I didn't know Bobby had passed away. We weren't together at B association for the blind, for many years. Bobby was always willing to help everyone. We shared a lot of jokes, meals, and fun. My condolence to everyone of the family, especially Kevin, whom I knew personally. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My favorite memory of Bobby is watching him watch the Otters play. And last summer he got to throw out the first pitch. He had such a passion for his home team. I can't count how many people stopped to talk to him because he is so well known and loved. He will be missed by our whole community.
