Bobby was born in July, 1948 in Glendale, Arizona, to Donald and Jean C. Minzer Lockwood. He soon moved to Orange County, California where he became a legend. Brave, loyal, and good to most.

Always putting freedom first, never staying in one place to long, he touched many lives and always gave a hand to those in need.

My salute shall be hopping on my bike and riding without a helmet (for a couple miles).... 'Freedom is the wind in your face and the open road. Nothing makes us more alive than when we spread our wings and fly' -Bobby Lockwood
