We have many wonderful memories of the Barker family when we lived in Dumas. Bobby was an outstanding member of the community. He was loved as a great father, husband, grandfather and devoted friend to so many. We will never forget him and his wonderful family.

Bobby was one fine man! I really enjoyed working with him and assisting me on many church events at First Baptist Church. His son, Brad, and my son grew up together and are close friends and work associates to this day. As a side note, Bobby made a really great and intimidating Roman soldier in some our pageants.
