Celebrating the life of

Robert S. "Bobaloo" Register, Jr.

Passed away on March 04, 2022

Robert S.

Robert S. “Bobaloo” Register, Jr., 78, passed away suddenly on Friday, March 4, 2022 at his residence.  He was born in Montgomery, Alabama son of the late Robert S. Register, Sr. and Cecile Rooks Register. 

Bob was a graduate of Savannah High School and a communicant of St. James Catholic Church. 

Bob's love of being on the water is what began his career at Thunderbolt Marina in 1969, then to St. Simons, Isle of Hope and then to Spencer Boat Company in West Palm Beach, Florida as a successful yacht salesman. 

Later, Bob moved back to his beloved Savannah and had a great career as a local car salesman.  His outgoing personality and his genuine love for people made him one of the best in the sales industry.  He opened and operated his own car rental business, Bucksaver Rent a Car.

After retiring from the sales industry, he embraced his true calling, storytelling.  His vast knowledge of Savannah's history and his witty and charismatic manner made him one of Savannah's best tour guides offering humor and factual information delivered in true Bobaloo fashion. His tours were often requested by guests from near and far.

Bob had many hobbies that he enjoyed throughout his life.  He was especially fond of travel.  His favorite trip was to Alaska, which he did twice.  He enjoyed photography, target shooting with his son Bob III, football, boating and fishing. Later in life he enjoyed the simpler things in life, a good meal with family, a great conversation with friends, listening to the rain on a summer afternoon, bird watching and working in his flower garden.  He loved his pets, Polo and Scruffy whom brought him much joy.  He had a generous heart, often giving to children’s and animals charities.

He is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Jan Glover Register, sons Robert III "Bob" (Carol) Register, John (Astrid) Register; stepson, Ricky (Kim) Stalnaker and stepdaughter, Kristin Howell; grandchildren, Haley & Hannah Register, Klaus & Max Register, Rick & Zach Stalnaker & Georganna Howell.

The funeral service will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 10, 2022 at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel.  The family will receive friends from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. prior to the service.

Active pallbearers will be Ricky Stalnaker, Rick Stalnaker, Jr., Zachary Stalnaker, TJ Parsons, Michael Parsons, Steven Parsons, Dustin Medsker.  Honorary pallbearer will be Pete Liakakis.

Entombment will follow in the Forest Lawn Memory Gardens Mausoleum.

I was thinking about him just the other day. Bob was a outstanding tour guide and respected by the entire staff at Old Savannah Tours. Rest in Peace Bobaloo.

- Donna and Jeff Youngblood, Savannah, Ga

I was very sad to hear of Bobaloo's passing and I send my deepest condolences to his family. I had the pleasure of working with him at Old Savannah Tours. He was truly one of a kind. I could listen to all of his fishing trip stories and the vast knowledge of history one person could have for hours! He will be missed by many.
