Bobby loved life and lived it to the fullest. He was happiest on the golf course, eating a fabulous meal with a good glass of wine, and being with his children and Grands. I will miss our monthly dinners and talks of Auburn Football, the state of the country, or how the family is doing.
Bobby lived a great life, full of love.
I miss you and love you my friend.
