Bobby was a kind and gentle person who always had a smile on his face. He set a good example by the way he lived and was a blessing to all who knew him. I have not seen Bobby in over 40 years, but I will always think of him as a person deserving respect and admiration.

I am a classmate of Bobby Peets from Greenville, GHS68. I am so sorry to see he has died. I saw him many years ago downtown Cleveland and he was the same guy as in school. He seemed to always be smiling.

I had the pleasure of working with Bobby since 1986 as one of his supervisors. I always knew when I went to the Health Department that it would be clean, or Bobby would be in the process of cleaning it. He helped me with so many tasks always with enthusiasm. We rode a few miles one day looking for his new voting location. He was determined to do his civic duty, and also loved being with the emergency ops. I will miss him.
