Celebrating the life of
Bobby Jason Hughes
March 23, 1979 - August 24, 2023
Bobby Jason Hughes passed away August 24, 2023.
Bobby was born March 23, 1979, in Savannah, Georgia. He graduated from Calvary Day School in 1997 and attended Johnson and Wales Culinary School in Charleston, South Carolina, to pursue his love of cooking.
Bobby had so many hobbies such as gardening, remodeling, landscaping, and of course cooking. The boy could cook up some food! His family and friends were so important to him, and he loved everyone unconditionally. He was always sending his mom a picture of a new plant he had bought, or he would get excited when something bloomed for the first time.
Bobby is predeceased by his brother Steven (Stevie) Hughes, his maternal and paternal grandparents. He is survived by his parents, Bobby and Elaine Hughes, his brother, Ashley Hughes and sister-in-law, Jennifer Hughes, nieces and nephews, Iler Gracen and Thompson Hughes, and Henderson, Madeleine, Thayer, and Weston Hughes.
He was a member of Calvary Baptist Temple since birth. He was currently employed with and was part owner of Hughes Service Company. This family’s life will not be the same nor will a person ever be missed more than “Little Bobby.”
Visitation will be held from 6:00pm until 8:00pm on Friday, September 1, 2023 at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel. Graveside service will be at 11:00am on Saturday, September 2, 2023 in Greenwich Cemetery.
I am so very sorry to hear of Bobby’s passing. He was a wonderful friend to me, and I loved him dearly. Praying for God’s strength and peace to surround you all. My parents send their love and prayers as well. We love you all.

My Deepest condolences and comforting prayers for the Hughes family. Personally Knowing Bobby from the time he was once “little” and on into him growing way past 6ft. tall, I’m truly grateful for the memories & friendship that began in the 1980’s along side Stevie and Ashley that will never perish.

I was blessed to truly know and love Bobby. Knowing him from the time we started Calvary together to growing into true friends over the many years. Bobby held a very special place in my heart and he always will. Mrs Elaine and Big Bobby, I wish this was all a terrible joke someone was playing. I pray God covers y’all in his love and He helps ease your pain and sorrow as well as everyone who will miss Bobby. Bobby, I love you and will miss your giant bear hugs at Spanky’s my friend!!

I was deeply saddened to hear this news. My condolences to Bobby’s family and friends who loved him. Bobby was a light and he will be greatly missed.
- Jackie Bass, Marietta, GA
I am so sorry. My first best friend. So many of my middle school memories involve Bobby. He loved y’all so much, and idolized his brothers. He would get homesick when he tried to spend the night at my house and y’all would have to come get him:). He was always sensitive, and so much fun. Praying for God’s grace, peace and hope.
- Matt Kitchell, Macon, GA
Such a good soul taken too early in life. He was such a nice guy and a good friend. May peace be with the family knowing that he is with the Lord and he was proud of his love for Jesus. Until we meet again my friend…

Deepest heartfelt condolences to the Hughes Family for your loss. Bobby was an amazing person and even better neighbor. When Bobby passed he left a small part of him in his neighborhood . We will miss seeing him drive his toy car down the street and competing to see who would have the better Christmas lights. But most of all, we will miss hearing his voice and seeing his smile. Bobby, you will Never be forgotten by us!!!!
- Tracy ( Brown Family) Alabama Love, Savannah , Ga
Bobby had a heart of gold. In an increasingly hazy fishbowl of endless Calvary memories, he still shines through in my mind. So sweet and kind to everyone, his lovable spirit lives long in our hearts. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
- Emily Thompson, Savannah , GA
So sad to see a name I remember and recognize from the grade school days at Calvary. He was the sweetest boy who had clearly grown into a fine man. He will be missed by friends and family alike. Love and light to all who knew him.
- Jessica Denmark Schroyer, Bloomingdale, GA
As I try to get my mind prepared for the visitation tonight, I sit here reading all the messages to Little Bobby’s family, my family. These messages were written by people who truly knew Little Bobby. No one said anything that’s not true about this young man who’s already missed so much that’s it’s unbearable. There’s nothing good about losing another nephew, brothers at that! All I can say is that in my heart I have no doubt that they are together. Elaine, Bobby, Ashley, Jennifer and all the children, just know that I love you and other that a piece of my own heart being torn apart, I can’t imagine your pain. Sometimes things happen that makes us ask, “Why, God?” and all we can do is look to Him in Faith- not understanding, just believing. I really think that this is one of those times. I don’t understand the why, but one thing I do know is that God is still God and that He is needed now more than ever before. I hope everyone, every member of my family, knows that I am praying for you.

I’ve known Bobby for almost 30 years. There wasn’t a time I can remember when he didn’t have a smile on his face. And there wasn’t a time when I was around him I wasn’t laughing. He always looked out for me. We recently would exchange things we learned about history and archaeology. He told me about the cabin in NC and we were supposed to go gold-digging up there. And anytime he cooked he made enough for anyone and everyone! He just recently helped my mom out by fixing her AC unit. She was crying because she couldn’t afford a new one and Bobby came and fixed it - after working all day! That’s the kind of person Bobby was. He would do ANYTHING for his family and friends. He was truly a beautiful person with a beautiful soul. I will miss him immensely. Sending all my love to his family and friends.
