Bobby was a faithful member of River Valley Community Church where he and Doris served as greeters for many years. He graduated from New Washington high school and lived in the area all his life. He owned and operated Davis Implement (“The John Deere Store”) in the New Washington area for 55 years. He will be missed by his sisters-in-law Dixie Marsh, Donna Watkins, his brother-in-law John Watkins, his caregiver, Jennifer Friend, and a host of other friends. He was a quiet, gentle man with little to say and a lot of love in his heart. He loved the Lord and his family and enjoyed many things on earth. One of the joys in his life was to travel in their camper, he and Doris had seen all but 6 of the United States. He loved mowing his property, feeding and watching the birds, working on his computer, caring for his animals, playing cards with family and friends, gardening, southern gospel music, game days with his sisters-in-law, he was an excellent cook and he enjoyed swapping stories with his caretaker, Jennifer Friend.
One of the first things he ever told his wife Doris is, “Life is what you make it.” and he did his best to make sure their life was a good one.
