Bobby was a man of many interests. He was an enthusiastic fisherman who found solace by the water, and his love for cars ignited a lifelong fascination with automobiles.

Bobby is survived by his devoted wife, Sandra, and his loving sons, Timothy Ferguson and his fiancée Alysha Pritz, Jordan Brown and his wife Christina, and Timothy Newson Jr. and his wife Lauren. His memory is further carried on by his adoring grandchildren: Ayden, Ne’Honesty, Jay’Elaine, Jaxsen, Elaira, Levi, and Lorenzo. Bobby's expansive family includes sisters Ruth Walker and her husband Ralph, Angel Moody, Bernadette Nunn and her husband Frank, Carmella Perry and her husband George, Elaine Jones, Valerie Jones, and sister-in-law’s Mae Randolph, Sherry Hicks and husband Thaddeus. Among his brothers are Joseph Newson and his wife Oramae, and Steve Jones and his wife Jennifer. Bobby leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, and countless cherished friends.
