    Bobby will be dearly missed by me and his “family” at Business Machines Systems. He was a great person, added humor to every situation, and was a great co-worker and technician. I cannot express in words what he meant to me.

    With the deepest sorrow!

    So sorry to hear of Bobby’s death. He was a fine gentelman, one of the best. I worked with Bobby
    at Business Machines Sys. he was a great technican, very smart, always had an answer for any
    problem. The last time I saw Bobby in Farmington on a visit there, we shared a pizza. We had
    such a great time talking about the “old days” and about his family. I will miss him dearly, I am
    proud to have known him and call him my friend.

    Sharon, you will always be in my prayers. I will never forget the time Bobby sat the airport with my mother and two kids and kept them under his wings even though the flight didn’t make it back to Fort Smith until 5 in the morning. He never complained on bit about it and that’s all I heard from my mother how wonderful he was to do that for her and the girls. It will be a long hard road but you will make it down that road because I have all the faith in the world that the lord will watch over you and the kids. You Sharon know you will always have a friend in me and my family.
    Love you,
    Mary, Thea, Cassidy Jackson and Blythe Roberson

    Bobby, you were my best friend growing up. I have so many fond memories of you, our mutual love of cinnamon toast & Aunt Chris’ Avon powder we poured all over her freshly cleaned floors because we thought it would make the floors slicker for us to slide in our socks on…lol..walking across the train bridge when I was 4 & you were 7 in Jenny Lind with our mom’s to go to Comb’s Grocery Store…..We may have grown up & grown apart but you have always held a special place in my heart..Until I see you again, I love you & save me a place under the shade tree

    Adam Hubbell » 29. Jun, 2012

    I had the opportunity to know Bobby by being one of his clients through BMS. He was always a pleasure to work with & be around. His positive outlook on life was infectious and will be missed. Our thoughts & prayers go to his family and friends. You will be missed Bobby.

    I am so deeply sorry to hear of Bobby’s passing. Bobby was a truly great man. He was always upbeat and had a humorous side that made it nice to be around him. We have done business with Bobby for the last 5 years and he has helped me more times than I can count. A man I am truly happy to have called my friend.

    We were so very saddened to hear of Bobby’s death. We’ve only known him for a short time, but were very fond of him and appreciated the wonderful service he gave his customers. We had a problem one night and called for support. Bobby coached us on the phone and said that he’d stay close to the phone if we needed more help. About 40 minutes later, Bobby walked into our restaurant (driving all the way to Fort Smith from Fayetteville), and the problem was solved. He was a great sport about it — even though he’d wasted the trip. He just wanted to make sure that we were up and running, so it was worth the drive to him. We fed him and sent him home. It was just typical of the way that Bobby took care of his customers. We will miss him very much.

    We are very sorry for your loss. May his memory be a blessing.

    Warmest regards,
    The Staff at River City Deli
