Bobby was one of the nicest people I have ever known. I worked with Gayle and met Bobby through her. He would come by work and the three of us would be laughing before he left. I always enjoyed seeing him. He and Gayle were fine people. May God comfort their family.

My heart goes out to the Tinsley family. Mr Tinsley was so supportive of me when I became the West Monroe HS baseball coach. He was a true fan and a proud father of Bobby. The Tinsley family were the best fans and such a loving family. I am sure Mr Tinsley will be missed greatly. Rest in peace Mr Tinsley.

I have known Mr Bobby for years. He and his lovely wife were amazing people with outstanding children. A great Christian man. I will miss him.
