Bobby proudly served his country in the US Navy before becoming a long shoreman working on the Dundalk Marine Terminal in Maryland. When he was not hard at work, Bobby enjoyed fishing, taking car rides, and doing projects around the house. He was very talented with drawing, and solving math problems in his head. For over 12 years, Bobby enjoyed traveling to dog shows when his wife was still showing dogs. They also enjoyed driving through Amish country and going to Chesapeake City just to get out. Bobby was a very caring, generous man with a good heart who loved his children and wife. Even in his weakened condition, the last words he spoke to his wife were, “I Love You”. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
