Chrisanne remembers: Everyday, growing up, my Dad would come home from work at 5:25. The table would be set and dinner would be prepared. My Mom would always greet him at the door with a kiss and tell him "everything's ready." When I received a call that my Dad had passed away, I looked down at my watch - 5:25. I know my Mom was greeting him at Heaven's door with a kiss and telling him everything's ready."
Bobby was preceded in death by his parents; wife, June Watts; and brother, Dale Watts.
He is survived by his daughters, Renee Mexia and Chrisanne Brightwell and husband, Larry, all of Cleburne, Texas; grandchildren, Zach Brightwell and wife, Sarah, and Reagan Priester and husband, Andrew; and great grandchildren, Ember Brightwell, Stella Brightwell, and Tucker Priester.
We would like to thank all the care givers at Christian Care Community Memory Care who treated us like family.
