Bobby Jiles, Jr

Bobby, Jr - a kind and happy man, a soft-spoken gentle man, a family man, father of six

Today's TMJ channel 4 - Oct 10

My dear friend and musical partner Bobby Jiles, Sr lost his 39 year old son on October 4, 2011 - a tragic auto accident on the Hoan Bridge in Milwaukee. It was a shock to those who knew Bobby Jr, as well as to those who did not. So many of you have expressed your concerns for the family, and Bobby and Dorothy are so grateful for your thoughts and prayers. Please add your personal message below. Your messages will serve as a comfort to the family when they are able to take the time to read them in the coming months.

    Bobby was a customer of mine at Zales and he was just the nicest guy. I saw him the night before the accident at Zales and we spoke for about 30 min about jewelry and about life. Such a kind man. My heart and prayers go out to Bobby's family and friends. I only met him twice, but I'm glad I did meet him!

    I know the essence of Bobby Jr. thru the gentleness of Lady JT and the sweetness and humility of Bobby Sr. My prayers and hugs go out to all family and friends and for Bobby Jr. to rest in peace. The grief of losing a child is one of the most tragic to bear. The pain of loss finally ebbs to a greater meaning and appreciation for the most precious gift of life. Out of our pain grows a bond with all parents whose children left this world too soon. Bobby Jr. lives on in memory and always in our hearts. May God soothe you with a tender touch, a caring smile and melodies of love. Blessings all. Love, Ginny
