November 24, 2016 - The City of Fort Wayne today lost a legend with the passing of Bob Chase. The legendary Fort Wayne Komets broadcaster was a humble and honorable man who was loved by so many.
In 2013, Mayor Tom Henry presented Bob with a “Key to the Fort,” which goes to individuals who’ve made an extraordinary commitment to the community through a lifetime of stewardship and involvement. The Key is a hand forged replica of the iron key that was at the Fort in the days of Anthony Wayne, circa 1790. Only four Fort Wayne residents have received a Key to the Fort.
Bob’s professionalism, character, humility, love for his family and dedication to the Komets and WOWO Radio are all attributes that made him unique and special. He will be missed.
