Heaven is filled with the sounds of a strumming guitar. God called Bobby home on December 11, 2020. Bobby had a lifelong love of music and has left a legacy with his past students. He began teaching in 1965 and taught 420 students up until this past November. Bobby felt his teaching was an opportunity to not only provide instruction but also pass on life lessons sharing his faith in Christ.
Bobby graduated from Louisiana Tech in 1957 and began his career as a civil engineer with the Louisiana Department of Transportation. He was a devoted Christian and loved his family dearly.
Bobby was preceded in death by his parents, Douglas and Marie Moorehead.
