My memories of Bobby, Butch, Preacher and Dottie go way back to when we used to camp on their property, fish in their ponds and ride a Honda Trail bike through their woods while Preacher was my pastor at FBC. Your family has always had a special place in my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of loss. I am glad that Bobby is no longer suffering and pray for peace and comfort to the family.

I have wonderful memories of Bobby and his family at First Baptist. Always enjoyed playing the piano for him to sing. I remember a favorite he sang was One Day at a Time. My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of sorrow. With Sympathy, Jean(McClure)Oljace

Bobby ALWAYS seemed to march to the beat of a different drummer - sometimes it was stronger than others. We shared a birthdate, so celebrated MANY birthdays together at Franklin Road Baptist Church. It seemed our families were joined at the hip - we did so much together so often. Butch and Bobby were my younger brothers. My heart hurts because of Bobby's passing - but praise God for the blessed assurance of a reunion some day - and for the knowledge that Bobby is FINALLY at peace. Blessings to Preacher, Dottie and Butch and families. Much love, Shush

Vivid, fun memories flood my mind of those long ago days at FRBC. Bobby is certainly included among them. My prayers are with your family, for God’s peace and comfort.

I have known Bob, Jennifer and Jason for a long time. To Jennifer and Jason, remember that I love you and am around any time you need me. I am only a phone call away. I have missed you all and now to see this in the paper, I am set back. I had no idea that your dad was in this bad of shape for this to happen. Take care and you are in my prayers.

Love to both - Valerie Donica
