To the Highfield family, so sorry for your loss. I have early memories of your family back in the 70's when they were neighbors in West Grove with my brother Paul, Jr and Kathe. They have now passed as well. Bobby had serviced my vehicles for about 20 years or more and always dedicated himself to great customer service and could fix anything. Blessings to his wife, children, grandchildren and siblings. Rest easy Bobby, you'll be missed.

Sister,  I am so sorry for Bobby's passing.  I remember so many things when I think of him and they all make me laugh.   I remember him coming to rescue us when our camper broke, I remember him fixing my flat tire when it blew out on 472. I remember him listening for those funny noises I always heard my car make.   The party we had that Taylor drenched him with water balloons and our infamous pork and sauerkraut meal.  And we can never forget him playing his guitar and you and I singing and dancing that night in the hospital with him.  That still cracks me up.  So many things........Dave and I love you Sis, We love you Josh and we love you Kalyn.   God bless us all.
