Bobby was born August 31, 1935, in Buncombe County, NC, to the late John and Mary Lou Anderson. He enjoyed traveling, camping in his RV, fishing, and spending time with his family and friends. Bobby was a master handyman and machinist who could build or fix anything he set his mind to. He loved using his gifts to help his family, friends, and neighbors and was the kind of person you could always count on, lending a helping hand often before you ever had to ask.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two sisters, Judy Craine and Peggy Penland.

Bobby is survived by his loving wife, Katherine Anderson. Two daughters, Mary Ellen Harrison (Richard) and Angela Sams. A brother, Jack Anderson (JoAnne). Four grandchildren, Clark Morgan (Amy), Tracy Gammon (Frankie), Brittany Sams, Amber Sams, and five beautiful great-grandchildren.

I am so sorry for Your Loss. Uncle Bobby was such a Good Man. He will be missed. I remember at Christmas time when he came to visit nanny and momma , some times I would be in the kitchen fixing goodies. He would make his way in there and sample the goodies and put his order in for some Chocolate balls . He loved sweets. He would come by and sit and talk to us and we would talk about just things in life. Aunt Katherine, I am so sorry, I Love you and I am here for you. Maryellen and Angie I am sorry to say , I know how you feel . Dad past away in 1988 and it still seems like it was yesterday. I miss him and Mom so much. I know that One Day we all will be together again. Love You All. Texie
