"I live out of the area and just learned of Bobby's passing in my latest issue of the Butner Creedmoor News. I too was a member of the class of 1957 at Creedmoor High School. Not sure if Bobby was in attendance for all of his school years but I was. I remember talking to him at our last high school reunion. Best wishes to his family. Phyllis Green Liner"
"Jenny I am so sorry to hear about Bobby. We the class of 1957 were always dear to each other. I was not aware of his passing until last night. Take care I will remember you in my prayers. A friend always."
"We so wanted to be with you Eddie and Jeannie during this time but this virus has us down. We will miss Bobby as he was a good man who was easy to love. Know our prayers and our thoughts are with you and if you need us just call. Bill, Angie, and Becca!!!"
"I worked with Bobby many years ago with the National Guard, we checked out some horses together and I did some racing with him too. We had some good times. He will be remembered...and missed. May he rest in peace. Prayers go out to his friends and family."
