Bob Southern Obituary
Bob Southern

Memphis, TN

Robert Neil Southern Jr. died April 13 after complications from an extended illness. He was 61-years old.



Bob's friends and family knew him to be a gifted satirist, a keen observer of the human condition, intelligent, witty and overall a fun-loving person. Bob was a blues man through and through. From an early age, he embraced the blues as a lens through which he observed life, and he was a connoisseur of delta blues music, historic guitars, of which he was an accomplished player, Americana folk art and, most of all, he embraced his home city of Memphis, where the tapestry of his life reflected and embodied the fabric of Memphis blues culture. Bob served the Bartlett City Schools as their telecommunications officer.



He leaves behind many friends and family, including the love of his life, his wife, Kathy Katz, his father, Robert Neil Southern Sr and his wife Arlene Southern, brother Joel Southern, sister Myra Southern, Uncle Donn A. Southern and Aunt Mary Anne Webb, and numerous extended family members.
