Born in Aiken, SC, Bobby was the son of Doris Mundy Yon and the late Herbert Edward Yon. Bobby was a member of the First Baptist Church of Williston, Hope Masonic Lodge # 126 and the El Bab Shrine Club in Barnwell, SC. He retired from Savannah River Site after 37 ½ years; he retired as an E & I Mechanic. Bobby was a family man who adored his family, especially his children and grandchildren. He was always available and would do anything for them; he was a giving and loving husband, father and grandfather. He took pride in taking his grandson, Kade fishing and watching him play sports and he loved to watch Ansley play. Bobby was truly a special man who forged bonds with his golfing buddies, his co-workers and fishing buddies. Regardless, how far that he and Bonnie traveled, Bobby would always see someone that he knew.
