Bobby Joe loved many things in life, but his family came first. He loved to go riding in the country in the evening, and when we asked where he was going, he would say puddle jumping, and he would visit his friends Bobby Ray and Pam and drink beer and just sit and visit. He would always call his "errands" rat killing. So he was either rat killing or puddle jumping. He loved eating potatoes, potatoes, potatoes, gravy, gravy, gravy and meat, meat, meat. Meat, potatoes, and gravy was all a person needed according to him. He hated the Dallas Cowboys because Sandy liked them. He always said he loved the Texas Longhorns, but his money was with Oklahoma! GO O.U.!
He sold a '69 Plymouth Satellite to Misfits Garage and made National Tv. He even called his great-grandson Peyton "Gas Monkey" for a nickname. He loved all of his grandchildren, they made his day when they came to visit.
Rest in Peace Bobby Joe.
