He graduated from Collins High School in 1964. Bobby married his high school sweetheart, Gail Funderburk, on September 10, 1965.

While in military service he received the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, 1 O/S Bar, Marksman (.45 pistol), Marksman (Rifle M-14).

The last move with the telephone company was to Odum, Georgia where they lived for 27 years. He retired in 2003 from Windstream Telephone Company and in 2004 Bobby and Gail moved back to Tattnall County to their family farm outside of Cobbtown, Georgia. Shortly after retirement, Bobby began a second career with the Georgia Department of Transportation in Reidsville. He worked 11 years as a faithful employee for GADOT, he retired in 2012 due to health reasons. Bobby was valued and loved in both careers amongst his co-workers for his tireless work ethic, dedication to the employer and customer, unique since of humor, and quick wit. Bobby was a devoted husband and father. He was a simple man that did not place value in what he drove or lived in.
