In the words of the old Hank Williams Jr song, “Because you can’t starve us out and you can’t make us run ‘Cause we’re them old boys raised on shotguns… We can skin a buck, and run a trotline And a country boy can survive.” Bobby Gene Ledford age 73 was born December 14th, 1947…

I have so many fond memories of having Bobby in the choir at Alabama. He will be sorely missed by this community. I am so very sorry for your loss and I want you to know I will continue to remember you in my prayers.

I was a young 18yr old Tech student and met Bobby at Patterson's. Followed him to Ledford Hair Care until I graduated. Moved away and years later moved back to the Monroe area and picked up where I began, back in the chair! I respected Bobby for his love of his wife and of his family.....I recall his daughters being very young and he just gloated over them. Bobby always had a story to tell and you could guarantee walking away with a good laugh and a darn good haircut! Rest in peace Bobby.

Bobby was my barber for nearly 15 years. I always looked forward to sitting in that chair talking with Bobby mainly about fishing; he treated me like a good friend from the beginning. He always worked me into his schedule and whenever I entered his shop, he greeted me warmly with a big old smile on his face. I will miss him very much because he was one of the “good guys”.

Losing my barber is like losing my brother. From the time that Bobby's dad, Cliff died, Bobby has been a part of my liife. His mom worked for me and Bobby cut my hair. I won't be able to attend services in person because of I am recovering from Covid, but know that I will be there in spirit. Also know that I am praying for the Peace of Jesus Christ to be with all the family during this difficult time. Ernest

It is with regret that I can't pay my respects to my friend Bobby. I have a cold and I don't want to expose anyone. I will certainly miss my monthly conversation with Bobby at the barber shop. Your family is in our prayers. God bless. Joe R. Peace and Carolyn
Fred Sutton left a message on January 15, 2021:
We have lost a truly good man. We can take some joy as we know where he is today. He was a strong Christian and great family man. Not only was he my barber, but I considered him a good friend. Always enjoyed my haircut every 3 weeks. Knew we would have some good stories and most of all just laugh. Often heeded his advice on some things. I will surely miss him as I know the family will. Will keep the family in my prayers. —Fred Sutton

Mr. Bobby will surely be missed. He was always so friendly and welcoming whether it was with his sunny disposition or his Christian camaraderie, he always made you feel special.
