Bobby was indeed a fine gentleman. Bobby's brother Jimmy and I were college roommates at TT. Three things I remember about Bobby all related to golf: 1) It was around 1966 or 67 and I rode with Jimmy to pick up Bobby for an early round of golf. Seat belts were just a novelty (no laws then) and when Bobby got in the car, Jimmy fastened his seat belt to which Bobby replied, "What are you doing? If you're gonna drive that damn bad, you can let me out." 2) Another early round of golf on a Sunday morning and we pull into the Meadowbrook Golf Course parking lot a little before 7:00 AM and we all remarked that we were the first one's there and should have no problem teeing off. It was still pretty dark and we started to get our clubs out of the trunk when Bobby suddenly remembered it was the Sunday to switch back to regular time, therefore it was really 6:00 AM. No wonder the parking lot was completely empty. 3) If I remember correctly, Bobby was a far superior golfer than his little brother Jimmy Dale..
Our deepest sympathies to you guys and the entire family.
