As a child, Robbie often played pranks on his siblings and swore them to secrecy or his siblings would incur the “wrath of Robbie.” He was devoted to and protective of his mother and loved his family. Robbie knew a great deal of family history and had connections to many family members on both the maternal and paternal sides of the family. He had a great sense of humor and an outgoing personality. He was creative and did not allow others to define his path. He was a maverick and believed in living life to the fullest. Robbie had a way of connecting very effortlessly to others and enjoyed talking, laughing, and telling stories so well that one would feel instantly transported to the event about which he had spoken. Of all of Charles Sr.’s and Rita’s children, Robbie was the risk-taker and had an indomitable spirit, often leading us as children down a risky path with our parents. Robbie was a loving father who loved, was very proud of, and cared deeply about his son, Robert Jr. He loved and was very proud of his nephews and nieces and his god-daughters. He was proud of and cherished his brothers and sisters. He was very close to many of his cousins as well. He could be counted on to be present at many family events. Robbie had a serious side to his personality and was deeply reflective and introspective about those things that were most important in life such as family, friends, and having meaningful connections with others. He was very interested in researching the family history on both sides of his family. Robbie, you will be deeply missed, forever loved, and never forgotten.
