Obituary Transcribed by Kay Parrish Thompson (46967117)
The Tattnall Journal April 19, 1979

Funeral services for Bobby Futch,29,who was killed in a shootout with Long County Sheriff Cecil Nobles Thursday, were held Sunday at the Pigott Branch Baptist Church at 3 p.m., burial in Glennville City Cemetery.
Futch died after a high speed chase with the sheriff's vehicle on the Fort Stewart Military Reservation near Ludowici. He was found dead in his car after exchanging gunfire with the sheriff and his deputy, Bobby Smith. Nobles was injured by a shotgun pellet from Futch's gun during the incident, but it is not clear whether Futch was killed by a shot from the sheriff's or the deputy's gun. Nobles said the incident was apparently triggered by a domestic quarrel in which he and the deputy intervened.
Futch was a native of Toombs County and was employed by Wallace Williams Heating and Air Construction Co of Statesboro.
Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Shelia Futch, Statesboro, a daughter, Miss Cindi Futch, Statesboro, two sons, Robert Jr. and Michael Futch both of Statesboro, his mother, Mrs. Dorothy Hall of Surrency; his father, L.H. Futch of Reidsville; a grandmother, Mrs. Jessie Tootle of Savannah, three sisters, Mrs. Shirley Perkins of Glennville, Mrs. Nancy Hall of Savannah, and Miss Lynn Hall of Surrency; a brother, Mike Hall of Surrency.
