William Scott Robb

January 24, 1955November 30, 2018

William loved life and he had many amazing stories of his experiences and travels. He loved his family, and his friends and he loved his job as a longshoreman at the Port of Houston. William was smart and kind, he was generous with both his time and his money, he was funny and witty with a great sense of humor and he will be sorely missed.

William was incredibly brave during his battle with cancer, and his courageous fight taught us that life is precious and that a strong faith is by far the greatest medicine of all. He had no fears and no regrets and he knew that death was merely a part of this grand adventure called life.

William is survived by, Nancy Joy Diamond, his best friend and partner of many years, his three children, Chris Robb, Thompson Robb and Devin Despres, his sister, Kathy Hammond, brothers Douglas Robb and Alan Robb and sister-in-law Barbara, his nephew Cody Hammond and family, nieces Alex Robb and Sydney Maxwell and family, his friend Julia Thompson and a host of other friends and relatives.

We would like to thank all of the people that helped William through this part of his journey, Eddie Hammer, the doctors and staff at MD Anderson Cancer Center, the Silverado Hospice, the I.L.A., and all of his wonderful friends.
