Bobby Chapman was a one of a kind person. You knew that when you met him for the time. His personally, smile and kindness showed like a shining star. He had a heart of gold when it came to helping anyone who needed him. I know these
things about him because he was stepfather for over fifty years. He had a big part in moulding me into the man I became.
It was great to have him in my life. I will always love him and have a special place in my heart for him.

To Bobby’s wife Maxine & his family,
So sad to hear about Bobby’s passing. Bobby & I went to high school in Gary WV. I remember Bobby well, he was a quiet classmate but a very well dressed young-man. I think he was voted the best dressed in our senior class. May your memories brighten your days. Marie Kish Tabbert, class of 1958.

Bobby was one of a kind! Always smiling and joking! He had a heart of gold and was always ready to help in any way he could. He loved to visit family and share his story telling and have everyone laughing! When I think of you Bobby my heart smiles! I loved you and will miss you feller! I know you are in Heaven praising the Good Lord and reuniting with all our loved ones! When you see that little dark haired boy that we both love so good, give him a big hug from his Moma: and don't forget my Mandy! I know you will be rejoicing with everyone! Until I see you again Bobby, wait for my by the river!!!
