Bobby Gene Quinton, Sr., of Covington, passed away Saturday, September 12, 2020, at the age of 61. Bobby loved music with a passion, a passion that he passed down to his children. He was a bass player in a gospel group, the Fishermen, where they traveled the US. While in the group, Bobby met his loving wife, Rogene. They fell in love quickly and were married for 42 years.
