It has been many years since Robbie and I have been acquainted. However the years I spent with him in my childhood will never be forgotten. He very much defined my life growing up and in turn affected the person I am today. Robbie was a great friend and the times we spent together are unforgettable. You will be remembered as a great friend!

I feel lucky to have known Rob, and will always remember him with love. His enthusiasm was infectious, and all of my memories of him are happy and bright. I will never forget his kindness and his smile whenever he was at family events. My thoughts and love are with you during this time.

Upon hearing the very sad news about my childhood buddy Robby, I was immediately transported back to a world that existed on Knowlton Avenue in Kenmore, NY in the early 90’s. Street football, basketball, kickball and so many sports that he and I often arranged with the neighborhood kids because we were the oldest of the crew and thus the “captains” to pick teams. Even though it was often him and a few other boys (Chris Bell and Lance Boos) playing with a bunch of us girls (me, my sisters Eryn & Jenny, Joanna & Joyce Beers, Laura & Shannon Thompson, Lauren & Jennifer Alessi and others), it didn’t seem to matter to him as long as we could play the game. I was probably one of the more competitive of the bunch and I think Rob respected that and treated me as an equal, which was not always the case with other guys his age. I will never forget the time I tackled him with full force trying to prove my abilities and inadvertently caused him to split his knee open on the sidewalk requiring lots of stitches. (Sorry Linda, I don’t know if I ever really apologized to him or you for that!) I remember spending the next couple weeks watching movies with him at his house while he was recovering. Those memories on Knowlton filled with block parties, swimming pools, bikes, lawn games and long summer days will forever be part of who I am and will now be that much more bittersweet. Robby and I also attended both Kenmore West and SUNY Geneseo together. While we didn’t see each other much, our paths crossed periodically and it always gave me a sense of comfort that he was there because he was part of “home”.

To all of Robby's close friends and family, I am very sorry for your loss and I hope he will live in your memories as he will live in mine.

My first memory of Rob was actually from the day he was born. My brother and I, along with our cousins Wendy and Stacey were at our families’ cottage at Hanford Bay. My mom came running down to the beach and said, “What have we all been waiting for?!” The four of us immediately answered, “For Linda and Bus to have the baby!” My Mom exclaimed “It’s a boy!” And from that moment on I was in love with my baby cousin. We visited Disney World together when he was just 10 months old, we spent every Thanksgiving and Christmas together, every 4th of July ( even this year spent the 4th together) together when we were growing up. Rob went out of his way to find me on my wedding day ( in a sea of 300+ people) to wish us congratulations and make sure he told me how proud he was of me. He was only 15 and was the most mature guest we had. :) Rob truly was my first baby - I unearthed no fewer than 100 pictures of me holding him every chance I had. He melted my heart from day one and will always have a place there for him. I cherish the last time we spoke - on the front lawn of the very same place I knew he was born; telling him how much I loved him and how proud of him I was. He told one of my daughters “Don’t break too many hearts.” right before he left. We all have a hole from your absence now - but we all know you’re somehow still with us. We love you, Robbie Taylor.
