I will always know Bobby as Joel’s big brother. He was fun loving and very smart! Joel and Booby has a special bond unique to even brothers! I always looked up to him and enjoyed his stories of adventure delivered with a smile and god humor. He will be missed by many of us!
Bobby was a fun loving guy. He loved playing cards, Backgammon, doubles table tennis, UVA sports especially basketball, and the Miami Dolphins football team. He enjoyed his life and lived it fully. Farewell Bobby in your new life.
Bobby it was a lot of fun playing cards with you. You always brought a positive vibe to the game…. Win or lose… now I see you have gone on to the final table. May all your cards be aces. Rest well Bobby. Peace be with you.
Every a Saturday morning, Bobby, our neighbor, would take my brother and me to the kiddie show at the Byrd Theater and we would go to the Peoples Drug Store then on the corner for a 25 cent hot dog for lunch. Great fun and memories!!
