    Fans of The Howard Stern Show knew him as Crackhead Bob.

    It was with sadness that Stern announced on-air Monday that his friend and former Wack Packer George ‘Crackhead Bob’ Harvey had been found dead at age 56.

    The radio show posted a touching photo to Instagram with the caption: 'Rip George "Crackhead Bob" Harvey. We speak your name. #RIPCrackheadBob #TippyTippy.' He also said, 'Gone too soon, we'll miss you.'

    Stern said Bob’s father had found him in his apartment in Texas, but the cause of death was unknown.

    Crackhead Bob was a regular guest on the show from 1995 to 2001 and got his nickname because of a speech impediment.

    The lively character first became known to Stern's show staff after he was noticed at several of Howard's public appearances in the mid-1990s.
