Bob is a widower, who lost his wife in 2016 after 47 years of marriage.

The divorce was a messy newspaper that made headlines with a series of bitter battles and allegations of adultery that were seen at the time to damage the family's name.
It turned out in court that Neil had sex with women who showed up in hotel rooms where he was staying in Hong Kong and Taiwan, but he insisted that they were not prostitutes.
Neil then married Maria Andrews, his current wife, whom he met when she worked for his late mother, Barbara.
Sharon later returned to court to try to get more than her $ 30,000 per year settlement from her ex-husband, but a judge refused her request.
Neil sued Sharon for libel for being accused of being the youngest son of Maria. A DNA test proved that he was not and the parties came to a solution.
