Preceded by their son Bobby James McWhorter, Jr. His parents Ethel Mae and Lawson McWhorter, Sister Dorothy Lovett and brothers Shelton and Harold McWhorter.

His abilities and talents included great physical strength. He could build a room, cook a meal of many courses, repair plumbing and wiring, and let's not forget drop a VW engine in minutes.

He worked in the Vending business in both Atlanta and Macon. He worked at Wal-Mart and Convenience Stores. His last public job was at Lowes. He loved to figure out how things worked and would take them apart whether you wanted him to or not. The last 10 or so years Daddy was James' caregiver, we learned from the best, and we all will continue to honor him.

Seldom did he miss a service at Parkway Baptist Church. He never judged others and would do what he could to lend a hand.
He loved to fish, tell fish tales and fry them to perfection. He would even pick them off the bone for us.
He never met a stranger, loved to talk and wouldn't or couldn't forget a face.

Bobby was raised in Wilcox County and graduated from Rochelle High School.
Daddy made the dash matter.
Our Daddy and Husband will be loved and missed.
