Bobby was born on January 8 th 1949 to Oscar Thomas Crouch and Mary Bernice Anderson Crouch Benson in Brownwood Texas. He grew up in the town of Brownwood with 7 brothers and 1 sister. He quickly ventured out on his own at the age of 14 to take on Ft. Worth with his cousin and to start working. He quickly learned landscaping and grain harvesting, from Ft. Worth to Odessa. After coming back to Brownwood, Bobby spent his young adult years wreaking havoc throughout the town and acrossthe states on motorcycles with his wild friends and cousins. He had a love for motorcycles, music, and family. He spent over 40 years working various jobs as a backhoe operator at pump stations. In 1992 Bobby had his first heart attack, reluctantly retiring him and keeping him home, which never stopped him. Bobby spent a large amount of time playing rhythm, in a local band called Country Gold on Fridayand Saturday nights. He spent his time playing music with his family, working on cars and motorcycles and watching westerns from the comfort of his living room. His favorite past time was going down to the local café to drink a cup of coffee and chatting with friends, or whooping up on everyone in a game of dominos. His children and grandchildren were the lights of his life. He was charismatic and as witty as they come. Bobby loved to pick on everyone about everything, and his laughter was just as infectious as you could believe, ask any cousin. Bobby was married to his beautiful wife Debbie for 39 years. They shared a home in Waco which they moved to in 2004, where they spent the last 15 years before moving back to Brownwood to be closer to his children.
