Robert Anthony Kight will be greatly missed by his family and friends as he passes from this life to the next.
Bobby was a big bear of a man who is loved by many for his gentleness with children, his generosity with his time and things, his raw humor, and his fierce opinions that were not easily swayed.
He is known by God as one of His beloved and known by us as Bobby, UB, Big Bear, Bubba, Son, Brother, Funcle, Nephew, Cousin, Bulldog, The Chef, and Buddy.
He was born in Washington, D.C. on Aug. 6, 1970, and died peacefully in his sleep on May 31, 2019, in Ocean Pines, Maryland.
He was known as a gifted athlete with a sharp mind. Bobby loved playing, watching and everything about sports from the first time he watched the Cowboys on Monday Night Football to listening to the Yankees on his transistor radio while sitting on the beach.
Always thirsty for knowledge, he was the epitome of a critical thinker and a fierce debater.
For a family who is never quiet, we are at a loss for words to express how much we love Bobby.
He lives on through his family to whom he was always so loyal: parents, Bob and Ellen Kight; sister and brother, Marlene and Joel Marvin; brother and sister, Brian and Lauren Kight; brother and sister, Charlie and Jaclyn Kight; and his cherished nieces and nephew, Audrey, Lincoln, and Gianna.
A funeral service was held on Tuesday, June 4, 2019, at the Burbage Funeral Home in Berlin. Interment followed at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Dagsboro, Delaware.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Lands End Fellowship, 102 Worcester St. Ocean City, Maryland 21842, where Bobby joyfully served a hearty meal and a warm conversation to all who entered.
