Bobby grew up in Jonesboro, Louisiana. He attended and graduated from Jackson Parish High School where he was known as a highly competitive star football player, and an overall lover of sports. He loved fishing and hunting with his friend and family members.
Bobby was a hard worker. He worked as a Lumber Jack for his dad’s family lumber hauling company where he set his life’s foundation. In his early 20’s, he relocated to San Diego, CA in search of better opportunities and career advancement. He worked several jobs including the YMCA, Janitorial Services and flipping cars, just to name a few.
He also continued to enjoy sports. He was part of a bowling club and loved playing dominoes spending time with his buddies Again, highly competitive. You see the pattern.
A believer, with strong faith in Jehovah, Bobby was a caring and loving man who would have given anyone the shirt off his back, a home cooked meal, and a place to lay their head. He gave a lot of love, and he will greatly be missed by all who came to know and love him.
