Robert "Bobby" Menes

February 15, 1976May 18, 2020

Robert "Bobby" Menes passed away Monday, May 18th, at University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City.

Bobby was born February 15, 1976, to parents, Robert "Bob" Menes and Rosemary Dailey. He will be remembered for his love of music and as a sweet and gentle soul who loved his friends and family very much. He started playing drums and guitar when he was in elementary school and quickly found his passion. He went on to learn other instruments as well. He is probably known for having his amp turned up too loud in his apartment. He enjoyed playing in many bands around the Quad Cities but primarily enjoyed playing in the band Unsound with some of his best friends. They especially enjoyed playing at Uncle Roscoe's Polo Club in Davenport. He was known for being funny and always making people laugh.

He is survived by his father, Robert "Bob" Menes; his mother, Rosemary (Bob) Dailey; and sister, Jennifer (Spencer) Zimmerman.

No services are planned at this time, but a Celebration of Life Gathering will be occurring at a later date.

If desired, friends may make memorial contributions to the family who will then donate to the Quad City Rock Academy in his name.

It's been a few years, but shared lots of good memories with Bobby. He always had a smile is my biggest memory. Hanging out at his house, the mall, the park, watching him play at Uncle Roscoe's ,backyard tent camping in Darwin's dads back yard and running into him at Moline Kohls a few years back ( still smiling as he ran up to me).
My thoughts are with his family & loved ones.❤
