Mr. Bob was a super person and cooked the best Boston butts I have ever had! He was genuine and generous and he will be missed very much.

Bobby Gene Bailey as I called him Mr. Bob or Bobby. He was a friend and a father figure. Bobby was a fun loving person. He was my gentle giant. I remembered him showing me a half moon for the first time. That's when I knew, Bobby will be a friend for life. He was a true blessing in our lives and will miss him.
There's a great emptiness left by Bobby's passing, but I am certain that the strength of love from his daughter Mary Lynn and her family will live forever.

No words can describe how sorry I am for your loss.

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Bob at Gwatney Chevrolet a few years ago. He was a kind, cheerful and respected man. I was honored to call him my friend.

Anytime one thinks of Bob you can’t help but smile and laugh recollecting the stories. He definitely left his footprint on all who came in contact with him and your relationship with Bob dictated where that footprint was placed. Many condolences to his family and may those special memories carry through in difficult times and bring a smile or laugh
