|Bobby was a great character who also had great character. The best colleague I ever had, and I will miss him greatly. I was looking forward to being friends with Bobby for years to come, but it wasn't meant to be. Thanks so much to his wonderful family members who welcomed me to his beautiful funeral service. Bobby touched many lives in Florida, and he will be missed by many.|
|People that Bobby called "friend" were lucky indeed. He was a caring, compassionate, and generous man who was willing to do anything for a person in need. He will be missed by all who knew him. And, even though he would never believe me, Bobby was a great auditor.|
|Though I've known and worked with Bobby only about three and a half years, he made friendship seem like it had lasted a lifetime. He was an encourager and one of the most genuinely kind people I've ever met. His faith in Jesus Christ was evident in conversations we shared. His Christian life was demonstrated through the compassionate way he cared for those around him. He was always willing to lend a hand. He could also deliver a corny joke with impeccable timing and an infectious laugh. He will be missed. I'll remember him always. My heartfelt condolences to the Briggs family.|
|Bobby Briggs was a great man and will be missed by many. I worked with him on a big project and he was absolutely the most genuine, thoughtful and very intelligent man. He always told me that I was going to go places and do big things and he was always so supportive of me. I will miss him and I know anyone that knew him will miss him as well. Rest easy my dear friend. I will see you again.|
|Bobby was a wonderful man and dear friend. My condolences to all of his family. I will miss him tremendously.|
|Bobby and I were partners delivering Meals on Wheels the last couple of years and would always go to lunch afterwards (with the last time being just a couple of days before his sudden passing). We had a lot of great conversations about pretty much everything, and it was clear to me that he was a genuinely nice person with a great sense of humor who would do anything for anybody (and he did). I will miss him, and I know those who were close to him and depended on him will miss him even more so.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. RIP Bobby, and God bless.
