Bob Newby came into Will and Jonathan’s lives as their mother, Joyce Byers, new boyfriend. Will was okay with having him around, but Jonathan wasn’t as fond of the newest addition to their family. Bob hangs around the house and even sees Will having a nightmare, but he doesn’t understand what Will has been through in season 1 of Netflix’s Stranger Things. He’s kind and caring to bring Will some medicine thinking that he was sick.
Bob joins in on some of Will’s attempts to save Chief Jim Hopper but ultimately gets himself into trouble. Bob is brave and offers to protect Joyce’s family by sacrificing his life to help them escape from the Hawkins Laboratory. The Byers family is lucky to have someone that will stand by their sides and protect them the best way he knows how.
