As his Niece Heather says of her uncle:

Today we lost my Uncle Bobby.��� He was 1 of 8 siblings. He was wild, funny, and loved us so much. He was BRAVE! He was a Soldier in the Vietnam War by 18 years old. He was a Veteran who fought through horrible times for our country.... and he fought for his life until the very end. ❤️ You are at peace Uncle Bobby, and although we will miss you terribly... we will see you again.❤️ Watch over us and keep us safe.... as you did before.

As his Niece Tiffany says of her uncle:

We lost a wonderful man, My Uncle Bobby����..he was a Vietnam Veteran and his sacrifices were more than we could ever imagine. He was a wonderful person, always laughing and joking. I am so proud to have called him my Uncle and I pray he is free from the past now and soaring with the angels. We will love you always Uncle Bobby, thank you for your service and sacrifices. RIP �����������
