Bobby was educated in the public school system of Calvert County, Maryland. Upon graduating from Calvert Senior High School, he served his country in the United States Marine Corp. Bobby was a proud Marine who served during the Vietnam War. Following his military career, Bobby returned home to Calvert County, Maryland and maintained various occupations, such as; Bartending/Club Management, Home Health Care, Carpentry, and Construction.

Bobby enjoyed his life to the fullest. He had several hobbies that he really enjoyed. He loved to “Hand Dance”. If there was a “Hand Dance” contest he would be there! He loved the game of pool. Observers enjoyed seeing him play as he would lead the table. Bobby was an entertainer. As one of the lead singers for the R&B group “The Olympics”, fans would faint and cheer him on as he performed. Bobby the “Uber Driver”, known for his excellent driving abilities, safely transported friends, relatives, and strangers to their desired destinations with a smile. During his younger years, Bobby was a fantastic artist who loved to draw. He drew a life-like portrait of his daughter, “Stacey Lee”, on his bedroom wall that was breathtaking.
