    Always loved Bobby Ray, I used to tell him he looked like Paul Newman growing up. What a nice man with a great sense of humor. All of us loved him at the clinic and he always brought smiles and laughter everytime he came in Lakeshore Clinic. Much love and prayers to Kristen and family. Bobby was one of a kind!

    I will always have the best memories of Uncle Bobby at the "Clubhouse". He was the life of the party there. He was a dancer and a jokester, always had a great time with all the family and friends. He took care of his loved ones and was always someone you could count on. I'm sending my condolences to Brandy and Kristen and all the family, wished I was there. Sending my love ❤️
