Bobby Gene Pinkston, 90 of Hartford, Kentucky went home to be with Jesus on Saturday, April 16, 2022. He was born on June 15, 1931, in Daviess County, Kentucky to the late Hugh and Oleighla Alford Pinkston. Bobby was a member of Beulah Cumberland Presbyterian Church and he enjoyed farming, gardening, Hereford cows, raising draft horses and in his later years watching marathons of old westerns. He was a former superintendent at Green Coal Company, Brown Badgett Coal Company and Weebro Horton Mines.

He was beloved by everyone who ever met him; A fantastic father, a great husband, a loving papaw and a best friend to all walks of life. No matter the circumstance, you’d always leave with a story of something funny/family or life inspiring, that Bobby and Sallye did while you were with them.

Aside from his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 71 years, Sallye M. Pinkston; two sons, Michael Gene Pinkston and Timothy J. Pinkston and one son-in-law, Gary Lowe Allen. He leaves wonderful memories and beautiful examples in the hearts of his family and friends who were always entertained by his stories and wonderful sense of joy and laughter. He leaves behind to cherish these memories, his children, Terry Gene (Marie) Pinkston of Nashville, Evelyn Marie (Johnny) Vickers of Sacramento, Gwen Allen of Beda and Bobbie Gale (Norman) Woosley of Calhoun and one sister, Lila Ann Allen of Evansville, IN. Bobby was blessed with ten grandchildren, twenty-one great-grandchildren and five great-great- grandchildren.
