Bobby Joe Pickens

June 10, 1951 – Aug. 31, 2015

Cremation has taken place and no services are planned for Bobby Joe Pickens of Greybull. Bobby, 64, died Aug. 31 at the Billings (Mont.) Clinic Hospital after a long battle with diabetes, COPD and other complications.

He was born June 10, 1951, in St. Louis, the son of Arthur Sr. and Flora Turner Pickens. He received his education in Kansas and Texas and moved to Greybull from Dallas in 1970.

In his early years Bobby traveled and worked at different jobs. Later, he drove truck both locally and all over the United States and Canada until a back injury forced him to retire.

He loved the outdoors and the mountains, and looked at life as an adventure.

His wife, Della Rae Pickens, preceded him in death.

He is survived by his parents, Arthur Sr. and Flora Turner Pickens; two brothers and a sister-in-law, Art Pickens Jr. of Greybull and Don and Mary Pickens of Shell, and two nephews.
