The family moved to Eastern Washington in the early 1960s. Bobby graduated from Grandview High School and attended Yakima Community College.
He married his childhood friend Janie Dybdahl in September 1983 in Yakima. Bobby was dedicated to his family, and took parenting their sons, Nathan Jerome and Robert Marcus, as a full-time occupation.
The many varieties of roses around his home flourished under his care and gave him great joy.

He leaves his wife and sons, his mother-in-law Lucille Dybdahl Kraenzler, sister Patsy Dean of Yakima area, brothers George in California, Les of Mabton, Wash., Robert of Burlington, Wash. and Larry in Texas. His parents and brother James died before him.
