I’m so sorry to hear about Bobby. He and myself graduated together Southampton High School Class of 1975. He was always well dressed and well respected. He was a friend to everyone always smiling and glad to carry on conversation. Bobby lived in Sedley near my grandparents and 3 Hundley Uncles. He worked with Uncle Jack. My deepest sympathy to all his family as they celebrate the life of Bobby Caulder. He touched many.

So saddened to hear of Bobby passing away. We were SHS ’75 classmates. When I told Pam I’d lost another classmate, she couldn’t believe it. He was fun to be around at school. Deepest condolences to the family in this time of need. May God be with you all in the days ahead. Godspeed, Bobby.
