He was a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, an electrician and an engineer. Bobby was an avid outdoorsman; he enjoyed both hunting and fishing.

He was a good person, a jack-of-all-trades and a man of his word. He is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Grover and Pauline Fortner; papaw. Fred R. Tanner Sr.; and uncle. Jerry Fortner. He is survived by his father, Robert Glenn Tanner; his mother, Nancy (Dominic II) Prino; a daughter, Tori Lycans; one grandson, Kyuss Lycans; a sister, Andrea (Paul) Bennett; two nieces, Allie and Morgan Bennett; and an uncle, Fred R. (Joyce) Tanner Jr. A celebration of life service will be conducted at a later date. Reger Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences may be made to the family at
