Bobby Keckler, Jr. Obituary

Tarboro - 

Lertis Robert Keckler, Jr., age 78, passed away Thursday evening, January 11, 2024 with his loving family by his side., Affectionately known as "Bobby" by friends and family, he was born October 4, 1945 in Toledo, Ohio. He was preceded in death by his parents, Lertis Robert and Audrey Williams Keckler; sister, Joanne Whitaker; son, Randy Keckler; and mother and father in-law, Emmett "Pa" and Margie "Nanny" Pittman.
