Bobby, one of four children, was a lifelong resident of Butler. He graduated from Butler High School in 1973. In his early years, he worked for the Lens Plant in Butler until its closing in 1979. Bobby then worked as a machine operator for Thorco Manufacturing and Mr. Longarm, both in Butler.
Bobby was likable but sometimes moody. His enjoyments included judging bbq, vegetable gardening and spending time with his nephews and nieces. He always liked hanging out with “Zellmer” and Junior. You could see them most of the time sitting on the driveway, shooting the breeze, and sometimes even enjoying a cold beverage. Bobby could always count on Diane for a ride or just an ear to listen. He always loved when Sara would bring him food to eat. On the holidays at Francie and Larry’s he always brought his own containers to take home extras. Bobby loved to eat. Bobby would always call Francie after he had talked to his brother, Johnny. He would say “Have you talked to your brother?” Then he would say “I’ve been on the phone with him for over an hour! Boy, can he talk!” Bobby enjoyed helping Rufus and Zellmer get the garden ready, and later enjoyed the profits. Always proud and would show and share what they had grown. He will miss and be missed by all of his friends at “The Alley.”
Bobby is survived by his brother, John Giacone and wife Joyce of Belton, Missouri; one sister, Francie Scott and husband Larry of Butler, Missouri; and nephews and nieces. He was preceded in death by his parents; one brother, Vincent Giacone; and a nephew, Chad Scott.
