Memories & Candles
We are so sorry to hear about Bobby's passing.My brother Donnie as well as my Grandfather had been customers since McDowell location was open.Papaw has passed but don't know where I will take Donnie now since he is legally blind and totally liked and trusted Bobby.I only know of one time that anyone else was allowed to cut his hair when Bobby had his foot surgery And he wanted to wait but we had a family funeral. He will be truly missed by our family as a long time friend as well as a great barber.
