Although we haven't known Rick and Jody too long, we have always enjoyed their company on our visits to Bent Tree. I think the first thing that comes to mind is genuine and kind when I think of Rick and Jody. Always making me feel welcome in a new location, a new group of people or a gathering of friends. Just a kind soul. Rick will be missed and I feel lucky to have known him. RIP and our sincere condolences to you Jody and all of your family.

As the saying goes, there is no friend like an old friend. I met Ricky in 1974 through a mutual friend (Bob Manning), when his family moved to Lilburn from Tucker. Ricky and I attended Berkmar High School together and quickly became the best of friends. That was easy because Ricky was just a very thoughtful person in every sense of the word. He was a very wise person and a good example to us all. His family was just the best. I have always thought the world of his Mom and Dad, Paula, Pam -and I could never forget little Gigi. Ricky and I built hot rods together and raced around Lilburn and Tucker most nights and weekends. I often look back on it and wonder how we survived it. I remember the ONE time after graduation Ricky and I were stopped by two Gwinnett Police Officers for laying drag and speeding just before we were supposed to report to UGA for new student orientation. Miraculously, Ricky talked the police out of taking me to jail. I’m still not sure what he said, but it worked. Ricky was like that. He never met a stranger and people were just naturally drawn to him. I will never forget the Dark Green ‘69 Mustang Ricky and I almost totally rebuilt in the basement at 622 Ridgeview Drive. That basement was just an awesome place to work on a car and his Mom -who I thought was the coolest Mom ever, just took all the smells, the smoke, and the noise in stride and frequently offered me dinner. Metallic Green was a radical choice for a car color in those days, but it was a beautiful car and fast too. Ricky was so proud of that car.

I never met a more kinder man than Rick Robinson. He was a true gentleman that loved his family and friends. He worked with me back in the 80s as a mechanic at Williams Brothers Concrete and Block Company. He was also very generous, he gave me a wooden cabinet years ago for my garage that a still use. He sold me a car at a very good price once that his family may remember. I bought it without test driving it because his word was as good as gold. Rest In Peace Rick, love you man, until we meet again!
