Lias Bobbitt, Jr. was surrounded with family and love before his final days; he was called home on November 25, 2019, after bringing so much love, and kindness for 93 years, and six days.

Lias Bobbitt, Jr. was born November 19, 1926 in Trenton, Tennessee; a gift given to his parents, Betty (née Patton) Bobbitt, and Lias Bobbitt (Sr.)

As a child, he received his education at a school named Rosenwald.  During this early time of his life he also confessed his faith, love, acceptance of Jesus our Lord, and savior at the Oak Grove Baptist church; and showed his love through song, by singing beautiful harmonies in a quartet. Beginning in 1950, life began to change; and with this change, in October 1950, Lias Bobbitt married Minnie Maybelle, (née Ward), Bobbitt, and shortly after moved to Indianapolis, Indian.

While in Indianapolis, he was employed, at Circle City Parking, leaving to work and retire from Strack & Wetzel. During this time of his life he continued his road with God, and joined Antioch Missionary Baptist church, bringing his gift of his tenor voice to the senior choir, male chorus, preachers choir; attending all practices every week. He loved to sing so much that he would create own practice by singing impromptu songs, and commercials in his home. Later in life, by request, he became a member of the Deacon board. 

Preceding Lias Bobbitt, Jr. were his wife, Minnie Bobbitt, three of his children, Willie Lee, Olivia Ann, and Gabe Bobbitt, his siblings sister Martha Doyle, Lee Bobbitt, and Melvin Bobbitt.

Lias Bobbitt, Jr. was known for his silence, wisdom, fashion, and quick wit. He always would say, “You have to keep moving if you don’t, something with catch you!”, living his final days on the move, and to the absolute fullest that anyone possibly could. He really did enjoy life, and will be missed very much by so many.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory his three daughters Martha Chappell (Waller), Georgia Anderson, (Donald), Rosa Price (Larry), grandchildren,  Danna Appleton (Carl) Leemichael  Chappel (Margaret) Betty Hankins, DC Anderson, Frederick Anderson (Sequoia)and Briana Anderson; Anthony, Gregory, Synetra Meriweather, Jennifer Caruthers, Betty Johnson, Latoya Thomas, Artice, Destiny, Gabe Cathy; in-laws, Martha Bobbitt, Champ Ward (Lislotte) .Gracie Meriweather (Arthur) Ethel Sims and host of great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews;
