Memories Timeline


  1. Mr. Robb was a teacher when I was at South and also when my children were there. What a wonderful gentle man. My condolences to his family and friends.

  2. I was saddened to hear of David’s passing. I had him for both English and Journalism at South HS (Class of 1969). I had 3 teachers at South that greatly influenced my future career and David N. Robb was one of these. A kind, wonderful and patient man, he helped me publish one of my short stories. Rest in Peace, my friend. You were one of the great ones. Thank you for everything you did for me.

  3. Colt from the 1970 class. Mr. Rabb was a wonderful English teacher. His methods and assignments were new and different from any I’d had until then. Learned a lot that helped with further education writing as well as work communication. Thanks, Mr Rabb!

  4. Can not say it much better than Jerry Brown’s description (above).
    Dave was a life time friend for many of us South alumni.
    He contributed to the betterment of so many lives- including mine.
    He will be sadly missed but not forgotten- “ching”!

  5. Many prayers to the family of Mr. Robb. Thank you Mr. Robb for all you did for the students of Pueblo South HS. A donation to the CSU-Pueblo “Mass Communications and Center of New Media” will be made in your honor.
    “Something Extra for South.”

  6. David was an excellent teacher, a kind soul, and a wonderful friend to many! His legacy will live on in the lives of myriads of students who were fortunate enough to have David as their teacher!

  7. I didn’t have the pleasure of having Dave as a teacher but know many, many kids that sing his praises as a teacher, mentor, and friend. Dave was always interested in what was going on in the lives of others. He was funny and engaging and I will miss him greatly. My condolences to the the entire Robb family. I know they will continually treasure his life and the impact he had upon them and all others whose lives he touched so deeply. Love you, Uncle Dave!

  8. Dear Ron,

    I’m saddened to learn of Dave’s passing. He was more than just a customer to me. His cheerful, positive attitude was a highlight of my day. I’ll remember his smile and laugh. He was one of my “specials.” May God bless and comfort you on the loss of one so dear.

  9. As a representative of Dave’s Centennial High School 1958 graduating class, I am writing to express the deep sorrow that I and many others felt when we read of his passing in the paper. Please accept our condolences in the loss of your loved one and our long-time classmate since grade school. Esther Vitullo Williams

  10. To the Robb family:

    Dave was a part of our family, and we loved him dearly.

    Sending our love and sympathy to each of your family.

  11. In a time when the world needs all the good people it can find the loss of this most generous and loving man is devastating.
    Rest well my friend.
