According to family members, friends and family of Bobby Aikin are invited to gather at the Sam Rayburn Student Center on the campus of A&M-Commerce Sunday from 3:00pm to 5:00pm to "share stories and memories, and a toast to Bob's life."

Bobby Aikin of The Aikin Group, former Texas legislator, lobbyist for ETSU and UT, and radio show host, died at his home in Commerce on the afternoon of Wednesday, June 13th.

The celebration will be an informal gathering meant to give all in attendance an opportunity to recount and enjoy stories from his incredible life.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, those wishing to commemorate him may do so by making a generous contribution to the charity of your choice.

The Sam Rayburn Student Center is located at 2600 S. Neal Street in Commerce. Hotel accommodations can be made through the Hotel Azul at 903-886-4777 and mentioning the Aikin service.
