Bobby Burgess, age 62, of Bells, Texas passed away January 23, 2018. He was born June 1, 1955 in Harlingen, Texas to Billy Howard Burgess and Katherine (Mangrum) Burgess.

Bobby loved tinkering with cars and he was fascinated with anything with an engine; lawnmowers, tractors, etc. He had the ability to overhaul any engine and he passed on the love of auto mechanics to his daughter, Dena. He was generous to help other people with their cars, but he loved to give them a hard time. Bobby and his brother, Billy, were fishing buddies. They enjoyed many times deep-sea fishing off the Texas coast. Anyone who knew Bobby, knew he loved collecting his “treasures”.

He is survived by his daughter, Dena Oglesbee and husband Scott of Bells, TX; granddaughters Haley Kinsey, Shiann Oglesbee; grandson Jaiden Oglesbee; and sister Cindy Page and husband John of Bells, Tx.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and brother, Billy H. Burgess Jr.

Memorial service will be 12:00 noon Saturday, February 3, 2018 at his home. 292 Sunny Lane Bells, Texas 75414.
