Bobby was an accomplished skydiver and pilot, with over 3000 jumps to his credit and 1250 hours of flight time recorded. He was a very well-liked, successful andrespected land man in the Denver area for the past thirty five years. He very much enjoyed handball and the many friends he established through the game. His forthright demeanor complimented his daring and adventurous lifestyle to a T, all this with a personality that you couldn’t help but love. He made no judgments and had little empathy for those that did. He will be missed dearly by all who knew him.
