Bobby and I go way back to the early 90's when we worked together at Brenntag Southwest (formerly Delta Distributors.) I always looked forward to my trips to Abilene and the opportunity to see my friend and colleague. We had fun playing golf after work. He introduced me to Joe Allen's steaks which were unbelievable. Bobby was a great man in more ways than one. He was a fantastic asset to the company but was an even better friend, mentor, husband and father. I am saddened to hear of his passing but know that he is in a better place, with family members who have gone on before him and our Lord. Prayers of comfort for you, Bobby's Family, and blessings always.

As a member of the Cross Plains High School class of 1965, I have many fond memories of Bobby and his sweet smile. I will lift you, his loved ones, up with prayer. I am so sorry to hear about his passing. May you take comfort knowing that his mother welcomed him with a smile and hug.
