Bob is survived by his wife Merle, his two children Karee Kimbro and Cameron Cobb, his grandchildren Ryan Kimbro and Kellee Kimbro, and cousins Sam Torn, Susan Torn Young, Margie Torn Patrick, and Pat Torn Alexander.

Bob and Merle have shared such a happy life together in their beautiful home (designed by Merle) in the countryside of rural Brenham.
