Robbie was the kind of person that made you feel like you'd known him forever even if you just met him. We will remember is sense of humor and his ability to bring a group together with laughter. Bobbi & Dwight

Sheri, Kelley and family;
It was with great sadness that I learned of my dear friend and classmate's passing. Robbie was always kind and supportive, the first one to ask if you needed anything. I so fondly remember going to Papa and Nana's for Sunday lunch and working in the orange grove. Robbie and I both learned to drive manual transmission on Papa's truck and we both had so much fun.
Robbie and I were in school together from first grade at St. Monica's, Junior High and graduated with the great class of PSHS 1974. And who can forget all those great times at Bernice and Roy Sr.'s house on Kirby St. and Mosely Ave. I will miss my friend, but will hold onto all the wonderful memories and be thankful for having the incredible fortune of being his friend and the great times we had!
My thoughts and prayers are with you and al the family for God's peace.
