Bobby enjoyed rolling in the floor with his kids, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His love for his family was abundant and his devotion to his Lord was evident in everything he did.
His family was the light of his life and he loved taking them on long walks in the woods discussing God and nature, or sitting at the foot of the waterfall watching God's beauty at work.
He spent 34 years lovingly chasing his devoted wife and passed in her arms as he wished. Bobby went home to be with his Lord and Savior on May 19, 2014.
