I think we met once, Bob but it's not fair when we loose someone who's family I know well. You were so important to all of them and will always be remembered.

I want to let everyone know that Bobby's memorial service and reception was awesome. Pastor Laurie captured his spirit and our love for him and his specialness. She was a great comfort to me. Many wonderful friends, former neighbors, and family members came together to share their memories and give and find comfort. Thank you everyone, those who came to the memorial, those who wrote on this website, those who sent flowers or posted a note on facebook or sent an email or card, and those who donated to Bobby's little family. You have been great comfort to us all, and help us with this terrible grief. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Bobby and I grew up together. He lived in the smurf colored house next door and as far back as I can remember, Bobby was my friend. Coming to my birthday party naked, digging holes in his yard with Phillip, and staying at my house for so long I swore I had another brother. I remember when I moved to another neighborhood across town. Although we went to SCAPA together, I was worried things wouldn't be the same. No more sneaking to each others houses at night, no more getting rides to and from school together, no more Bobby. But he swore to me we would always be friends no matter what happens, how far we were from each other, even if we didn't talk for years. I will never forget that. My childhood will be forever connected with Bobby's and I wouldn't have it any other way. He will be greatly missed and live on in the memories we shared. I only wish, as everyone does, he had more time with us all.

I had the profound pleasure of knowing Bobby at a very young age; and a very creative age.... At SCAPA, Bobby was always making friends and had the ability to make anyone laugh. He had an infectious personality that lifted every spirit he encountered. I am honored to have known him and send my love, thoughts, and prayers to his family! Bobby was a great friend and an extremely proud father! I know you will be missed! RIP Bobby!

My heart is gone. Without you around the world seems to have grown colder. You were the me without the bad. A perfect example of what kind of man I want to be. So many things I wanted to say, and so many lives left wishing we could see your smile. I know you would have never left, but God had a greater need for you someplace else. We love and miss you just as much as you do us.

Rod, Pete and family I was so sorry to hear of Bobby's passing I only got to know him briefly but, it was lots of laughing and that's the Bobby that I will remember. It's got to be the hardest thing for a parent go thru and you will never forget, my heart goes out to you. To Bobby's wife, so sorry for your loss. Losing your husband so young at this time is so tragic my heart goes out to you and your children. Though the pain will never be gone, it will become a lighter shade of blue. Always remember you have an angel watching over you. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. God Bless

Wonderful soul. I knew Bobby when he was growing up. I remember his constant smile and humorous stories. I reconnected with him on facebook just a few months ago. I was so delighted to see him and his beautiful family. I send love and peace to all the Hatt family.

I was so happy to hear Bobby that you were coming back to Lexington, but not in this way. I can only remember the times as kids we were running in the back yard @ street I still live in today, I will never forget each and every day we shared as friends till you moved on with your life in Florida. I just wish we had another 50 years and I will never forget my fat brother and my bestest friend who was always there for me. I can only say you will be remembered and never forgoten. Your a brother and true friend. Phillip S. Kraft

"Bobby always hated the Fall. He used to tell me when he was just a little boy how he hated the orange and brown colors, that they gave him a "headache." Strange that he should leave this earth in the Fall."
