Bobby's dad was a career navy officer so growing up he moved every two years, they always lived on the pacific or Atlantic coast as well as Hawaii, so his love for the water, sun and fun has been a part of him all of his life hence his email bobbyatthebeach@hotmail.com.

In his early 20's he was a factory rep for TRW corporation for several years, He then became a factory rep for Moog Automotive were his territory was Alabama to Philadelphia he transferred to Ft Lauderdale he then switched companies and was a factory rep of Martin Seynour automotive paint were his territory was south Florida and the Caribbean. In the early 90's bobby started selling cars, he stayed in that profession for the next 23 years working as a salesman, sales manager and finance manager. Then he met Tammy!!!!

Tammy was just starting her business, working with children and families who have mental health issues, over the next several years Bobby was selling cars and doing the finance part for Tammy's business. As the business grew Bobby left the car business and dedicated himself to Tammy's business. Bobby and Tammy were married in Las Vegas in 2008 they have no children just a yacht club dog Coco.

Tammy and Bobby moved to Parrish in 2012 and after 3 years of begging Tammy finally agreed to get a boat, as long as he took lessons and thanks to fellow BYC member Creighton Beddow he learned how to handle both boats. His salesman told him to join the Bradenton Yacht Club so they did both, they purchased a 28 foot Bowrider and promptly joined the BYC. Well there is more to boating than driving around and looking at houses, everyone was cruising and they couldn't so a few months later they traded their 28 for their current 35 foot Regal Sport Yacht and they have been going everywhere they can. Bobby has a true passion for the cruising lifestyle and feels right at home at the yacht club. It is something he has searched for all his life and he has met a lot of wonderful people and looks forward to leading a very good power fleet.
