Bobby enjoyed spending time at the Lake – fishing, boating and relaxing. He was a music fan; listening to soft rock, country and gospel music. Bobby also spent many nights watching Cardinal baseball. Bobby Blue will be remembered as a family man. He always made it a priority to keep up with everyone, regardless of where they lived.
