i am sorry to hear about the death of Bobby. He was my first cousin on his mother's side. When we were growing up, we always had a good time at his home and our grandmother's home. We attended the same high school. My prayers and thoughts are with the family. Jean Haynes Wise

For many years, Bobby was the representative for Higgenbotham printing calling on the Admissions and Records office at JSU. Bobby was always the perfect professional working with the needs of our office while representing the interest of Higgenbotham. I considered him a good f4ien$ who always delivered what he said he would do. A super great guy.
