As many of you know, Bobby was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved spending his free time with his family hunting and fishing. In remembrance of Bobby, the family has decided to honor him by donating to Trinity Oaks which is a nonprofit organization that provides services for underserved populations – such as veterans, youth, terminally ill and disabled – who benefit immensely from the outdoors, but otherwise would not be able to afford the experience. Bobby would love to see others enjoying the outdoors as much as he did. You can go to https://trinityoaks.org/donate/ to make a donation. Please add Bobby’s name in the notes box. Bobby was also a big fan of the Manvel Lions Club and baseball. The MLC is in process of developing a baseball park and we would like to support the construction project in Bobby’s name. Donations can be mailed to Manvel-Iowa Colony Lions Charities Foundation, Inc., PO Box 678, Manvel, TX 77578.
The family would like to extend a special thank you for all the love, prayers and support during this difficult time.
Condolences may be sent to the Wisnoski family in care of Jeter Memorial Funeral Home at www.jeterfuneralhome.com.
