I was hoping to see Bobby at the reunion also.  I knew him from kindergarten up and many years on the football field. He was soild as a rock and a positive happy guy. Rest in peace, Bobby.

Hate to hear this, Bobby was a good friend in High School. We camped and fished. God Bless his family. Getting old sucks, not for the faint of heart.

Happy Trails  R.O., catch one for me.

So sorry to hear of Bobby's passing. Started kindergarten with him at Rigdon Road, then graduated with him at CHS. A fine fellow and friend. Prayers and condolences to his family. Rest in peace Bobby.
