Bobby was born on January, 20, 1935 in Enloe, Texas to Truett and Ruth (Blevins) Carrington. He graduated from Enloe High School and went to East Texas State University before joining the Army. Bob married Brenda Cain on June 3, 1955 in Cooper. After his military duties, he graduated from Baylor University.

Bobby may not have had a written “bucket list”, but he lived his life to the fullest. From dairy farming, helping people with his physical therapy, taking his kids on camping trips to owning a golf course; he made every moment count. In the army, he and Brenda were able to travel to many countries and make life-long friends. He enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren. He was loved and respected by everyone who knew him.

Bobby is survived by his eldest daughter, DeDe Lovett and her husband Danny, a son, Eric Carrington and his wife Phyllis, and his daughter, Amanda Abonza; six grandchildren, two brothers, Jerry Carrington and Ted Carrington; sister-in-law Cathy Rochwalsky and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his wife Brenda Cain Carrington.
