Bobby is survived by his loving family; sister Denise Thierry of St. Louis; sister Gina Thierry Rubright, brother-in-law Ted Rubright, nephew Ross Rubright, of Kirkwood. The family is grateful to have celebrated Bob’s recent 70th birthday together, and will miss him dearly. Bob also leaves behind a loving aunt, cousins, and many friends. He cared deeply about all of them.
Upon graduation from Southwest High School in 1968, Bob attended UMSL. In his 40s, Bob attended St. Dominic Savio Catholic Church in Affton, fulfilling a longtime desire to become confirmed in the Catholic faith.
Bobby loved music, of styles ranging from Broadway to Rock to Billie Eilish (he joked that he must be her oldest fan). He was a master of sports statistics, pop culture and movie trivia, and delighted in sharing his favorite bits of knowledge with others. Among other things Bob enjoyed were participating in his football pool, watching TCM, and his daily morning coffee from White Castle.
Bob was also predeceased by the many dogs he adopted over the years: Lady, Baron, Dandy, Apollo, Dudley, Lucky, and Tramp.
Arrangements by Michel Funeral Home. Service will be announced in Spring of 2021 as well as interment at Memorial Park Cemetery. Donations in Bob’s memory may be made to Muscular Dystrophy Association, American Cancer Society, a dog rescue organization or another charity of your choice.
