Ms. Judy, Dean, Mark, Holly and your families I send my condolences. Mr. Bobby gave me a job when I was a teenager and along with a lot of other teens from Corbett town we got to “work” and goof off a lot. He was always laid back in dealing with us and for that I was always grateful.

May this message find a way to give you comfort and peace during your time of need. I want to offer my prayers to your family. I also had a father that loved fishing and watching westerns. That's how I became to love fishing. Peace be still.

Judy and Family,
Bobby was my "pine straw" man for several years. I always enjoyed seeing him. I have missed his deliveries since his health began to decline. He was such a gentle soul. The world needs more people like him.
