Obituary For

Bobby Denham

10/26/1942 - 07/27/2018

Bobby, or Duck as he was known, was born the son of Joe and Ruby Lee (Fulks) Denham on October 26, 1942, in Glenpool, OK. He attended Glenpool schools until his 17th birthday when he volunteered for the U.S. Air Force, serving during the Vietnam War as a bomb loader and prepping the bombers for their many wartime missions. Once home he met Janice with whom he first became best friends . Janice helped Bobby regain his smile and after many years together they united in marriage, enjoying 36 years together. They could crack each other up and loved to argue with one another.

They eventually made their home in Siloam Springs, AR, and spent 20 years raising cattle, chickens and hay from 1989 to 2000. Once retired they moved to Bartlesville in 2003. Bobby loved sports and watching football. In their younger days they loved to go dancing, and in later years became home bodies. Bobby was one of a kind and he was loved by those that knew him the best.

Bobby is survived by his loving wife Janice of the home; six children, Steve Escobedo, Tom Escobedo, Debra Phelan, Angela Phelan, Daniel Escobedo Jr. and Veronica Phelan; and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Arrangements are under the direction of Carter Davis and the Davis Family Funeral Home – Walker Brown Chapel. Online condolences and remembrances may be shared at
