Robert M. (Bobby) Hatter, 39, of Belleville, IL, born Tuesday, July 8, 1980, in Springfield, IL, passed away Saturday, September 7, 2019.
Bobby worked in the power generation and construction equipment industries.
Bobby loved his little girl, who he affectionately called “Boo”, loved all the activities of her life, loved to ride and share time on the bike with her, watch her as catcher on her softball team, often giving her pointers since he also caught when he played ball.
He was a friend to a countless number of people, many times described as a man who would do anything for you, always ready to help in anyway he could.
We are going to miss his truly unique sense of humor, always ready to go one on one with you, catching you off-guard and able to make you laugh at him and yourself.
Bobby was a man with a heart of compassion, a big, burly guy on the outside, but with a genuine softness on the inside, “a big teddy bear”. We will miss your bear-hugs and the love you showed us, but more than anything, we will just be always and forever missing you, Bobby – we love you so!
We know your “First Day” in heaven was the best “Good Day” you’ve ever had.
