.

During the Japanese whaling in the Antarctic, Bob Baker donated a ship to the Sea Shepherd which was named the Bob Baker.

"Barker gave millions of dollars to pro-animal causes, including donating $5 million for a 1,200-ton ship named the Bob Barker that was operated by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to stop Japanese whaling ships from killing whales off Antarctica."

Bob Barker! Come on UP! I can imagine God in heaven saying this to this iconic man.

My mom watched this show religiously, so as a result, I often did too.

Fun show, fun games, dreamy prizes and a warm kind man. RIP and thank you for the memories.

I'd care more for his loss had he not financially supported Sea Shepherd, a terrorist organization. Should've just stuck to entertainment.

Barker was 99

He got as close as possible to $1.00 without going over.

He’s definitely a legend. I loved his shows growing up. I always loved trying to guess the prices. RIP and thanks for the memories.
