SAMMY BOBO, 83, of Tampa, died Nov. 17. Born in Macon, GA, he moved to Tampa in 1947 from New York. He was the owner of the Blue Ribbon Supermarket in Ybor City from 1947 until 2000. He was a tireless participant in all facets of Jewish and secular life in Tampa and was honored many times locally and worldwide for his philanthropy, service and dedication. A member of Congregation Rodeph Sholom, he was past president of the synagogue and its Men’s Club. He helped to restructure the Chessed Shel Emes and establish Jewish Memorial Gardens. He served in the National Guard. Survivors include his wife of 53 years, Rieva; children Ralph, Sam and Sheryl Bobo, Silvia and Meyer Weitzman, Sheri and Matt Gable, Debora Bobo and Debbie Williams; his siblings, Latifa Cohen, Chella Bobo, Pauline Rophie, Sam Marcadis, Ezra and Gloria Bobo and Jerry Breslaw; and 10 grandchildren. The family suggests memorials be made to Congregation Rodeph Sholom or to to fund research. (Segal Funeral Home, Beth David Chapel)
