Bobby proudly served in the U.S. Airforce. He was an avid hunter and fisher but most of all, he loved playing guitar and had the honor to play with Ray Price.
Bobby was a jack of all trades, from being a carpenter, mechanic and being a truck driver throughout his life. He was a loving man who was firm to his word which brings his Cherokee Indian roots out.
