After serving, he worked for Mason-Dixon trucking until his retirement. Bobby was also a Mason and Shriner.

Including his parents, Bobby is preceded in death by a daughter, Mary Alice Mongold, four brothers and four sisters.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of 51 years, Wilma Mongold; sons, Randy Halterman and Mike Halterman; daughters, Wanda Fry, Linda Carpenter, Lorri Ann Goebel and husband Billy, and Jennifer Shelton and husband David; sixteen grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren.

I knew Papaw as a grandson. For me, he was the best grandfather you could ask for. When we were growing up, he was a giant, he is still a giant in my eyes, both metaphorically and physically. I remember he would often share with us his wisdome, whether it be about the weather or about how to tell when a watermelon is ripe - I still remember when he showed Lucas, mom, and I that trick. Honey is something he and I bonded over - he had it in his coffee everyday; since then, I have it in mine everyday, just like he does, since we shared that moment, and so I could be a little bit like him. He was always nice and warm to us grandkids, even if his voice was rough. I'll never forget that about him. Although he is missed greatly, even from the other side of the world in Melbourne, Australia, I am glad he is now at peace. We love you, you will always be my Papaw.
