Here lies Bobby Dean,
A sandblasting & painting machine,
Hard work was his motto since he was a young man,
He fought till the end but was delt a tough hand,
He loved his wife Nelda and family but,
loved to be in the woods hunting a deer during rut,
A proud man with a large loving family around,
He was always on the go with no lazy bone to be found,
He survived a sunk boat and bulldozer track,
Gave cancer a long run,
We all know that's a fact,
Bobby was a simple man who cherished his wife & kids,
But always cared for others even those who weren't his,
He had friends far and wide,
Some old and some new but you always could count on him to be true,
Before he lost his battle to his health issues,
He had the staff at the hospital laughing in stitches,
That's him, who he was,
One of a kind,
He will be missed,
But cry not for today is about tall tales,
Of Bobby the war hero & survivor of large ocean swells,
What a man, what a Father, brother and friend,
He had that funny laugh and chuckle up till the end,
How lucky we are to have known this man among men,
He gave it his all up to the very end,
Goodbye for now Bobby,
time to venture on to see Charlie, Sharon & Wanda,
Don't you know they will be so happy to once again see their Father.
