Bobby was a devoted husband and adored his wife, Aletha Yancey Kelley. He loved his children, especially his grand children. He supported extracurricular activities and always tried to bring joy and a smile to those around him. He enjoyed sports, especially Georgia bulldogs, (Go dawgs!), cars, fishing, camping, and vacations to the beach & mountains. He held a special place in his heart for his animals.
