Bobby and I were roommates our Jr and Sr years at TAMC. Both engineering majors and close friends. Saw Bob and met Barbara at our 50th reunion in April '10. He was a great one, and I will miss him. Rest in Peace Bobby

It was always great to see Bobby tooling around on his riding lawn mower in his "Lyndon Johnson" hat! We will miss his quiet neighbourly smile.

I was privileged to be a Secretary in Program Management at Hercules in McGregor when Bobby was a Program Manager. It was wonderful working for such a nice Christian man. His wife, Sue, was the Secretary at Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit in Waco, where our daughter and her family are now members. May Bobby rest in peace and may the family be comforted in knowing that others care.
