    Default Bobby Keller - We Lost A Good One Today

    I regret to inform everyone who knew him that Bobby Keller died this morning from cancer. I never would have met Bobby if it had not been for NCAngler and the Red X Angler Meet & Greets. In January of 2014 I was contacted by Bobby who saw that I was another Wilkesboro guy on NCAngler and he was interested in attending the Red X hot hole fishing event. I picked him up and we drove down together became fast friends and fishing partners. We each now had someone local to fish with that were both addicted to fishing. We had some great times over the next 2.5 years fishing Kerr Scott, the Yadkin River and the New River River. It wasn't long after meeting Bobby that I met Katrina who loved fishing too. They were always at the Red X Meet and Greets and supplied most of the fish nuggets a few years back at the Kerr Scott M & G. They went to the Bay River Meet & Greet when it rained so hard I think the water was flowing through their tent. Its tough reflecting on the times we had together without tearing up. He was a good man. Please keep Katrina in your prayers.

    So sad to hear this. I had no idea he was even sick. I remember he and Katrina tearing up the trout on one particularly nasty rainy and windy day at Bay river, they were both soaked to the bone and wind blown so much they had red cheeks, but they were both smiling ear to ear. My prayers go out to Katrina and their families, he will be missed.

    Great tribute Raymond. It sounds like you had a similar experience to mine with Mike Becker. We met thru this website and became great friends and fishing buddies. It is still hard to believe he is gone. I will be praying for Bobby's family. I am grateful that you guys met and had such great times together.

    Thanks for starting this one Ray, you found some great pictures of Bobby, and I am fortunate enough to say that I was around when most of them were being taken. Bobby was a true giant of a man, as warm and friendly as any I have ever known. I will think of him fondly and often.

    Good guy... sorry to hear the news, although I am afraid many of us feared this happening soon.

    I have some pics on my work PC, will add them here.

    I found this pic of Bobby and Katrina at the small meet that Len put on. I remember they had a couple good stringers full of crappie but I cant find that picture.
