Never really knew Bobby other than exchanging greeting when we’d meet while he was walking his little dog. About two years ago, just before Covid struck, I saw him without his little friend. Joined together now may they both rest in peace.
My thoughts and most sincere sympathies are extended to all family members and friends. Bobby and Anne lived in back of me. Two of the greatest people. Anne had such a great sense of humor. She was truly special. And Bobby was the most unique individual. I would sit in the back yard and listen to his sax playing away. I will certainly miss them both.
I knew your Bobby and Anne for26 years .He was a very nice man and I spent a lot of time with him in the last few months .My family will miss him a lot .You can know Rest In Peace.Sorry too all his family
So sorry for your families loss he was a great neighbor always pleasant and full of joy.
I just saw this now after hearing about JoJO Bennet. I am so so sorry to hear this. I wish I had known you and Annie better but have great memories of you when you were in Toronto and how welcome you made me feel in your home. Rest in power Bobby, you are joining the place where all the greats go and thanks for your music and loving spirit
