  • My prayers are with you all. I will really miss seeing Bobby Joe this year at the reunion. He fought a courageous fight, but is now with our family who have gone before.

  • Aleta and Family, Don and Family:

    Larry and I send our condolences to you in your loss.

  • Bobby was not only the local shop owner he was a friend. Fair marksman and great source of information on pretty much anything that went bang. The shooting sports people of central ohio have already felt the loss. We lost our local expert, source of exotic ammo, and stories. I think I’ll miss the stories most. He was never short with offering an opinion. You were allowed to disagree with him (if you didn’t mind being wrong) but he would certainly share his wisdom. Go well knowing that you must sort out the good ranges for us in preparation for our arrivial. I’d like the chance to shoot on your squad again. You will be missed by many for a long time. Condolences to the family

  • We have lost a Great American, The Memories, The Great Stories to Me they are Piceless and will Forever be cherished. In the late 80’s I still lived in the area and was a frequent visitor, and in most cases a customer of BJ’s he was full of knowledge. I am very saddened to hear of his passing. May God Bless your Family in your time of Sorrow.
