He married Edna Sarah Howard Edmondson on December 18, 1954 and they were just short of celebrating 68 happily married years together.

In 1982, he opened Bobby’s Auto Center, Inc., and expanded the business by opening a Bumper to Bumper parts store two years later. In 2000, Bobby retired to enjoy spending time with his family, friends and most of all his 3 grandsons. He served for many years in the Quitman Lions’ Club and was a member of Philadelphia Baptist Church. He and Edna loved traveling with friends and took many trips before and after retirement.
