Bobby cherished his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He was a retired business owner of a concrete finishing company and a veteran who proudly served his country in the Army. Bobby loved Western movies and in the words of John Wayne the "Duke" Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway. Bobby had an indomitable spirit and fought a long and brave battle with COPD.There was nothing Bobby liked better than an interesting conversation with friends and family. He always had a smile on his face and a joke on his lips.
Husband, father, and brother you are gone from our sight, but never from our hearts."
