He was an active member of the Pentecostal church in Granville until his move back to the Bay Shore. He then moved his membership to the Baptist churches on the shore. Upon his passing he was a member of the Baptist church in Parker's Cove. Bobby enjoyed the men's fellowship breakfasts, Wednesday prayer meetings, camping and going to the shore for picnics with family and friends. Winters were always spent playing cards with family and friends and making homemade ice cream. Bobby loved to listen to gospel music and old time country was his favorite.
