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.

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.
