Robert "Robbie" Mudroch
June 23, 1993 – February 12, 2019
On Tuesday, February 12, 2019, Robert “Robbie”James Mudroch, passed away from bone cancer at age 25.
Robbie was born on June 23,1993 In Westerville, OH to Jim and Cindy (Graves) Mudroch. He attended high school at OSSM Oklahoma School of Science and Math. In December 2015, he graduated from the University of Tulsa with a double major in mathematics and computer science.
In 2018, Robbie was offered his “dream job” with Google, but cancer kept him from accepting. He had a love for outdoor photography, liked to write music, enjoyed programming, playing computer games, chatting online with friends, and he loved sloths! He enjoyed going to the Butterfly Center and visiting Curly the sloth at the Houston zoo.
Robbie was known for his quick wit, funny jokes, infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit.
Robbie was preceded in death by his grandparents, Arnold and Margaret (Riechers) Graves of Platteville, WI and John and Peg (Cook) Mudroch of Fredonia, WI as well as his uncle, Bruce Larson, and cousin, Jonathon Mudroch.
He is survived by his parents, Jim and Cindy Mudroch of Katy, TX, his sisters, Ruth (Nick) Holland and Lynn Mudroch of Tulsa, OK; step grandma Marion Mudroch and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

I met Robbie at a Marfan Conference in Chicago many years ago. This was the only photo I could find of us together, I think that conference was from 2012. Since then, Robbie and I texted each other frequently and I considered him one of my closest friends. He was the first person I ever came out to, and was always so accepting to me and willing to lend a year to any problems I was having. When I felt like nobody else would be able to understand my pain with chronic illness, we would complain about our knees together. I remember telling him how I appreciated talking to him about what was going on in my life, and he was surprised and said he was happy too that he had a friend where we could vent to one another. I wish I could have seen him in person again before he passed, but we had fun FaceTiming each other a few times. To the Mudroch family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Robbie was truly a vibrant person and had such a big heart, and I'm so glad he was a part of my life.
Robbie, thank you for letting me be a part in your journey through life. I'll be watching the next season on One Punch Man in your honor.
Love you always,
