  1. I was so sorry to hear of his passing. Although, it’s been many years since we’ve had any association, I remember Bobby as a wonderful person to be around. While married to his niece, we had great conversations, a really likable individual, a man respected by all. He showed only love for his family. He will be truly missed by myself and whomever had the pleasure of spending time with him. May the family find peace in their hearts, as his journey continues, with Gods speed.

  2. Denise, Stephanie and family. Our deepest sympathy and thoughts are with you in the loss of your Dad. Gloria, Chuck and Chad Wright; and, Johnie Adams.

  3. Bobby was a wonderful friend and he will truly be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  4. I’m a friend of Pam and Glenda. I’m so sorry about Bobby. I have heard Pam speak about him with so much love. I know he will be missed.

  5. Dear Sharon and family, Y’all are all in our thoughts and prayers. We know it’s so hard to lose a loved one, but just know that he is not suffering and is in the arms of our Lord. Wish we could be there, but not able to make the trip. Love and hugs to all.

  6. So sad to hear of Bobby’s passing. My dad who died several years ago at 99 really liked Bobby a lot as did I. I took my Dad to his new place in Jefferson and had a good visit. I’m sorry that I didn’t meet the rest of the immedient family. He really bragged about his motorcycle racing grandson. I always remember what a spiffy dresser Bobby was. Growing up in a Florida beach town we were always so much more casual in our dress. Bobby will definately be missed.

  7. A Perfect Southern Gentleman and beloved Christian brother. Sharon we love you, sending blessing to all the family.

  8. One of my father’s (De Witt Maddox) Best Friends of All-Time. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall in any of their supposed weekend road trips down to A-1A Highway and back in Florida, “Back In The Day”. My Uncle Wendell Maddox’s first remembrance of Bobby, upon learning of Bobby’s passing, was to say, “Whenever there was a death in the community, Bobby Orr was always there visiting the family at the funeral home. Bobby knew how to show respect, IN PERSON, to the family in their time of grief. I’m gonna miss that good old boy.” – Randy “De Witt” Maddox
