Robby enjoyed farming for over 60 years, and especially loved those workers who lived and worked with him on the farm. He loved life and lived it well. His motto was, "You got to love what you are doin'. I don't care what you are doin'! If you don't love what you are doin', it ain't no need trying to do more of it!"

His funeral service will be at 11:00 a.m., Friday March 24, at the church and interment will follow in the church cemetery.
