My heart goes out to the Elsenbrook Family. Clay and Bobby were good friends at school and church in our high school years. They were on the swim team and played basketball at church. Bobby was instrumental in getting Clay and I together. They planned surprised visits at my locker at Waltrip in our senior year. Bobby was full of smiles, jokes, laughter and brotherly love. Bobby's mom gave Clay and I our baby shower for our daughter, Mindy. Bobby, what a wonderful person he was and will be forever remembered in my life. He is with Clay in God' s loving Home rolling that basketball down the winged sides of Clay's Mercury, swimming and enjoying God's Grace. Prayers of comfort are being said for Bobby's family. God Bless.

Bobby was a barrel of laughs. A real wild man! I don't think he had a mean bone in his body until he put on a football uniform. RIP, Bobby.

Like it was said in a comment earlier...that Bobby was a different person on the football field then off. I played with him and he was a hard hitter and pound for pound he would hit you with all he had. Rest in peace Bobby.

Bobby took me under his wing when I first moved to Texas in the 5th grade, he and Trudy defended my California accent!  Bobby was a great boy, teen and adult.  Never a dull moment when you were around him.  He will be sorely missed, my heart goes out to his family and friends.

Bobby Elsenbrook had the best smile of any guy I've ever known.  Bobby & I were really good friends in junior high, I'm sorry we lost that close relationship.  We would write notes to each other & compare our love life's, & what we thought we were going to make on our report cards or if we were going to The Place or to The Jailhouse.  He had one teacher he was always worried about, it wasn't Wadsworth or Clauson, but another man.  Can anyone remember another male teacher that wasn't a coach or shop teacher? Bobby had a crush on Donna Payne & of course Donna had a crush on David Vivian.  I still have some of those notes.  He started signing his notes as Teddy Turtle after we found a little turtle & that's what we named it.  Bobby liked to swim & I'm pretty sure he was on the swim team once we got to Waltrip.  During the summer the gym was open at Black & I would meet Bobby there & we'd eat popcorn.  He also like to sing & was in the choir at Black.  Greg Moore was always singing Crystal Ships by The Doors & Bobby would be singing Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond, both were good guys and like Troy & so many others gone too soon.  I'm sorry as we grew older we moved in different directions but whenever I saw Bobby he still had that great smile.  Love you Bobby RIP💕

I remember talking to Bobby inbetween classes in the halls at Black, more than at any other time. Since he and Sam (Suzanne Dorsey) were so close, I was often there to witness their exchange of notes, confidences, and witticisms. I believe someone affectionately nicknamed him, ¨Chipmunk Cheeks!¨ His dimples were often on display, as his jovial disposition prompted his ever present, effervescent smile. I posted the following message on the Heights Funeral Home website.

I am glad I was able to attend the touching tribute to Bobby today. It was lovely to meet his wife Kim, and his dad, Richard. The heartfelt reflections and amusing anecdotes of both Eric and April (his adult children) will long be remembered. I am sorry I was unable to visit with some of the other members of Bobby´s family, although it was good to see Debbie and Bruce. I knew Bobby from F. M. Black Jr. High and Waltrip Sr. High. I always enjoyed seeing him at reunions, mixers, and Jeff Webb´s picnics. I have many fond memories of Bobby. He was always so upbeat, fun, and cheerful. He had the sweetest countenance. I am not surprised that he produced such amazing children; grandchild, Sterling, and left a legacy of life lessons, pranks, and generosity. My condolences and deepest sympathy to Bobby´s family and friends. I will miss his smile.
