Great memories of Bobby while working together at State Farm. He was always cheerful and funny! He had a way of making you laugh even when you didn’t want to. So glad I got to see you a few months ago and reminisce on the good ole days. Bobby, may you rest in heavenly peace!

Where does the time go...Seems like only yesterday we were raising our boys in the old neighborhood, playing ball, watching NASCAR and loving life. Bobby was a dear neighbor and friend to us. He was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Brandon, I know he’s gone way too soon but a lot of people never get to feel a love like your dad had for you. May he Rest In Peace and always live in your heart. Our sincere condolences. Ron, Pat, Nick and Jake McElhaney

Bobby was always the kind of person you liked to be around. Always cheerful and upbeat and kind to everyone. But most of all, the kind of person, that will surly be missed.

Bobby we have been friends for over 25 years. We have shared a lot of thoughts and drinks both good and bad. I will miss you so much. I will see you one day and we can laugh about everything we have talked about all of our lives.

Bobby was a special person and will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and may his memory live on as we reflect on the impact he had on many people.

Bobby May was probably the funniest, most irreverent, nicest, hilarious, obnoxious person I've ever known, and I loved this friend of 30+ plus years dearly. I still absolutely can not believe he has left this earth. I have to think he's waiting for the rest of us to get there, where we can laugh and talk for all eternity...If we've been good enough people.
