Every time I saw Bobby he always said "Hey Tammy, how's it going?" A short simple greeting but one that always made me smile. That was Bobby. He made you smile. He made every day better. This hurts, a lot, and will for awhile but, I also know his smile, quick wit and continuous jokes will make me smile forever. It was an honor Bobby and you will be missed more than words can say.

We sat together for 5 years as board members of the SMU Lettermen Association. I asked him one day if Cadillacs were fun to sell. 15 years and a thousand stories later I will forever remember the great times we had talking about SMU and Cadillacs. His last words to me were congratulations. Thank you Bobby, for your laughter, knowledge and advice. Sabra, Alexis, Morgan and I will miss you. Thank you for being a part of our lives. Thank you for taking care of my dad for 20 years. Thank you for your stories and thank you for being you.

Bobby said good morning to me everyday coming into work. He set off a firecracker for me the day I hit service elite for the first time and I still have that firework. It meant so much to me to be celebrated by the GM of my store. Fast forward to just this last Friday and he was so excited for my move to F&I. He came to congratulate me and tell me that I was going to rock it. I am glad that I made you proud Bobby and I won’t let you down. I hate to say goodbye to you but you would say the show must go on. Bobby: “What time is it?” “It’s Showtime!”

Bobby was a genuinely nice person. His humor was always welcome.

Bobby was an awesome man. I was the head of the police security department for several of the Sewell dealerships and worked closely with him on many security issues. My wife and I also had the pleasure of buying multiple cars/trucks through him. No matter the reason for the meetings with him he always showed kindness, respect, honesty and a genuine care for every thing. The world has lost a one of a kind person. Bobby will be greatly missed by all who loved and knew him.

Well I worked for Bobby! Once when I sold 23 cars he came to my cube and sat with me for good 15 minutes and he congratulate me and only talked about asking me about my family. He was a great human being, a leader and a family man! Love you Bobby!!! RIP...
