Bobby Mac Reeves, originally from Woodson TX, passed away peacefully at his residence in Abilene, Texas on April 14th, 2021.
He was born on October 29th, 1952, to J.B. and Nellie Reeves in Throckmorton, Texas. He played football for Jim Ned and Cooper High Schools before going on to play at Rice University in Houston, Texas. He was also an honorary graduate of Baylor University in Waco, Texas.
More importantly he was a great dad, grandad, brother and friend. Bobby Mac loved his family and friends and truly impacted the lives of people that he met. He was definitely a memorable person, to say the least. Bobby lived life to the fullest and had a smile that would light up the room.
Bobby grew up in Woodson until the 4th grade. He loved this small Texas town and everyone in it. He was proud of where he came from and always said, "Put your hand on your heart when you say Woodson."
Proceeding him in death were his parents, J.B. and Nellie Reeves, brother Jim “Tooter" Reeves, sister Keely Jo Reeves, and daughter-in-law Sara Gross Reeves.
Bobby is survived by his older brother Clarence Edward "Chuck" Reeves of Waco, son J.P. Reeves of Abilene, daughter Laura Jo Reeves of Haskell, and grandchildren Brianna Roe, Rayden Wadley, Haylee Garcia, Mark Garcia, Lane Garcia and Carlee Reeves.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to M.D. Anderson Cancer Research Center - Kids Ward where Bobby Mac frequently visited the sick kids during his football playing days at Rice University or Meals on Wheels in Abilene. He will be greatly missed.

I will miss Bobby’s laughter, his stories, his smile, his ability to be a friend when the world felt so cold at times. Always there to talk to in good times and bad. Never to busy to check in on a friend to see how you were doing or if you needed anything. My dear friend for many years, many wonderful memories and laughter. He is so greatly missed. Forever in my heart and one of my dearest friends. I will miss those phone calls. So much love to his children and grandchildren and his older brother! He loved them dearly. The comfort is knowing he’s resting high on the mountain with no more pain. And so grateful that I don’t delete my voicemails often, so on those days I want to call him, I listen to his voice.❤️ And remember this larger than life man that so many loved. I know the angels love his laugh ... Twila Richards-Degnan

Little Bobby Reeves or 'Young Bull" were my nicknames for Bobby over the 45 years Bobby was in my life, He was one of my dearest and loved friends and there was hardly a day I did not talk to him over the phone and we always kept up with each other. I will surely miss that laugh of his as we would talk and share stories. Bobby was someone that you could pour your heart into during the difficult times of life. He will always be one of my best friends. God has healed him of his pain and I know he is with the Lord today. I thank the Lord for blessing me with his friendship over the years. You were like a brother to me. I love you and will see you again someday.

Lots of memories with Bobby. None better than he, Joe Whittaker, and I getting caught by the depot agent putting pennies on the railroad track. Only time I ever came close to outrunning Bobby Reeves! Railroad folks came to our homes and told our parents we would spend some time at the Boys School in Gatesville if he caught us again. 😂
