  1. We had the privilege to know Bobby through Atlanta Fire soccer and will always remember him as the floppy haired blond kid that played with the tenacity of a lion, had the heart of a champion, was a trusted teammate and a friend to all who knew him. It is with unspeakable grief that we say goodbye to this young man and express our condolences to Shelley, Chris, Craig and family.

  2. Bobby worked with my husband Johnny and thru that he became a personal friend of ours. He loved my children and my children loved him he was like a ray of sunshine everytime he was around. I feel so blessed to have known him and I got to see him before this horrific event. We love you “Bobby” and our prayers are with you now

  3. As Bobby and Blake grew up together, and as Blake’s aunt, I remember Bobby at many family events, or just everyday hanging out at Bryan’s house. He will always be cherished.

  4. Always on our minds; forever in our hearts. May God be with you in the dark days ahead. Thoughts and many prayers to the family.
