    Robin will be missed by many including myself. He was a very kind man that didn’t have a mean bone in his body.

    He taught me how to fish in my late 20’s bringing me to tag along on his fishing trips. I thought that was pretty cool of him since it was he and his buddies and he went out of his way to include me. There were many laughs and good times on those trips with Robin always the center of attention amongst his closest friends. If Rob was around the fire, so was everyone else, If Rob was playing poker, so was everyone else.

    I also have fond memories of going to Husky games by boat and hanging out down at the lake house talking about boating which was an interest we shared.

    I got to spend a good amount of time with him the last few months and that helps out coping with our loss.

    You will be missed RT!

    Dad…You are missed. You are now with Mimi, Baba & Tom in heaven, and we know you’re no longer suffering. I have many memories of going to the cabin and spending time at the lake house as a young girl and as I got older spending time with you with our kids. You were a thoughtful grandpa “Paca” to all 6 of the grandkids and they love you! May you rest in peace Dad. I love you.
