Bobby Reeves

Abilene - Bobby Mac Reeves, originally from Woodson TX, passed away peacefully at his residence in Abilene, Texas on April 14th, 2021.

He was born on October 29th, 1952, to J.B. and Nellie Reeves in Throckmorton, Texas. He played football for Jim Ned and Cooper High Schools before going on to play at Rice University in Houston, Texas. He was also an honorary graduate of Baylor University in Waco, Texas.

More importantly he was a great dad, grandad, brother and friend. Bobby Mac loved his family and friends and truly impacted the lives of people that he met. He was definitely a memorable person, to say the least. Bobby lived life to the fullest and had a smile that would light up the room.

Bobby grew up in Woodson until the 4th grade. He loved this small Texas town and everyone in it. He was proud of where he came from and always said, "Put your hand on your heart when you say Woodson."

Proceeding him in death were his parents, J.B. and Nellie Reeves, brother Jim "Tooter" Reeves, sister Keely Jo Reeves, and daughter-in-law Sara Gross Reeves.

Bobby is survived by his older brother Clarence Edward "Chuck" Reeves of Waco, son J.P. Reeves of Abilene, daughter Laura Jo Reeves of Haskell, and grandchildren Brianna Roe, Rayden Wadley, Haylee Garcia, Mark Garcia, Lane Garcia and Carlee Reeves.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center - Kids Ward where Bobby Mac frequently visited the sick kids during his football playing days at Rice University or Meals on Wheels in Abilene. He will be greatly missed.

This has been such a loss for us all! Bobby Mac Reeves from Woodson TX was a big part of my life and his passing kinda took the wind out of my sails. But like he used to say “I’m too old to run, so I guess I’ll just stay and fight!” You fought the good fight my friend. I will miss you always.

Bobby was the biggest, loudest and most fun man in town. A girl couldn’t help but smile when Bobby Mac was at the end of the bar.
