Bobby - 07-13-2008, 02:36 PM

Well, it's great news to hear that Bobby is still kicking. He is a really class act. There were several years between the time that I played with him in Louisiana and when I ran into him again in Charlotte. He walked right up to me and called me by my first name.

It is amazing nobody can hide anymore because of the internet, unless they really try hard.

I found this picture from the cover of Billiards Digest where Bobby won the PBA Championship in Charlotte, NC.
I can't quite make out the date.

Tommy and Johnny both played out of the room I grew up in, Peg's Pocket in Miami. What a great room that was in the 80s. Guys use to walk in, literally screwing their cues together as they came in the door, asking for a 100 set action. It was not unusual to see every one of the gold crowns in action with the locals. There were literally dozens of players, young and old, world class to banger that were looking to match up.

ahh the good ol days.

Some of those days were better than others...lotsa road warriors came through and no one got the best of Tommy Brown on his table. John DiToro, is/always will be a close friend and one of the best pool player on the planet with a full time job.

Jay,

I'm pretty sure I played Bobby on the "TV" table Accu Stats set up at the DCC a couple of years ago. It was the only table with the "measles" cue ball. Thankfully they weren't commenting on the match but it was live on the 'net. People were telling me he was some kind of champ from a few years ago. My guess at the date is 2004 or 2005.

I remember walking over to him and offering to shake his hand. He stared at me and reminded me the score was only 6 - 3. At the end of the match, I don't remember any of the outbursts some posters have mentioned. I thought he was a perfect gentleman, though disappointed.

Please tell me I'm not crazy. I've already made two errors in my posts today!

Lyn

any update on bobby - 01-20-2015, 05:17 AM

During the 80,s my dad owned Boca Billiards in Boca Raton fl. Bobby was there 5 nights a week and we became friends. I took lessons from him for about a year. I still suck at the game. However he gave me his case because my name was bob also. One day he just vanished and i never heard from him again. I was told he was killed, but i think that was a rumor. Since i dont play i would like to give this back to him. If anyone has a lead please post. Here is a pic of the Handmade tooled leather case which beared his knickname. ``honest Bob``

Seems like he was working for Rusty Wallace for years. I'd contact someone in their organization and see if they know. I saw Bobby Williams several times in Vegas in the 80's. He played with some VNEA teams that always played in the nationaltournament at the Riviera. I always thought it was funny when an amateur league team would have a pro player on it. But the definition of "pro" has historically been vague, at best, and I saw lots of VNEA teams with pro players...usually only 1 on a team. Sometimes they won, sometimes not.
