Bob, also known to some residents as Tom, was hit on Old Georgia 5 near the Serenade subdivision, where he is often known to roam the sidewalks and chase passing police cars.
On his Facebook page, which has garnered almost 1,500 fans, a page administrator posted the news Sunday around 4 p.m.
“We are so thankful for all the happy memories we have of him and how in some ways he brought the community of Woodstock together. We love you so much, Bob! You were a beautiful, hilarious, fun, and brave turkey,” a status update read.
Jeff Moon, Woodstock city manager, said the bird was buried on the grounds of the Rubes Creek Water Reclamation Facility. A few city employees were in attendance for the bird’s service early Monday morning, Moon said.
Various reports on Facebook indicate that the driver who allegedly hit Bob did not stop.
