Obituary for Bobby Leroy Schell

Bobby Leroy Schell was received into the arms of Jesus on July 9, 2021. Bob was born on June 17, 1938 to William Toliver Schell and Christine Osburn Schell in Jeff Davis County, Georgia. He married Lois Resseau in 1999 and they had a very happy life together. He graduated from Jeff Davis County High School in 1956 and moved to Jacksonville FL. He proudly served his country in the United States Air Force. He later moved to Atlanta GA where he had a career as a warehouse manager for several wholesale food businesses on the Georgia State Farmers Market and retired from Sutherland’s Foodservice in 2000. He loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter. He was a member of the First Baptist Church Eatonton, where he served as a deacon, a member of the New Hope Sunday School Class, the Chancel Choir and served on several committees. He was a proud member and past president of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. He was an instructor of the Duluth Cloggers and various other clogging groups in the Atlanta area for many years. His groups performed at the 1984 World’s Fair in Knoxville, on the Dinah Shore Show in Las Vegas and went on an exchange group trip to Romania in the mid 1970’s. His clogging group was a frequent performer at the Putnam County Dairy Festival for years.
