Memories Timeline


  1. So sorry about my brother passing away~ I want to say Thank You from my family to Terri Holt ,his Niece for the wonderful job she did looking out for him at the nursing home~~We all appreciate it~~

  2. I have so many fond memories of Uncle Bobby and Aunt Vivian. They were the sweetest kindness most fun aunt and uncle. The only time I have ever been fishing was with him and we caught turtles and threw them back, and I remember riding with him on his paper route. Their Sunday afternoon surprise visits would make my day! He was a special person with a huge heart and he will be missed. Love you Uncle Bobby! Til we meet again 🙂

  3. Bobby was a good man he was a good-hearted man every time I saw him it was a joy to talk to him he’s just sitting still produce right up here at the circle in Pinehurst and I know you had a accident years and years ago which disabled him but he was the kind of person that would not accept disability so he suffered with pain throughout his whole life because of that and given what’s the sweetest woman his wife she always had snack cakes in her house any time we went there rest in peace Bobby I know you live in now.

  4. My sympathy is extended to each of you in the passing of your dear brother, Bobby.
    Bobby was a true gentleman.
    He and I were classmates.
    Rest In Peace.

  5. Such an unexpected death, during this Covid-19! Family or friends just can’t monitor the status of loved ones, while not being allowed to visit nursing homes. That has been a real tragedy in this situation!

    There are plenty of great memories of Bobby! While he wasn’t my dad, he acted as such, during the summers I’d spend with him and my aunt Vivian.

    Bobby was quite a character at times, and my sister Toni and I had a lot of fun going with him on his different routes. Whether we were delivering wood, going back and forth to South Carolina to pick up produce, selling produce at different farmers markets, or grocery stores, it was usually a good time. He was always kind and we minded him quite well. We rode in his old pickup with no a/c for the summer heat, and he had a habit of wiping his sweaty head and face on is handkerchief and would then hang it on his open hand and let it dry in the breeze as we rode to our next stop.

    He taught us a lot about life, especially at the breakfast or dinner table, and you could always count on him to be there. He was patient & kind, and did as much as he could for my Aunt.

    When my aunt died, Bobby tried to move forward, but it was never quite the same for him. Now… Bobby can Rest In Peace! I’ll miss you!!!

  6. While it had been a while since we were able to see Uncle Bobby, we still have many happy memories of him. From long ago Sunday lunches at Grandma’s house (his mother’s) to just stopping by the traffic circle to say hi, where he was always ready with a bag of peaches, tomatoes, or cucumbers. He always had a smile for anybody who stopped by. Your family will miss you greatly. Rest in peace Uncle Bobby!

  7. Hello to my dear Crabtree first cousins. Bobby was a wonderful man…any time I was home from the position as an Army officer wife I tried to stop by to see Bobby.
    I was in Columbia when he had that terrible truck accident. I went to see him often. He will be missed by many .
    All my love to each and every one of you.
