Our time on Earth is limited, and it is up to us to leave our mark and make a positive impact on the world. Bobby Blanchard lived each day making the world a better place. Whether it be through his intricate iron artwork creations, his lovingly prepared food dishes, his contagious smile and witty sense of humor, or his loving arms always ready to hold the babies, ease a pain, catch a tear, or provide help to those who needed it. Bobby was a proud deacon at his church, a past member of the Hammond Lions Club, a devoted son, a compassionate brother, a wonderful husband, a loving father, a supportive grandfather, and a selfless friend.
