Bobby was a devoted father who loved his children with his whole heart. He enjoyed spending time outdoors, loved to fish and had a wonderfully green thumb. He was also a talented chef and baker; he made the very best homemade spaghetti sauce. Bobby had a lifelong passion for music-especially classic rock. He passed that love down to his children. Bobby and his kids spent so many hours listening to and making music together. His kids were his world. Bobby was one of the kindest, most compassionate souls out there and was always ready to help anyone in need. He was loved so very much by his kids, family, and friends. Bobby will be forever missed and always in our hearts.
