  3. I only knew Bobby for a short time but he made a lasting impact on my life. We met 3 or 4 years ago at the Senior Citizen’s Center and became dear friends. He will be missed very much. Please continue praying for his family and the many lives he touched with God’s love.

  4. Donna Kay and I would talk about what a good and decent man that her dad was in the time leading up to Donna leaving us. You could tell Bobby’s love for all his children was the real deal. Anyone that ever met Bobby was always a better person for it. There is a hole and I can’t think of anyone that’s good enough to fill it. God bless…….

  5. So extremely sorry for the loss of your dear daddy/man of the house, etc. He was one of a kind and will be sorely missed. Blessings of God to all of the family ❤️

  6. I have many fun memories of Mr Minter. Matt brought him deer hunting at our place not that many years ago. Great guy. Prayers for Matt, Roger & family.

  7. So sorry to hear about your loss. Many fond memories.

  8. A super nice man and family. Gone too soon, praying for the family.

  9. Roger, my prayers are with you. Your dad was the sweetest man ever! I remember as a kid, we would visit his gas station and I would place my finger on the windshield and he would act like it was a hard spot to remove. I did this every time, and each time, he took a moment to make me laugh, never tiring of the game. There aren’t many men left like him. Sweet and gentle.
