No one could do the Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash & Elvis better than Bob. Thanks for all the hilarious stories about the Deavey clan. Wish we could have had more time. RIP.

I was happy that my children got to meet you over Christmas dinner last year. They love the stories of the family that your shared. The humor and singing made for one of our best Christmas to date. We didn’t know that our family reunion would be so short. You have left so many good memories in the hearts of those that loved you.
Our condolences to Emily, Kate, Cathy and family.

Haven't seen Bobby in ages but I do remember that he was a good, funny person that did the best Elvis Presley that ever heard. He even had the body moves down.
Bobby always put a smile on my face.
