The Texas State Legislature introduced a bill of great tribute to Robert Lee Bobbitt and made it a permanent record of the State. Their recognition was sent to various members of the family.

The First Presbyterian Church of San Antonio wrote an appreciation for their faithful and devoted church member. In their communication they mentioned the following;

"Judge Robert Lee Bobbitt united with the First Presbyterian Church of San Antonio on March 25, 1945 by transfer of his letter from the First Presbyterian Church of Laredo. He was ordained a Ruling Elder in this Church in 1947 and retired from active service as an Elder on rotation in 1963. His tenure is remembered and appreciated for his willing participation in the life of the Church, and his steadfast guidance and encouragement in the faith will long be cherished. He was humble in the sight of God and grateful for His many blessings to us all. His counsel and Christian witness have touched us all in our life in this Church. The Congregation of this Church in recognition of his long and faithful service, elected him to the office of Elder Emeritus in 1966."
