Bobby also proudly served his country in the United States Airforce. Bobby’s career centered around his great love for fishing. He owned a tackle store in San Antonio, was a professional bass fisherman with Team Daiwa, and was a factory representative to Bass Pro Shops for 20 years for many well-known brands. One of his favorite memories was of time spent teaching children to fish. In addition to fishing, Bobby found great joy in rebuilding classic cars, collecting Coca Cola memorabilia, singing along to hits from the 50s and 60s, and playing slots at the casino. Bobby loved to make people laugh and had a generous heart. If you needed it and he had it, it was yours.
