    Bobby was a great guy. He loved everyone and would help anyone with any problem. He attended Charlotte Avenue Church Of Christ where he rolled up his sleeves and fixed things that needed to be fixed. He worked on the church bus until it couldn’t be fixed anymore. He was a great mechanic and could fix anything! He gave it all to support those in need. He was such a good man! RIP Bobby. Steve & Kathy Thomas

    I’ve known this gentle man since I was a teenager. As the father of a childhood friend he knew a little bit about everything – told me repetitively “if it wasn’t broke don’t fix it”. Only as an adult did I really understand his faithfulness to his job, friends, family & the Lord. He spoke frequently of his MNPD family – his wife, his children & g’children. He loved fellowship – lived for family get togethers and loved to eat more than anybody I ever knew. I’m really gonna’ miss my “Alleycat” buddy.

    Danny, Natalie, Jennifer and families,
    I’m so sorry to hear about your dad’s passing.. As well as your mom’s (through Danny a few years ago). What I want you all to remember is this: You all grew up in a family absolutely full of love, and love never dies. I felt it every time that I was over there. They loved you all so much. Never, Ever, forget that.
    I’m so sorry that we couldn’t be there but, all of us were there in spirit and prayers. You were all a great family, great neighbors and more than most, great friends. Your parents would be proud of all of you. Please accept our sincere condolences.
    Your Thunderbird family,
    Terry, Butch, Kathy, Peggy and the late Gary S.R. Clouse
    Y’all all mean, and meant, a lot to us.
    Lean on your Faith right now. God will see you through the hard times. Much love from all of us.
    May God Bless You All at such a sad time.
    Always Love,
    Terry
