Nicholas Russell Bobbie

Joy came to Ron and JoAnn Bobbie when they learned that this precious blue-eyed blond baby would start their family. They soon learned that Caroline was waiting in the wings for Nick, and she was born the following year.

Preceded in death by JoAnn Blue Bobbie, Nick is survived by his father, Ronald John Bobbie, mother Frances Dayton Bobbie, brothers, Daniel McGrath Dayton and Christopher John Bobbie, and sister Caroline Marie Bobbie, all of Raleigh. He is also survived by his beloved grandmother, Virginia Bobbie, of Whiting, New Jersey, and his aunts, uncles and cousins, all of whom loved him dearly.

Nick graduated from Cardinal Gibbons High School, class of 2006. He attended Appalachian State University. He lived life on his own terms, often amazing his family.

His loyalty and generosity to his friends were legendary, to which his co-workers, soccer teammates and coaches will attest.

He was a master of trivia, especially popular culture, and of board games. He was a fan of Manchester United, Carolina Panthers, and the Carolina Hurricanes. His employment history included Mo's Southwestern Grill, Jersey Mike's, Mi Cancun, and his dream was to open his own restaurant.

When Nick smiled, it lit up the world. We adored him and will miss him terribly. It comforts us to know that he is back in the arms of JoAnn. A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at 11:00 a.m., Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 2718 Overbrook Drive, Raleigh, NC with a visitation to immediately follow. Inurnment will be at Raleigh Memorial Park, 7501 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh, NC.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to the Lucy Daniel's Center.

Arrangements under the direction of Mitchell Funeral Home at Raleigh Memorial Park, Raleigh, NC.
