I had the pleasure of knowing Bobby since I was a small child and working with him for several years. He was always a great man with integrity and honesty to spare. He once told me to find a good woman who could also be my best friend when I was dating. I found her not long after Bobby gave me that sage advice. We will be celebrating our 44th anniversary next month. My sincere condolences to his family. RIP Bobby….you will be missed.

I had the pleasure of working with Bobby at Piggly Wiggly many years ago. I was a young lady at that time but I had so much respect for Bobby, he was always good to me. So sorry for your loss , there are few like Bobby left in this world. Prayers.
