Bobby was the 1st born to Hayward and Annell Bowden. Bobby’s childhood was in a military family which took him to many places in the United States and overseas. Bobby had beautiful eyes that shone with love. He was a caring and gentle man who took care of his family with a strong sense of discipline and tons of compassion. Bobby was very mechanically inclined and paid extreme attention to detail, which made him a great piping designer. Bobby’s vast knowledge and kind spirit made him a mentor to many. His work helped him travel parts of the world and the United States as a professional designer.

In his spare time, Bobby loved to work on his classic and modern day fast cars. He was very meticulous on any task he endeavored. He enjoyed fishing, working around the house, and spending time with his family. He enjoyed classic music from the 1960's - 1980's. He was a cat lover and is now reunited with many of his animals. He was truly a great husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. He will be greatly missed each and every day.

Years will pass and hearts will mend But our love for him will never end After your journey to the heavenly sky Our Lord and passed family are waiting by Your presence will surely be missed Your life to us has been a precious gift

I worked with Susan and Bobby for years and love both of them dearly. The thing about Bobby was his smile reached his eyes. The soul speaks volumes through the heart and radiates to the eyes. Bobby was a beautiful man inside and out. You will be missed. Watch out for my Naomi Grace until we can see you both again. God bless you my friend.

Bobby was a gentleman, I had the pleasure of working with him and Susan on several occasions, a nicer couple you couldn’t meet.
Bobby was one of the old school designers and one in a million.

My condolences to Susan and the rest of the family.

Wow, where to start. So many memories. Green Field Stables, Uriah Heep, the little jetties. So long ago, but we remained friends and I will smile when I think of you. So much adoration for Susan. Knowing you was a gift and I am happy to have been such a small part of it. Ivy
