Legendary Detroit Broadcaster Passes Away

We at Serafini, Michalowski, Derkacz & Associates, P.C. are sad to learn of the loss of a Detroit original, Bob Allison.  Bob, passed away, recently, at the age of eighty-seven (87), following a fall at home.  Our condolences go out to his wife Maggie and their three (3) sons.

His long and storied career as a journalist, broadcaster and TV personality began on the radio in 1962 with “Ask Your Neighbor“.  The show continued to air, in one way or another, most recently on WNZK 690 AM, for well over fifty (50) years.  Bob, also enjoyed some local fame as the host of “Bowling for Dollars”which aired locally on “channel 4” before it became WDIV.   He worked throughout the metro-Detroit area and touched many listeners and viewers with his friendly voice and honest answers.

Our firm is proud to have been a regular contributor on the Ask Your Neighbor show during the legal hour, in the past, as a guest contributing host.  As a guest host, we got to know Bob and his son Rob extremely well and truly feel like we lost a great neighbor.

Knowing Bob, he would want us all to keep being “Good Neighbors” taking care of each other and keep trading those tips and recipes to make life a little brighter each day!
