work appeared in over 200 magazines, including Southwest Review,
Exquisite Corpse, Another Chicago Magazine, The Texas Observer,
Texas Jazz and Bob was a regular contributor to DallasArtsRevue (when

Bob spoke his mind whatever the situation and cut a wide and irreverent
swath wherever he went. As director of WordSpace, and as founder and
operator of the Barnburner Press, he supported and encouraged countless
writers, singers and artists throughout Texas and beyond, and he inspired
many with his example of living and writing on his own terms.
He is survived by his wife Adrienne Cox
Trammell; son Clinton Hot Horse Trammell; sister and brother-in-law Billye
Sue and Wade Byrum, and numerous nieces and nephews.
A memorial will be held at 4 pm Tuesday,
