There are no words to express the sorrow we feel in hearing of Robbie's passing. His smiles, humor, and laughter always brightened the room. Patti, you and Robbie were a team of joy; it was just fun to be around both of you. We grieve for your loss and heartache. We pray that God's comfort and peace will surround you, and Brooke and family. With our love, Linda and Lewis.

Our deepest condolences. I had some great memories with Robbie. From the baseball games, to trips to New York to ride with FDNY, to learning the fire service. Robbie was a great guy and is going to be missed.

Patti and Brooke,
I’m so sorry for your lose such great memories with you all from eating breakfast after dad dropped me off, to running around the yard with the sprinkler. Robbie was a great guy and have so many good memories and stories because of him from my child hood and he was one the people who showed me what it means to be a fireman. Hope all is well during this tough time
