When his mother died, he and his other younger brother was brought to the Manila Boy's Town, a temporary refuge for abandoned and orphaned children. While inside the orphanage, he served as an altar boy and would be sent out on the streets to sell various things like newspapers,sampaguita flowers and shined shoes. Mr. Suarez showed exemplary intelligence while inside the orphanage. He was a consistent leader of his group and graduated valedictorian. When he reached puberty and it's time for him to leave the orphanage, he worked as an errand boy at the Manila City Hall in the Office of the City Mayor of then Mayor Arsenio Lacson.

To help pay for his college education, Bobby worked as a janitor-messenger for the Philippine branch of international movie distributor, J. ARTHUR RANK FILM DISTRIBUTOR INC.
