EULOGY FOR ROBERT "BOBBY" CARMAN: It's been a long and difficult road, but we are finally able to lay our brother Bobby to rest. Please join us in saying good-bye, and wishing our brother a safe, wonderful journey back home! Please feel free to visit this site and leave a kind word, small message, or a good memory you have of "Bobby". We are celebrating Bobby's life, instead of looking at his passing. As we all know, leaving this earth is not final. Our brother Bobby's life is not over, it has just changed! We will keep Bobby in our hearts and memories forever.. until we meet again...

Robert "Bobby" Carman, Son of Late Veronica "Ronnie" Lynch Walakovits, and step-son to the late William Walakovits. Brother to the late Denise Carman Arcaya, Rickey Walakovits, and Patty Walakovits. Brother to surviving siblings Tara Ofria, Sharron Sellick and Billy Walakovits. Uncle to Jennifer-Leigh, Lauren, Mikey, Manny, Samantha, Matt and Dyanna.

There are many great things to say about my brother Bobby, and I will start by saying he never had the shine he deserved in life. I can honestly say it started as far back as a child in our family. Coming from a large, loud, popular family, Bobby always managed to stay quiet, and fade in to the background. Coming from a family of 9, with 7 kids (all approximately two years apart) our house was always filled with neighborhood kids of all ages. Bobby was the one child out of all 7 that pretty much kept to himself. I guess you can say he was kind of a loner. When Bobby became of age, he followed in the footsteps of our father, William Walakovits, and joined the US Marine Corps.. There he traveled the world, and met many interesting people here in the USA as well as foreign lands. He loved the Marine Corps! He loved it so much, he re-enlisted hoping to make a life time career of it. A little more then 7 years into his career as a Marine, Bobby became disabled. Since becoming disabled, Bobby has lead a very modest life. Living simple and trying to enjoy the little things that most people take for granted. Bobby was a kind soul. He always cared and tried to help people. I could go on about the kind things Bobby has done to help people, but I'm not going too. I'm going to end here by wishing my brother a safe journey home. God-Speed Bobby, and may your light shine bright on the other side!! Though it breaks my heart another family member is gone, may we keep the love and memories of all deep within our hearts, until we all meet again..<3

RIP Uncle Bobby... My last memory of you was outside of the church in june; how i very easily pushed everyone else away from me- but couldn't break your grip no matter how hard i tried. Thank you so much for protecting me from that. Heartbreaking; but i know who you're with... Please watch over us & make sure everyone goes on rotation in teams watching over Aunt Sha, Ta & Billy-Joe. XoXo

To all of Bobby's family, Sometimes life is very mysterious. I think Bobby had a good life because he knew what made him happy and if being on his own did it than good for him. His physical body has passed but his spirit lives on. Jimmy and I are so sorry. We are your family........
