Bobby Ray's Story
Mr. Bobby Ray Proctor, age 69, of Marion, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at the Charles George VA Medical Center in Asheville.
A native of Marion, Bobby was born on July 22, 1947 to the late Ray Proctor and Margaret Allen Proctor. He was the owner of Proctor Installation Service, a well-respected home improvement company doing business all over western North Carolina. A proud veteran of the U. S. Army, he served his country faithfully during the Vietnam War.
Bobby enjoyed every minute of his life and lived it to the fullest. His ability to make people laugh and his infectious smile won him many friends. To meet him was memorable, to know him was to love him, and to lose him hurts those near and dear to him. He loved his family and friends and was a wonderful father and grandfather. He knew how blessed he was by his life and his family and never hesitated to express that to those he loved. A sister, Sherry Elaine Proctor, preceded him in death.
Bobby leaves two children, Missy Proctor Vaughn and husband Chris of Nebo and Steve Proctor and wife Michelle of Hickory; four brothers and sisters, Charles Proctor of Marion, Paul Proctor of Morganton, Kim Proctor Cable of Marion and Marvin Nix of Marion; and five grandchildren, Hayden, Maggie, Peyton, Allie and Zack.
A memorial service and celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, March 25, 2016 at 11 a.m. in the chapel of Westmoreland Funeral Home in Marion with Rev. Pat Buchanan speaking. The family will receive friends from 10-11 a.m. prior to the service at the funeral home. An online register is available at www.westmorelandfuneralhome.com.
