With deep sadness, we report the tragic death yesterday of young entrepreneur businessman Bobby Graves of Heath.
Bobby was well-known and well-liked throughout the community, owned several businesses and employed over 30 people.
Although details are still sketchy, Bobby was apparently killed yesterday afternoon in a hunting accident at his cattle ranch in Rains County , when he apparently fell near a creek and his gun discharged. Since he was alone at the time, no one actually knows the details. When he did not respond to numerous cell phone calls from his business associates, his ranch hands began searching for him, found his empty truck and then his body.
In just his mid-30s, Bobby was a loving husband and father who owned several businesses, including a mortgage company, a concert lighting and medical equipment firm. He also raised a large herd of cattle on his farm.
Bobby leaves behind his wife, Shelle Graves, two teenage step-daughters, two daughters – ages 12 and 8 – plus their 6-year-old son. The children all attend public schools in Heath. read more
