Friends were extremely important to Bobby and he made a special effort to treat everyone with respect and kindness. As a junior in high school he was a straight A student with the goal of becoming an anesthesiologist one day. He was a creative, artistic and outgoing young man and had a love for the Lord. Bobby lost his life at the age of 16 on September 9, 2012. He was a backseat passenger in a one car roll over crash and died as a result of not wearing his seat belt.
