Bobby Ray Estes

June 26, 1930 — April 23, 2020

Bobby Ray Estes, 89, of Crandall, TX went to be with the Lord on April 23, 2020. Bobby was born on June 26, 1930 to William and Lola Bell Patrick Estes in Pampa, TX. Born in Pampa, they moved to Crandall where he was raised and graduated from Crandall ISD in 1949. He was a locksmith working for the Dallas Independent School District for 26 years before retiring. Bobby married Mary Lois McFarlin in Kaufman on March 25, 2000, and they just celebrated 20 loving years together. He spent time repairing small engines, lawn mowers and weed eaters for his friends and neighbors. He delivered meals-on-wheels, visiting people in the assisted living homes, and helping anyone who was in need of assistance. He was a very benevolent man who gave unselfishly to everyone. Bobby was a member of the Central Baptist Church of Crandall as a beloved deacon and served on numerous committees. He was preceded in death by his parents, first wife of 48 years, Mary Katheryn Baily Estes; sisters Jean Benson and Mary McLaughlin; children Kelly June McFarlin Gallien and Danny Clois McFarlin; grandchildren Britt Estes Moore and Chyanne Grace Gallien.
