As a young man Robin worked by is fathers’ side at a family owned gas station for many years! He admired his father Charlie and was proud sharing some of the same accomplishments such as being a Mason. Robin has many hobbies, he loved being a pilot and flying to places such as New Hampshire with Linda Converse on a Sunday just to enjoy a lobster roll and a cup of coffee! He loved auto body work restoring many cars including a Pontiac GTO 1967, a 1955 Thunderbird and a 1956 Thunderbird one of which was previously his fathers! Robin was so proud showing off his work at car shows winning many trophies!

A special thank you to his loyal friends; Jimmy Morrison + Marsha, John Cormier + Sharon, The Waterhouse family, and many others. To all the staff at St. Francis and Yale New Haven, thank you for taking special care.

Robin was one very nice guy. I will always remember him as being my friend. the memories of being his helper in restoring a 56 Ford Victoria that belongs to a man from Stafford. Robin did a body off restoration on that car and what a beauty it was when completed. You can see the car on Youtube under the heading of "SONNY`S VICTORIA"
He had a great sense of humor and each time I came to his shop he would tell me the joke of the day and he had some great ones.
One time one of my antique cars broke down on Plains road in Tolland so I called Robin to get a tow to my home just a short distance away and as he is towing me a state trouper from the Tolland barracks pulled us over because he wanted to look over the antique car so naturally we entertained the trouper by showing everything about the car and as the trouper pulled away we were very relieved as that antique car was not even registered. We thought our goose was cooked but it looked like we had gotten away with it . As we got back into our respective vehicles and Robin started to tow me again, the truck jerked forward and tore the bumper off Robins truck as I had forgotten to remove my foot from the brake....He stepped out of the truck and broke into a smile . He said I guess those old cars are made of real steel... That is the kind of guy he was.
As I write this My heart misses my dear friend

I was so sorry to have missed Robins wake but I am in a very compromised position having heart surgery a few months ago. My heart, prayers and blessings go with him and his wife and family. God Bless Robin on his journey to a place that he can fly his planes, drive any vehicle he chooses and never work again! He was a wonderful man who will be missed by many. God Bless you Robin, fly with the angels!

We were so shocked to hear of Robin's passing. He was a kind and genuine person. There are not many people my husband trusted to work on his beloved 1988 VW Westfalia. Robin was among the very few. Holding his family close in our hearts and prayers. Godspeed Robin.

My dear Linda my friend. I am sorry to hear about Robin.
He was such a great guy and so friendly every time I saw him helping with something at your salon. You two were a great couple and I loved hearing about your plane rides.
My prayers and thoughts are with you Linda. Love to you and Robins family .
