    I thought the world of Mr. Bobby. He had a lot of “Sons” and I was proud to be one of them. As a technician he worked to teach as much as repair. A true inspiration to those in my field.

    I had the pleasure of knowing Mr woolard for 22years. I lived across the street from Mr Woolard. He was great man and a great neighbor. Always willing to talk and very concerned about people. He was a hard worker when it came to doing transmission work. I will truly miss him. I will keep the entire family in my prayers. I pray that Mrs woolard will be ok and surrounded by family. I am truly sorry for your lose.
