Bobby was born in Keyser and raised in Romney where he attended Romney Junior High. He lived a simple life and worked at various jobs in and around Romney. Many will remember Bobby walking the streets of Romney and Hampshire County. Bobby had a kind heart and would do most anything for anybody. And if someone would pick him up and bring him home he was happy to do whatever job was waiting. He never missed a day of visiting his father at the nursing home and anyone who knew him knows he had a friendly disposition. Bobby had a talent for noticing details and enjoyed cooking, jigsaw puzzles and his daily walks.
Bobby’s ashes will be buried on his mother’s grave on Friday, September 28, 2018 at 11AM at Branch Mountain Cemetery in Three Churches, WV. All are welcome to attend.
