Bobby was always super kind to me. I had the pleasure of working alongside him for 10 years and I’ll always cherish those memories of him. To Toby, Marzee, Scott and the rest of the family, you guys are in our prayers. Our hearts go out to you.

Mr. Bobby drove a bus for special needs kids for years in FP, and he was so kind and patient to these kids. He also provided snow cones for our WAES Field Day for many years. I had the honor of teaching one of his grandsons, Austin. Mr. Bobby will be missed so much.

I crossed paths with Bobby back in my late teens/early 20's which was a LONG time ago. I was trying to learn to manage people but mostly the people managed me. Bobby was always willing to listen and with that twinkle in his eye , offer good advice. I've always been thankful for the time he took to help. Condolences to all who mourn his passing.

So sorry we lost one of the best. Bobby was a great man, a friend to all, and served on every community organisation. He worked hours helping to make lives better for Fort Payne, and the schools. Bobby and I grew up together on Godfrey Avenue. And many years later we became best friends and co-workers. Both working 35 for the Prewett Organisation. Toby, Scott and Marzee, your Dad was a Dad you can be very proud of. He loved his kids and grandkids so much. So many things I could say, the one thing for sure, I love Bobby like a brother, and I will miss his witty personality, ❤️🙏
