A native of Fountain Farm, Missouri, he was the son of the late Samuel and Genieve Skaggs.
He leaves behind his loving daughters, Cyndie (Charlie) Young and Kandi Fletcher, his grandchildren, Kaitlyn (Brandon) Bauer, Christa (Justin) Boswell, Jamie (Will) Tobias, and Dave "DJ" (Becky) Radford and his great granddaughters, Ava, Mattie and Mila Tobias. He is survived by his siblings, Kenny and Dennis Skaggs and Sue Aubuchon and many nieces and nephews.

Bobby was employed by Publix for many years where he maintained small machines.
