Bobbie was an inspiration and a great testimony to all who knew him. We were privileged to be in the same SS Class and work with him in Jolly Sixties!! He always had a smile on his face and a song in his heart!! He will be greatly missed , however he was ushered into Heaven with a “Welcome Home, thy good and faithful servant”. Prayers for Ruby and Donna and the rest of his family.
