Bob was an avid OU, Saints and Dodgers fan. He immensely enjoyed spending time outdoors, either fishing or deer hunting with his family. Bob was a prankster, often playing tricks on his family. Bob enjoyed driving his grandsons to their ball games, so much so, that his family would joke that Bob’s truck needed to be painted yellow like a school bus. Dancing was also a favorite pastime of Bob’s; it was something he especially enjoyed at his Mardi Gras krewe’s events in Lafayette.
The family requests that visitation be observed Saturday, May 19, 2012, 6-9 p.m., at Hargrave Funeral Home in Morgan City. Funeral services and burial will follow privately at a later date in Bob’s hometown of Lexington, Okla.
