Bobby was born August 11, 1938 in Staff, Texas to James and Nellie Griffin. Carolyn was born January 29, 1941 in El Dorado, Arkansas to Roy and Susie Farmer. Bobby served in the United States Army, serving tours at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, and in Germany. Upon completing his Army service, Bobby worked as an electrician during the construction of the Glen Rose Nuclear facility, and then spent many years as a machinist at RE Dye manufacturing in Breckenridge, Texas.

Carolyn was a mother, homemaker, and part time seamstress for many years in Breckenridge while their daughter Donna Kay attended school. In their final years, Bobby and Carolyn spent time working on their small ranch south of Eastland. Bobby enjoyed using his tractor to mow and plow, while Carolyn spent time fishing under the shade trees at the stock tank. Bobby remained an avid sportsman through his final days, enjoying hunting deer, turkey, and coyotes at the ranch. They both enjoyed gardening and making things grow, while building an oasis of peace under the oak trees for family to enjoy. Bobby is survived by his sister Eva Southerland, of Eastland, Texas, and brother Gaylon and sister-in-law Lori of Oxley, Arkansas. Bobby is preceded in death by his older brothers, Morris, Elmer, and Eudell. Carolyn is survived by her brother Lynn Roy Farmer of Breckenridge, Texas.
