Bobby could not say remember, as he said, we renumber him

Robert "Bobby" McCoskey

 Robert "Bobby" McCoskey was born intellectually disabled and was later stolen by the pandemic on April 29, 2020, at age 55. Bobby was kind, thoughtful, and always a little bit goofy. Though he was a grown man, he was very much a big kid. To say he could light up a room does not do him justice. No cliche could. Bobby brought joy with him everywhere he went. Always the life of the party and taking the time to make everyone smile.


  Bobby chose to spend his life giving back to the world. Though he was a man of little means, he had a unique ability to see others' needs and do his best to fulfill them. Bobby volunteered at food drives, church activities, yard sales and gave the shirt off his back, literally. He spent decades volunteering for the Salvation Army in Southern Indiana. Known for ringing the bell while wearing silly hats, he often raised the most money for the cause. Bobby carried joy in his heart and his heart on his sleeve, which he shared everywhere he went. His good deeds didn't stop there though, in fact, they didn't seem to stop anywhere. Bobby made a name for himself. The Boy Scouts of America recognized Bobby with honors such as Life Scout, Order of The Arrow, and Assistant Scout Master. He happily spent his time at meetings, camping, and teaching other scouts sign language. 


 He was not one to brag, but a couple of his proudest achievements were medaling at the Indiana Special Olympics in bowling and being named Prom King at one of the dances organized for those with disabilities. The loss of Bobby McCoskey is a loss for the world. No more big smiles, no more saying "don't tell mom," no more handmade keychains, and no more beams of pride as he talked about his family. 


  He was loved, and his family is left with broken hearts.
