    Robbie’s presence in our community will be missed. He was never too busy to visit neighbors, help elderly friends with repairs and check in on them. He was unfailingly kind and supportive to our parents and we will never forget his goodness and what it meant to our family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Karen and his whole family.
