    So sorry to hear of Bobby’s passing. He was a very good friend and co-worker in the Tn Air National Guard. We used to ride to work together and shared many good times with each other. Bobby will certainly be missed. May the Good Lord bless and comfort each of the family and friends.

    Mr Halliburton was a very special man. He always had a smile and a friendly word to share. When our youngest daughter was diagnosed with cancer, he would stop by and check on her and many times he left A secret donation of money behind when he left. He even cut our yard and helped with a tree while we were away for her treatment. He would honk everytime he passed our house. He was def a special man and one of a kind! He will be missed.

    Bobby and I go back to the first day he joined the TN Air Guard. He has been a comrade in arms and most importantly a friend for many years. We shared war stories during our friendship and somehow, as we got older, the war stories got better over time. Bobby not only will you be missed by many friends, you will be greatly missed by a host of family members. May you fly with God’s angels and be there to welcome all of us home.

    Bobby was a good friend in the many years we served together in the Air Guard. We went on many deployments and summer camps together. He was always ready to do his duty. He could be funny as well as being serious at many times. I am pleased to call him friend. My prayers are with the family members. May God give you comfort and peace during this time of loss.

    Closest I had to a father figure, from the age of 2. My mother’s marriage to him may have ended, but I still keep the last name and always had respect for him as an honorable person even in the face of any personal issues we might have had. Sympathies to the whole family.

    Dear Penny, Kim, Kenneth, Billy and families,

    My mother (your granddaddy’s sister) moved to Indiana when she married my father. When I was young I spent summers with my southern family and when I married I brought my three children. When your dad joined the military I lost touch with him and never met you his children. We reconnected by phone in 2008 and I was able to visit with him at our cousin Marilyn’s home when I came to Nashville. We kept in touch often and I dearly loved his kind heart. I will miss him. Please except my deepest and most heartfelt sympathy on your great loss.

    I am sorry the distance prevents me from being with you at this sad time. My daughter Erin is sending this message because I am not on social media. She also expresses her sympathy.

    Cousin

    I have known Bobby since 1974. I worked with him full time with the Tn. Air Guard and also he had been my Supervisor at times. My wife had 2 kidney transplants while I was in the Guard. Bobby was always asking me how she was doing and wishing her good health. I saw him a couple of years ago in Springfield. We shared some of the past, and he had good words about how much he enjoyed working with me. I am proud to have known such a fine and kind man in my lifetime. Our memories of Bobby will never go away.
