Robin went on to earn his Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Southern Mississippi and enjoyed a successful career as an organizational / industrial psychologist. Robin served his clients worldwide, travelling often to Asia, Europe and throughout the United States. Robin made his home in Hattiesburg, MS, raising his two daughters, Brittany and Alex, serving his community, helping neighbors and enjoying the love and companionship of family and friends. Robin enjoyed gardening, hunting, fishing, music, art and supporting his beloved Golden Eagles of the University of Southern Mississippi. He lovingly shared himself and his larger-than-life personality with friends and family. In short, to know him was to love him. Robin’s last months were spent managing and enduring a terminal illness know as ALS. During this time he was surrounded by a multitude of friends and family, all celebrating his life and reflecting their love, adoration and admiration for their Robin – the best son, brother, cousin, nephew, father, uncle and friend anyone could wish for. With dignity and grace, Robin lived his life to the very fullest and with dignity and grace Robin left this world peacefully on June 13, 2018.
