Anyone who knew him would tell stories of going by seeing him on his four-wheeler driving in the pasture checking fences or going for breakfast with Mike, his faithful pit bull guardian at his side. The only thing that slowed him down from getting his chores done on the farm was if someone came by and he was able to get “live and in concert” telling stories from the “Book of Bob.”

He was a member of the Switzerland County Tractor Pullers, was President of the Bear Branch Volunteer Fire Department and served as a Board of Director for the Moorefield Community Fire Department. Bobby was a lifelong resident of the Switzerland County community. The only thing he loved more than farming was his family.
