Dear Cantrell family, I’m very sorry for your loss. Bobby was a friend to all and I considered him so for many years. Sorry I couldn’t make it but work requirements got in the way. RIP my friend.

Bobby was a large part of my life growing up he was one of my grandfather's, Floyd hayes, best friends. He is a large part of why i am a decent pool player. He is who my mother, Debbie Spicer, trusted with going and picking out my first ever professional cue. I will now treasure it for more than one reason. Im sending the most positive of thoughts to the family. R.I.P. Bobby
