I ran into Bobby one evening about 5 or 6 months ago, it had been several years since we had seen each other, but we sat there and talked for about 1/2 hour, had a couple of good laughs, such a good time, Bobby was just a really good down to earth guy, he will missed.

Lila Schmidt

July 10, 2019

He was a sweet child that became a sweet man. He was so cute and funny as a little one. His Uncle Eddie used to hide and jump out at him and then Bobby would do the same to him. That became their “thing”. Such love , kindness and sweetness rolled up into one gentle man. The world is a poorer place without him but oh, so rich to have had him these many years. Love and good thoughts for all his family.
