He was born on August 6, 1948 to the late Robert and Jane (Young) Dynes and grew up in Ansonia, Ohio where he graduated from Ansonia High School in 1967.
Bobby was known for his strong presence, passion for life, booming voice, and ornery grin. He was a hardworking tool and die machinist by trade for over 40 years and a former member of the Greenville Fraternal Order of Eagles and Loyal Order of Moose. Bobby was an avid NASCAR and Jeff Gordon fan and also enjoyed mushroom hunting, going boating and fishing on Lake Erie, taking his family on vacations to Daytona Beach, FL and Gatlinburg, TN and spending time with his family to create lasting memories and leave a legacy.
Devoted husband and loving second dad to his wife and daughters of over 43 years, Laura Schaefer (Pat Drees) of Fort Loramie, OH and Lysa (Rihm) Morris and to her husband, his son-in-law, John Morris of Hilliard, OH.
Proud Pappy to his grandchildren, the late Kayla Schaefer, Kody (Lydia) Schaefer of Piqua, OH, Evan Singleman of Greenville, OH, Toni Morris and Kaysi Morris of Hilliard, OH and his great-grandchildren, Hayli Boner and Carson Boner of Greenville, OH.
