Bobby and Georgia are the owners of Flowers Etc. By Georgia in Houston, Texas. Bobby was an avid hunter who loved hunting more than life. Everyone loved hearing his stories of hunting trips over and over. He loved planning hunting trips with friends and family. He had promised to take his granddaughters hunting this year, but left us too soon. He took his wife and daughters hunting and what stories they could tell.
Bobby called everyone his “Angel” starting with Angel # 1, his loving wife Georgia. Bobby loved Georgia more than anything else in the world. He married her 3 times and recently said he would marry her again and do it all over again. He loved with everything he had and was never afraid to say “I love you”, as Bobby would put it, “I love you more”.
A special “We love you and thank you “to Tracey Pipitone for her love, compassion and guidance during many dark days. She was truly one of Bobby’s Angels. To the many doctors that went above and beyond to give Bobby back his health, words cannot express our gratitude and love.
Those honored to serve as casket bearers during Friday's services are Cliff Underwood, Howard Brewer, Brandon Lakey, Jeff Van Horn, James Van Horn, Robert Alwell, Kevin Wiley, and Kenny Abbs.
Honorary pallbearers are Lance Lakey, Troy Pippin, Landon Lasley, and The Flower Shop Family.
