Bobby Watson Schulman, 86, passed away peacefully at his home in Wesley Woods on Wednesday morning, November 30, 2022. Bob had Parkinson’s disease for nearly 18 years, but nevertheless always had a positive attitude and was quick with a joke and a smile. His family and close friends were blessed to spend time with him during his last few days sharing memories of how he touched their lives. Bob was born and raised in Dothan, Alabama, the second son of Sam and Luverne Schulman. He had one older brother and one younger sister. Bob had a fun loving and kind nature and refused to speak poorly of another person. He was a practical joker and an avid joke teller who loved to make people smile. This quality stayed with him his entire life Bob was a lifelong athlete. In high school, he played baseball and was a member of the Dothan High state championship basketball team. After high school, Bob played basketball for four years at Centenary College in Shreveport, Louisiana where he earned his B.S. in Physical Education. While there, he met the love of his life, Johnnie Mae Hayes, and they were married in 1960. Bob continued to stay active in sports after college, running, playing tennis and he was an exceptional golfer. He actually hit two holes in one during his time on the green and also won his division in several local Shreveport golf tournaments. Immediately following college, Bob served in the United States Army, where he achieved the rank of Captain, and served as a reserve commissioned officer for ten years. He and Johnnie lived in Shreveport where he worked as a Deputy Clerk of the Court and as Clerk of the Court of Appeals. He and Johnnie raised their family in Shreveport and were active members of Noel United Methodist Church and their community for over 50 years. Bob and Johnnie adopted their daughter, Kimberly Anne from the Methodist Children’s Home in New Orleans in 1965, and two years later, a son, Troy Hayes. Both children are very blessed to have had such a kind, loving, sweet father who always put their needs and interests first. He was truly a great Dad. Bob is survived by his two children and their families, daughter Kim Tiernan and husband John Tiernan of Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia, and son Troy Schulman and his wife Robanne of Atlanta, Georgia, and their five grandchildren: John Patrick Tiernan and his wife Hillary Tapley, James Edward Tiernan, Anne Morgan and her husband John Cox, Eva Kennedy Schulman, and Easton Rose Schulman. He is also survived by his brother, Richard Schulman and his wife Ouida, and many cherished nieces and nephews.
