Just receive my hometown (Milan Standard) newspaper & was shocked to see the obituary of my lifelong, childhood friend. Bobbie Joe & I grew up together, attended & graduated from Milan High School in May 1953. We played sports together and were all very close during our younger years. The family is my prayers. Rest in Peace my friend.

I'm so sorry for your loss! Looking through the pictures brought back so many memories of growing up around Bobbie and his family. Nothing like being in the basement when Bobbie and the family sang their music.
