In Loving Memory
Waynesville- Bobby Reeves McCracken, Sr., age 81, a kind and friendly man, passed away Tuesday, March 3, 2020.

He had resided in Morristown, Tennessee before returning to his home in Haywood County where he had resided for the past 20 years.

We know that our beloved "Papaw" will be watching over us from heaven.
