    Joann my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Bobby was a Hero to me growing up next door. Bobby was always the cool guy with the Chevelle. I use to run out the front door almost every school morning to watch him spin out the driveway and shoot down the road. I remember when he took me deer hunting and I missed. He cut the shirt tail off my brand new shirt... I asked him not to do it but Bobby's answer was always to the point. "You missed, I have to do it, its the rule" From that point on I only wore old shirts when we were hunting. You will be missed sir!!

    One of the best friends and cousins a man could ask for. Our time we spent together thru the years will never beforgotten. I know for sure Bobby is rejoicing with his uncle Bailey in Heaven whom he loved and dad loved him. I wouldn't take a million dollars for all our laughs, discussions, trips we took and all our time spent hunting and fishing... My heart has a hole that will never be filled. I love you brother!!!! We will save one peice of coconut cake this Christmas just for you.. All of family and Joann we feel your pain and may Christ give you all the strength to endure each day. Love you all, Don and Jan Corbin

    Bobby has been a dear friend since High School days at Culpeper County High School. He was in our wedding over 55 years ago. We cherished his and Joann's visits when they came back to Culpeper to visit family! Love and prayers to Joann and family!
