I have so many memories of my uncle Bobby. What I will remember most about him is how compassionate, hard working and loving he was. He would help anyone out without anything in return. I loved being a part of Easter with the Hall family. I will miss his since of humor, his laughter and I could go on and on but I think I will just miss you uncle Bobby. Hold my babies tight till I get there. ❤️

Trey remembers all the family functions he hosted over the years.
I remember him always hanging back, listening, and eventually piping in with a few words of wisdom that were always simple and on point! Plus a few smart ass remarks that always cracked me up!
Sam remembers him always warming his butt in front of the campfire 🔥

Bobby taught me to be one hell of a pipe-layer! He gave me my first chance to dig underground and his help and faith in me made me the operator I am today.
Bobby was a great man and good friend.

What an amazing man that not only loved his family, but also all the strays that his children drug home! Bobby accepted and loved me, my husband and children as a part of his family. He'd set me straight just like one of his own kids if he thought I needed it! I'm thankful and blessed that I was lucky enough to have him in my life. Rest in peace and comfort - it is well deserved.

My memories of your Dad always involve his willingness to help. No matter what idea we came up with, he was always just a phone call away. I remember him letting us use his boat at Monroe. Then we got stuck. Bobbie called him and I remember thinking how mad he was probably going to be. Nope! He came right to our rescue with a smile on his face, fixed the problem and sent us back out to have fun. He was a special man and I envy the relationship you girls had with your Dad. I know this is a terrible loss for you all. You’re in my prayers.

Heaven gained a truly great man, he would do anything for anyone and my heart breaks for all his loved ones. I count myself privileged to have known him and his wonderful family. Anytime in the past when I didn’t have anywhere to go for the holidays, I was always welcomed in with open arms! I am praying for comfort and peace during this very sad time.
All my Love ...
