    In case I’m not able to make it by the funeral home tomorrow to pay my respects to Bobby I would like to extend my deepest sympathies and prayers to the entire Baugh family I admired Bobby very much and was thankful when he and his family were there for us in our time of need when we lost both of our parents. I’m sure Bobby will be greatly missed by everyone who had the privilege to know him. Once again I would like to extend my deepest sympathies and prayers to the Baugh family sinserely Paul Vogel

    Bobby will be missed so very much by the whole Drum family. He had been a part of our lives since I was a child. I will never forget his smile and easy sense of humor. He and Carole were wonderful together, Gabe and Mandy were blessed with wonderful parents. I know I feel so fortunate to have Bobby as my “swimming teacher” and then my friend. As I said before, all members of my family will miss him very much.
    Peace Be With You

    Carole ….Deeply sorry about Bob passing on. The years have flown by but when he was at Stereo One I really enjoyed working with him. I had a lot of respect for him and enjoyed his “music” and “sports” knowledge. He always had some good jokes / stories and was always fun to be around. Remember Gabe / Maggie being youngsters back then.

    God bless you and your family.
