Bobby Poisson was born on December 8,1955 in Cheverly, Maryland. He graduated from St Jerome Academy, Northwestern High School, the University of Maryland and the University of Maryland Law School in Baltimore and was later admitted to the Maryland Bar in December of 1982.

After dabbling in the practice of law, with the death of his father, he dedicated more than 30 years to the care of his mother, sacrificing his law career for his family.  Bobby coached youth football at the Hyattsville Boys Club for many years and participated in hundreds of volunteer events at the University of Maryland and in the Hyattsville and surrounding community.  He ran for city council of Hyattsville on the platform of expanding Magruder Park. Bobby loved his nephews and nieces dearly and he absolutely adored the University of Maryland.

Because of the Covid Pandemic, a memorial service and reception will be scheduled at a later date.
