Brother Bobby brought the vision and compassion for the inmates to our country in Brazil.
I had the privilege and opportunity to travel all over Brazil with him, I could see in his eyes love for souls.
May God comfort all of us, specially the family during this time!

Mrs. Ruby we are praying for you! Preacher Bobby was a great man who served a great God! He fought a good fight, he kept the faith and finished his coarse. Many prisoners were set free by the gospel Brother Bobby preached. Praying for the family.

Our Pastor, our mentor, our friend, Pastor Bobby Sizemore is now in the presence of our Savior. The one and true God he labored with for many years. Bro.

I have fond memories of visiting Westside Baptist as a teen and spending time with Beverly. My heart is saddened to hear of Bro. Sizemore's passing, but I know he's rejoicing on the other side. Praying for the family. May our Heavenly Father grant peace and comfort during this time.
