    Randy, Linda, children, I am so so extremely sorry for the loss....I have no words that will completely comfort you, I know that, but Robbie, as long as I have known him, I have known him as a good
    man and a good person, and even though we lost touch, as a lot of people do when we grow up, he was always a good friend, and I have never forgotten and will never forget the good times he, Curtis
    and I always had together. He will be surely missed, and never ever forgotten.

    I know Robbie personally from dating his step son Cody. Robbie was a very wonderful man, he could put a smile on anyone's face. Never knew anyone as hard working and family oriented as him. You could
    run to him for any advice. He will be truely missed by many. I just saw him 2 weeks ago, I'll never forget his smile. I'm so sorry for your lost and may his soul forever rest in piece. #flyhighsawyer

    I knew Robbie a while back and will never forget how great he was. Always smiling and would give the shirt off his back to help someone in need. Very loving man. So sad that he was taken from the
    world so early. Condolences to the family.

    I've known Robbie since I was 13! He always had a smile on his face, he never had a frown! He was a sweet hearted Man,always had to do something! We used to hang out back in the day then after school
    we lost connection then reunited a couple months ago & now this truly sad!

    I am so sorry to hear Robby is gone. I remember how much he loved to fish as a kid. It seemed like Robby, Eric, and Jason were always fishing when we came to visit Grandma and Grandpa and family. I
    know the boys always loved to play together. I am so sorry Aunt Linda, Amanda, and Alicia. I know there are no words to bring him back but know that your large family of brothers and sisters or
    cousins are here you for to lean on at any time. I wish that we could all be there to surround you and his children with love but instead you are in are heart and thoughts and so is he. I love you so
