Bobby and I were childhood playmates in Hawkinsville where we knew him only as Bobby Hargrove. We played on ball teams together.
My brother Sammy Crenshaw wrote and article on Bobby a few years ago and I learned a lot more about his life. Sam has expressed much enjoyment in their association in the employment they shared.
May each of you have peace and comfort in your memories.

I wanted to express my sympathy to the family. I knew Mr. Bobby all my life as a wonderful and devoted Christian man. We used to go dove hunting together back when I was a child. Me and Mr. Bobby got shot at one afternoon of dove hunting along with several others and if it hadn’t been for Mr. Bobby I might of got shot but luckly none of us got shot. I always admired Mr. Bobby’s faithfulness to Jesus Christ and Midway Baptist Church. I know now that he is at peace and now is having a time that we can only ever imagine. I want you all to know that you are all in my prayers and I care for each of you and if you ever need me feel free to call or come by. May God bless each of you and may you all have peace. In Christ, Clay
I’m very sorry for your loss. Mom just informed me of your Dad’s passing, and I’m unable to make it down in time for the services today. Please contact me if I can be of any assistance.
Your daddy was a wonderful, sweet person and always had a kind, encouraging word. He will be missed in Pulaski County, but Heaven is a better place with him there.
Julia, our thoughts and prayers are forever with you. May God continue to Bless you and your family.
Sorry to hear about your father…………………..Tommy Jones..Ricky Hobbs

In 1983, after retirement from the Air Force, I was hired as a Quality Assurance Specialist at RAFB. Bobby was my initial trainer. He was confident and enjoyed his job. He taught me the QA ropes and I will forever be grateful for his taking me under his wing. He was a kind person who will remain in my memory forever. Thanks Bobby and Godspeed.
I’m so sorry to hear about your daddy. I know you’ll certainly miss him. May God bless you and your family during this tough time.
