I had the pleasure of working with Bobby Kay at the RRD plant in Greeley and loved hearing his hunting stories and about his life in Kentucky. Although in many ways we came from two different worlds he always treated me with respect and I called him my friend. Bob had a zest for life and his enthusiasm for fun was infectious. My thoughts are with all his friends and family. Bob was one of a kind.

Bobby was a friend of mine when we all went to the Mormon church at Old Mount Hermon. a group of us went to a lot of dances and we played a lot of basketball on an old dirt court. They were good times spent with good friends.I am proud to have called Bobby my friend. Joe

Bobby and I had many fun times growing up together. He was a true friend that would always be there to help you. I enjoyed very much being around him with his jovial personality. Bobby was a very good kid growing up and I have heard nothing that has changed my view of him, as he became a man. Bobby may you rest in peace my friend of my youth. God Bless all his family and I am so sorry for your loss . Larry S. Strode

I met Bobby at Greeley, Colo. as I was a supplier to him in the Printing business. He finally convinced me to hunt w/him in Wyoming and the rest is history. He was a great friend and we had many memorable hunts and visits. Pappy and Grammy were the best and Marie and Joe have made our hunts a special event we look forward too each and every year. Bobby put this all together and was a special person that we never will forget. My best to his family. Respectfully, Larry Cabaniss
