Bobby was raised in Coushatta and graduated from Martin High School.  After graduation, he proudly served his country in the US Air Force.  He served overseas in Thailand, of which he learned about different. cultures.  Later in life, he became a mechanic on heavy equipment.  When not working he loved being in the outdoors.  He could be found either hunting, fishing, riding his four-wheeler, or camping.  During the fall, he loved driving the hay ride through the Dixie Corn Maze.  He could be heard a long distance away yelling “Hay Ride”.  After retirement, he started using his talents and time to create wooden and leather keepsakes for his family. These precious items will be kept and passed down for many generations.

Bobby loved his family dearly, his country, and his friends.  He will be greatly missed.  The family requests that donations be made to Wounded Warrior Project or Veterans’ Association, in lieu of flowers.
