    It is with a very heavy heart that I extend my heartfelt condolences to the family during this time of sorrow. Bobby touched so many lives, and I will cherish the memories I have of him from the good old days in high school. He was one of the funniest people and was able to effortlessly make everyone around him laugh. May the wonderful memories you have of Bobby bring you some light during this dark time and in the coming days. Our prayers and thoughts are with you. Kathy and Kristin

    We cannot believe that Bobby is gone. He loved his family and was so proud Brenda and the girls and he adored those grandkids. Whenever we asked about them, his face always lit up. Always cherish the memories and may they comfort all of you in the days ahead. He will be deeply missed, but never forgotten.

    I’ve known Bobby my entire life I guess – always remembered his smile and what a great person he was, and it was great to see him again when I moved back home. His loss has saddened many of us, and I know his family is completely heartbroken. My sympathies and love to you all. He will be fondly remembered.

  • Cinderella Lyon Posted July 9, 2020 4:27 pm

    I am so sorry for your loss. I remember many times that Bobby’s sense of humor entertained us in school. Talk about your memories often. You will feel his presence.

    My heart goes out to all the family. Usually saw him ride by or run in to him several times a week;. Always asked how the family was. We were friends almost as long as I can remember. Use to go rabbit hunting on Saturdays,took me to the drag strip for the first time,first NASCAR race. (Of course we did not get to hear them say start your engines because Bobby Lynn was hungry),even double dated once. One thing you knew for certain if you were ever around him was that he was proud of and loved his girls as much as any Daddy could. have. So sorry for all the family having to go through this sorrow. Keeping all of you in my prayers.

    It saddens me to hear of Bobby’s passing. What I remember most from high school is his smile and good natured personality. Although I haven’t seen him recently, I always will remember Bobby as a good person and I’m sure a great Dad, husband, and Grandpa as well. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
