I am so sorry to hear of Bobby’s passing. It has been a long time since I have seen him. We were friends at UL and later when he worked at IberiaSavings.

It was always evident that he loved Susan and his family.

What I remember the most is he always had that beautiful smile. He was always happy to see you and then crack a joke.

I pray that all your happy memories of him sustain you during this difficult time.

Susan, Shellie, Nancy, Mary, and Family,

Bobby was such a pleasure to work with - his professionalism was exceeded only by his sense of humor and willingness to "tell it like it is." I am so sorry I am unable to attend services. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

God bless and much love,
Ken Brantley

To Sue, niece and nephews;
I know there is nothing I or we can say to take the pain your feeling for the sudden death of Bobby. We can never say if there is a correct way in passing, but you have told us that the way he passed was the way he always said he wanted to go. As difficult as it is, life does continue and only time will heal. for those that knew Bobby, well knew he could be hard headed and ornery. But, I could see thru that and knew he was as soft as they come when it dealt with you, his children, but most of all the grandkids. I look back and can remember so many memories about him. To him I was always the little brother. Even though I really was, it was him calling me "T Boy". When he was in high school he would take me to the NISH football games on Friday night with his buddies. I would get all the popcorn and candy I could eat. On the way back home they would carry me on their shoulders. The time we spent helping him install swimming pools. There is to many to list.
I wish there is way I could tell him that I will always be here for you and the kids and that he never has to worry about anything.
Bobby, yes you have always been and will be my true big brother.
"The best brother a brother could ever have. " Bro" I will forever miss you and will always wish you were still here. I know in my heart will had a special bond that no one could see, but we felt it.
I will always Pray for your soul to have Life every-lasting and that the good Lord will take you into his Heavenly Kingdom.
Your little brother
