Bobby, aka BG, Dad, Daddy, Pa or Grandaddy is survived by the love of his life, Cheryl C. McFadin and daughters, Ann Faddis (Mac Driskill), Laura McFadin, and Tonya Carter (Gil).

In the 3rd grade, Bobby moved to Martinsville from Seaford Delaware with his family when his father was transferred by Dupont. He graduated from Martinsville High School and enlisted in the National Guard in which he was honorably discharged in 1961. Bobby too worked at DuPont as a maintenance supervisor and retired with over 30 years of service. He was also a member of Starling Avenue Baptist Church.
Like his mother, Bobby loved the outdoors and all nature had to offer. B.G. enjoyed tinkering with projects, a competitive game of domino’s, playing games on his I-Pad, weekly board meetings with friends at McDonald’s and splitting a bottle of beer with Squirrel. He enjoyed his family, cracking jokes and making funny faces to the little ones. He was a special person who never met a stranger and was always willing to help those in need.
A grave side service will be held at Roselawn Burial Park Friday January 14, 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers the family has requested that memorial donations be made to the Starling Avenue Baptist Church or the Mountain Valley Hospice, Martinsville.
