I remember Robbie so well. He was much more that my friend Candy’s big brother. He had a smile as big as outdoors. Always looked out for us. Sometimes we were smuggled into the drive-in in the back of the Cook family station wagon. There “might” have been beer. In my day, Robbie was one of the coolest older boys around. So sorry to hear of his loss.

I will miss your warm toothless smile my brother. Always will there be a smile in my heart for the times we partied in the late 70's and early 80's and the many years afterward that we recalled those great times. You were a true friend that no matter where we ran into each other we had time to talk and laugh. Rest In peace and I will catch you later.

Robbie was a very special classmate and friend. The days were always brighter when he was around, and his smile would light up any room. Special man!

Robbie Robbie Robbie.... so very sorry to read this. I remembering slapping your face when you pinched my butt while serving you a drink at the Temple hotel years & years ago when you first returned from touring with the Grateful Dead. I also remember you visiting my desk & chatting years later while working at the courthouse. Everyone adorned you. You made me an oak stand for my computer monitor which I actually still have. So so sorry to hear of your passing.... you were "one of the good ones" Robbie..... Kathy
