Our prayers are with the family of Bobby Lee “Bob” Tollison, 84, of Coal City, who passed away April 5 2021. He and his wife, Shirley, were members of Wattsville Freewill Baptist Church. He attended services there as long as he was able. Bob loved Coal City and he has a special interest in the history of Coal City. Every time I would come in contact with him he would ask me questions about the history. Bob will be sadly missed by all of us who knew and loved him.
