  9. My condolences for your loss. I believe my family has one of Bobby’s beautiful paintings from many, many years ago. I would like to know how to contact his wife/children so I may return this to them. It is a symbol of my childhood and owned by my father, who passed 10 years ago. Now that it has passed to me I would love to give it to Bobby’s family so that they may have it as an heirloom. Please email me and I can send photos to verify. It is a gorgeous autumn landscape. Bobby was very good with color and texture.
