ABOUT BOB GOLDWATER ================== Bob Goldwater, a Valley businessman known as the "Father of the Phoenix Open" and the younger brother of an Arizona political titan, died Saturday morning at his Phoenix home, surrounded by family and friends, his son said.

Goldwater, 96, died of natural causes, said Don Goldwater, who lost his bid for the Republican nomination for governor in the September primary.

"He passed the way he lived - full of life," Goldwater told The Arizona Republic.

Bob Goldwater, a member of one of the state's most influential Republican families, was the brother of the late Barry Goldwater, the five-time U.S. senator from Arizona and 1964 presidential candidate who died May 29, 1998, at his Paradise Valley home.
