They were happily married for 28 years. Bobby was a member of the Immanuel Lutheran Church in La Vernia. He was very active with the La Vernia Livestock Show and a member of the San Antonio Livestock Exposition since 1990. At the time of his passing, he was serving as a La Vernia city councilman, as he had for a number of years.

Bobby was preceded in death by his parents; mother-in-law Irene Pawlik; and brother-in-law Alvin Volkmann.
