Bobby passed away on Friday, May 20, 2016, as a result of a work related injury. He was born on November 18, 1960, in Shreveport, LA, where he attended neighborhood schools and graduated from C.E. Byrd High School. Following graduation, Bobby studied to be an electrician at IBEW in Fort Worth, Texas, where he graduated with a journeyman’s degree in 1987.
Bobby is survived by his loving wife of 22 years, Bonnie Hughes, and their three beautiful daughters, Jordan Hughes, Rachel Hughes, and Grace Hughes. He is also survived by his sister, Betty Hughes Gunter and husband, Richard; brother, Tony Williams “Bill” Hughes, III and wife, Brigette; along with many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, a great-niece and great-nephew; as well as a host of other family members and close friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Tony Williams “TW” Hughes, II and Annie Orton Hughes.
Bobby will always be remembered as a man with an extreme sense of wit and humor combined with a large dose of sarcasm. He enjoyed spending quality time with his loved ones as much as possible. Most of his free time was devoted to his family, especially when it came to each of the girls’ sports and school activities. He also loved spending time at the lake with all his girls and their friends, boating skiing and tubing. Playing golf was another one of his favorite pastimes. In short, Bobby was a simple man, yet truly profound in the way he loved his wife, three girls, family, and friends.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made to Grace Community United Methodist Church, First United Methodist Church, or a charity of your choice.
Pallbearers will be John Phillips, Phil Phillips, George Bush, Ted Payne, Barry Hammond and Raymond Hartso.
