Bobby met no stranger, with his infectious smile that would draw people to him, always making you feel included. He was a hard-working man that loved his family above all. His favorite hobbies were golf, dancing to Tejano, fishing, and football. He cheered for his San Francisco 49ers, He disliked the Dallas cowboys giving his wife and son a hard time (saying turn off the lights, the party is over. After a loss), yet he knew every play that the Dallas cowboys made. He enjoyed playing Dominos and took pride beating his children specially his daughter Susan and son Boyce. He enjoyed having a beer and drinking tequila with family and friends. He enjoyed road trips. He was an avid reader and always learning new things. He was full of fascinating stories from past and present. He loved to whistle and sing and will truly be missed.
