Mr. Bobby "Bob" Farmer was born in Hartsville, South Carolina on November 11, 1954. He was the son of the late James and Burneed R. Farmer. He departed this earthly life on Friday, May 7, 2021.
He was educated in the Lee County Public School System, where he received his diploma.
As a teen he was a Bus Driver for Lee County Public School System, until he graduated from High School.
At an early age, Bobby began playing his guitar at John Wesley Temple Church as he accepted the Lord as his Savior. He shared his talent with many by teaching them to play the guitar. He visited many churches as he shared his hobby and talent as a guitarist so proudly. He was a faithful member to his church playing his guitar.
Bobby was employed at PPM in Society Hill, South Carolina as a Security Guard. He was a faithful employee. After leaving PPM he gained employment with “Sara Lee – L’eggs” in Hartsville, South Carolina.
“Bob” as he was affectionately called was a very quiet and humble person although, he had ideas of his own. He loved people and enjoyed talking about his guitar. Music was a comfort to him in many ways. “When words fail music spoke”: Bob will be missed by many who knew him.
Those surviving to cherish Bob’s memories are: one daughter, Natasha F. Rogers of Rock Hill, South Carolina; one granddaughter, Natalia Rogers of Rock Hill, South Carolina; five sisters, Lola C. Bishop of Hartsville, South Carolina, Deloris A. Williams of Hartsville, South Carolina, Ella F. Peterson of Hartsville, South Carolina, Eunice Boone of Brooklyn, New York, and Shirley Green of Washington, District of Columbia; three brothers, James W. Farmer of Brooklyn, New York, George Jr. Green of Wilson, North Carolina, and Marvin Green of Washington, District of Columbia; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
The family will receive friends at the home of his sister Lola C. Bishop, 912 A Street, Hartsville, SC. We ask that you please wear your mask.
Please keep the family of Bobby Farmer in your thoughts and prayers.
