I met Bobby and Gloria while working at Bell Operations Corp, and I was always taken by what a loving couple they were. Years later Bobby and I worked at Trinity River Authority together, bumping into each other quite by accident. Bobby had the kindest way about him, and he had a smile that just lit up the room. My life and that of many others was enriched from knowing him, and he will be deeply missed. My deepest condolences to Bobby's family and everyone he loved and held dear. God bless.

Bobby Wallace was my uncle, my cousin's dad. He had a great sense of humor; his hugs always let me know how much he loved me; and he was always glad to hear from me and see me. But the one thing he did that earned him my love and gratitude forever was just a phone call. When he found out that my son had a traumatic brain injury and wasn't doing well, Uncle Bobby called me to just let me know that brains healed and my son's life would normalize. At that moment in time, and even now, just that simple phone call made all the difference in my world. I loved him. I will miss his presence in this world. RIP, Uncle Bobby. You've earned it. 💕
