Bobby was a good friend. He stood out among others for his quiet, respectful, loyal friendship. Now he has entered the eternity we all await. May God take him from strength to strength and raise him in glory one day.

Bobby was a fine person, smart, funny and a pretty good point guard in basketball.  And, he was a very good friend. The block between Rugby and Cambridge that housed Billy and Bobby Piephoff and Arthur Weems could be a bit strange at times--but was always fun. People as good as Bobby should not be taken from us this early.

I was very sorry to hear about Bobby's passing. He was a good friend going back to our days at S.R. Young and continuing through graduation at CPHS. Not only did he have a great sense of humor, but he was kind, quite intelligent and a pretty good athlete. I am sure he made an excellent pastor and touched many lives through the years. I am one of many I am sure who are thankful we knew Bobby and are grateful for the life he led. Rest in peace, old friend.

I remember Bobby mainly from high school and plaiying baseball together. he was a very fine second basemen. He always was that compassionate person you feltt very comfortable around.  His Dad was around often to say prayersl when needed.

I lost my wife on Oct 15, when she passed just a month ago, so I know the pain his family is feeling..  I know God had a special place picked out just for Bobby.  He will always be remembered.  My condolences to the family.

God bless you.

When in grade school and the Presby Preacher's house (manse) was being renovated, the Piephoff family lived with our family. It got kinda hectic since they went to a different school than my brother and me   We all made do and were better friends for it   RIP my friend, Bobby.

So sorry to hear of Bobby's passing. He was a nice guy with a dry wit. He also was a good basketball player & was a member of the 1959 State Championship team. He will be missed by the Class of '59! RIP Bobby!

I am saddened to hear about Bobby Piephoff and echo many of the comments that precede mine.  I did not play baseball with Bobby but I did enjoy riding with Bobby and Ashmore in elementary school days to band practice for elementry shcool students in the area.  Of course we were in the CPHS band together after that.  So add to all his good qualities mentioned before me his musical talent too.  I'm sure God has a nice place in heaven ready for Bobby.
