    Jenny and the Griffey family, I am so sorry to hear about Bobby’s passing. Bobby and I grew up on 32nd street in Lubbock. Bobby and Wayne lived two houses to the west of our house (with their wonderful grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones). ”Jonesey”, his granddad, was always setting up something neat for the neighborhood kids… like the outdoor water fountain he installed using a water hose. Kay and Yankee, with Diane, Tommy, and Terry lived two houses to the east of our house. I remember how small Tommy and Terry were. (They must have moved from our street when the boys were still really little.) All the neighborhood kids played and played our hearts out every day until dark. We had some really good times…. back when things were so simple. After they moved to their house off of Avenue U, Bobby and Angel Ramirez would occasionally come by on their motorcycles to say hi and to catch up! He was a good friend. I’m sorry I lost touch with him and his family for so many years. (I’ve lived in Austin, TX since 1985.) My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. Bobby was a really good friend growing up.

  6. So very sorry for the loss of this sweet man. We will miss seeing him wave at us everyday from across the street and him bringing a Christmas snack tray all these years. Our prayers are with your family. God bless you

  7. I would like to express my condolences to the Griffey a Family. This is Adam (Don) one of Angel Ramirez’ younger brother. Bobby was a very good friend of Angel, and just a nice guy with everyone. While as young people we all played football before school at George Bean Elementay. As Judy Bragg Skeen Tarwater said back in the early days, we played and hangout. We too would all meet at Mrs. Brags home and enjoy all the Tall castle slide, and many other custom equipment in the yard. And during Holloween Mrs. Bragg would have her home setup with haunted house. What great times we had. I myself only knew Bobby and his Grandmother from the home on 37th street, and Yankee. You will be in my daily prayers. Adam Ramirez
