  1. We are so sorry to learn of Bob’s passing. I have known Bob and Edith for more than 65 years. He and I enjoyed many stories and his humor. He will be missed.

  2. My deepest sympathy to you all. I enjoyed talking with Bobby out at the Railroad. We traded cowboy stories and train stories while he worked on the Dinkies. I would repair the track damage from the derailments. A lot of them back then. Bobby was a tough ole Boy. He never missed a day of work because of snow. He would clean the road out to the main road before work. I witnessed him load a gooseneck trailer with hay to the brim all by himself. I want to Thank Bobby for being my friend and making me feel special. May God Bless and comfort you during this difficult time.

  3. Our deepest condolences go out to you, Edith, and the families of Bobby Robinson. Bobby was a very special man to many. As stated he knew no strangers. Bobby was a good story teller and always had you hanging on for the ending. Bobby you will be missed by more people than you may realize. We will continue to hold our love and memories of you in our hearts. God Bless.
