To Bobby's family and friends,
We knew Bobby while we lived in Lawrenceburg from 1995-2006. Bobby would always have a story, joke or just say hello. Always enjoyed talking with him during the Burgoo Festival and many evenings he would stop by the Five Star gas station and see how things were going.
Our family sends condolences to Bobby's family. He will be missed but not forgotten.
Theosa Hoffeld, John Hoffeld and Zak Hoffeld.
