In Memory

Robert W. Tiffner

Bobby died on June 13, 1992, while playing in a local softball tournament. He collapsed on the field, and although paramedics were on scene, they were not able to revive him. He was only 22 years old. Bobby was known for his bright smile, great personality, and athletic abilities. He loved life and lived every moment to the fullest. He did not know a stranger. Bobby is survived by his mother and siblings. His mother, Marsha, and his sister, Kim, attended our 10-year reunion in his memory. Bobby is buried at Greenlawn Cemetery. Directions to his grave are as follows: From 70 E, take the S. Charleston/Clark County Fairgrounds Exit (Exit 59). Turn right onto 41. Go about 7 1/2 miles. The cemetery is on your left directly across from the South Charleston sign. Go straight down the main road and go around the Houston monument. Take a right at Section 9 (there's a tree on each corner). Bobby's grave is about halfway down that road on your left. You can see his headstone from the road.

Ahhh ... what's not to love about Bobby! He was my first crush in the 8th grade ... but Beth Bogumill stole his heart that year! I was devastated! Even so, Bobby and I established a great friendship from then on.

Bobby's death was a shock to me -- and probably everybody else. He was the picture of health. It really made me realize that life is fragile.

I will always think that Bob had a hand in David's and my "togetherness", as we got reacquainted at his funeral, David got my number, and the rest is history.
Thanks, Bob!

I'll never forget your great smile, fantastic personality, and your love of life. RIP
