I have many fond memories of Bobby from our time working together, travelling in Europe and also back in Dallas. While we hadn't been in touch for a while, every time I saw a photo of him pop up on Facebook and saw him smiling, I remembered the good times we had together and can't really come to terms with the fact that we won't get the chance to catch up again sometime in the future. RIP mate. My deepest condolences to the family.

Having spent much time around Bobby both on and off the clock and in multiple countries. I know he will be missed by those who are closest. Bobby was always a beacon of brightness full of happiness and joy. It was with great pleasure that i got to work with Bobby. Bobby will continue to brighten and motivate those around him on his next journey. RIP my friend Bobby G. May we have another beer or shot when we meet again. Patrick (aka PL)
