Anyone who has ever traveled on Andrews Avenue coming into or leaving Henderson over the past few decades can tell you about the smiling gentleman who would sit on his porch in good weather and offer a wave and welcoming smile as you passed by. On days when the weather wasn't so good, you could always catch Uncle BoBo sitting by his front window observing everything going on outside. He will be missed by all, but never far from our hearts. The memorial will be held at The Comfort Inn and Suites at 1 p.m. Sunday, 1000 Linden Avenue Oxford, NC, US 27565
