    Robert Eugene “Bobby” Pennington, 41 , of Kenbridge, unexpectedly passed away on September 10, 2022 as a passenger in a fatal car accident. “Bobby” as you would know him, was the youngest of Everett and Nancy Pennington’s three children. We remember most fondly his time as Bob the Barber; a local fixture in the Town of Kenbridge over the last 8 years, Bobby was the owner and sole proprietor of his beloved barber shop. Many will have had the pleasure of seeing his joy as he cut hair, always with a smile and good conversation. Some might better remember him as a baseball player in his youth, or a deer hunter in the fall or fishing at the family pond. Occasionally you might have seen him with his ever present companion, his dog, Lucky. Many know him as a relative or simply as a friend. We remember him today as our boy, working on his life, working to improve himself and overcome the challenges that life brings to all of us with an infectious laugh and a deep personal faith. He is survived by his parents Everett Lee Pennington and Nancy Abernathy Pennington; his brother, Everett Lee “Buddy” Pennington, Jr.; his sister, Bonnie P. Johnson and husband Steve; aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and many friends. He was a member of Kenbridge Baptist Church where a celebration of his life will be held Saturday, September 17, 2022 at 11am. In lieu of flowers please consider donations to the Kenbridge Baptist Church, P.O. Box 445, Kenbridge, VA 23944 or to the Southside SPCA, 797 Starlight Lane, Kenbridge, VA 23974 or Lunenburg Ministries, P.O.
