    We have been customers of Bobby’s since 1999. He was a man of his word. This world has lost a great man but heaven has gained an angel. We will truly miss him. May God give you peace and comfort for the long days ahead.

    Bobby was carried away by the angels to a resting place with no pain. That will give you peace and comfort in the sad days ahead. He was much loved. May God give you strength and a deeper faith as you lean on him. God bless you all.

    Bobby was such a good man. I really enjoyed seeing him when he’d come into Engineering on business, and am grateful for the diligence he somehow still managed to show when my grandmother and I had our CHA unit to go out quite recently. It’s hard to find that kind of service anymore, and even harder to find someone who’s a joy to be around, but Bobby was certainly both. My prayers are with your family at this difficult time.

    Bobby and I became friends when we both worked at Amana and continued our friendship after he went into business for himself. He was one of the kindest, sweetest, genuine men I have ever known. My heat went out one Christmas and he was so diligent about getting it fixed. He will be truly missed.

    When I think of Bobby I think jokester! He loved to laugh and make others laugh! He lived life to the fullest and was a wonderful Christian man that was a wonderful role model for all of us. Jennifer, Jared, and Adam you were blessed and my prayers are with you and Teresa to find peace and c omfort in the days ahead. Bobby is resting with Aunt Mae and Uncle Bill!

    One of the first people to welcome us to Petersburg. Bobby was in business but he treated me not as a customer but as a neighbor in need. I love his sense of humor. When Tony was sick, Bobby would make Tony laugh. We shared a love for NASCAR racing apnd stories of Talladega racing. Will miss him. Teresa and Adam and family, your loss is shared as a loss for the community. He will be remembered always.

    Teresa and family, Dennis and I are so sorry for the loss of Bobby. I will never forget him stopping to check on me when I was going through my cancer. Friends and people like Bobby are at times hard to come by. Please know that we both have a tremendous respect for Bobby that will not diminish with time. He was also so good to come and check on our unit if ever we had a problem. We would have great conversations during our visits together. May your grief lessen with time and your memories last a life time, as I know they will. You will be in our prayers in the days, weeks and months to come.

    I remember one time when Bobby came home to Po-Grab as he had been away at service to our country.
    He was sitting on the row behind us and could wiggle his ears so much that it made me laugh and my father almost grabbed me up and took me outside, he was always very strict.
    It almost seems like a reflection of the TV show, “The Walton’s”, when I think of all of us back in that little white church.
    Bobby was a good man and will be sorely missed but all of our lives are much richer having him a part of it.

    Bobby sure will be missed. A very nice man and a pleasure to have met. He has worked for us in the past with the Heating and Cooling system and was always super nice. Prayers are the family. God bless you all.

    Bobby was special. He loved his family, God, the Church, his country and his fellow man..He wrote his obituary with the life he lived every single day. We will miss him, but his pain is over and this is a great blessing! What courage he has shown!

    We love the family and pray for your courage and support from our loving father in heaven during these difficult days.
