To have known Bobby was to love him. I will miss our visit with him every year upon arrival in Brunswick. He was such a kind hearted man with so much love and compassion. He was my angel when i needed one and helped me thru a very hard time. For that i will always be grateful. Until we meet again Bobby, love always.

I have no words that can express how much my life was made better because of my brother and confidant Bobby. As the tears flow through my personal sadness, I am so grateful to God that I had him to know and love, My life, my marriage, my son’s life, my shear existence was blessed beyond any human comprehension because of his being present for me- to listen to me, Really Listen, to understand and be compassionate about understanding my life struggles - I did not tell him enough how much I loved him - God Bless your sweet soul Bobby, I loved you so much man- and I WILL see you again in that heavenly realm, your brother, RV - by the way- YOU were the BEST Santa Claus EVER!!!!!😇

I will miss the drive to Florida as I always dropped in to se Bobby sometimes I would call him and other times I would just show up and walk into his workshop where I was always greeted with a warm smile and a cold beer.

Then we would proceed to catch up on our families. Then we would proceed to tell some great lies and jokes.

Bobby would always have something to warm up for supper.

On my back to North Carolina Aunt Betty would always make Chocalte Chip Cookies for Bobby and me, my Broher Don would mix the dough and Betty made the best cookies ever.

Bobby was truly a man of integrity and values. Many will never know the good deeds he did for others.

Only hope and pray that I will sit at the table with him and our family’s on my final day.

Well done life Bobby

Always thinking of you

I have so many memories of visiting Bobby while growing up and as an adult, trips to the beach and hanging out by the shed chatting about life and the world. Bobby taught me about loving unconditionally and being present to enjoy life in the moment. I'm glad my daughter was able to spend time with him on our recent trips to Georgia. This picture was from a day trip to Milldam many years ago. I adored Uncle Bobby and will miss him dearly.
