Bobby was born in Oklahoma and moved to California, where he met his wife, Donna, who preceded him in death. He served in the Air Force during the Korean War.

In 1968, Bobby and his wife moved to Florence, where they raised their family. He worked in route sales for all of his career.

He is survived by his son David Gates and his wife, Fawn, of Florence; his son Steve Gates and wife, Lori, of Florence; his daughter Barbara Munsterman and her husband, Paul, of Canby, Ore.; his grandchildren Jason, Nathan, Heather, Jonathan, Erin and Megan; and
