Bobby was born on July 3, 1955 in Duval County Florida to Clyde Tweed and Anna Ruth Newton. He lived in St. Petersburg, Florida at birth and was raised by his paternal grandmother and grandfather, the late Sarah Neil Chandler and Robert Nelson Tweed in Madison County, NC.

Bobby was a fun and loving fellow, and achieved many milestones while overcoming many obstacles. Bobby is loved by all who knew him and will be greatly missed.
In addition to his paternal grandparents, Bobby was preceded in death by his brother, Gilbert Tweed.
