To the Richadrson family
Please accept my sincere sympathy on your loss.
When my daughter was in a complete leg cast she was at LLC. When she came home she couldn’t find enough words
to express how good your son was to her. Apparently he carried her everywhere she needed to go.
I am very sorry for your loss. I have not seen Robbie since high school, but I knew him since elementary school and we spent many a day travelling the woods behind his house in Brooklyn, on our way to the Tran scotia motel (to get fries) or wherever else we were headed. I lived a couple houses down the road.

Charles and Elizabeth; We were sorry to hear of Robert’s passing. To all the family and friends, may you feel the comfort of the Lord, as you lean on him. May the memories live on in you hearts as treasures.
My sincere sympathy to the Richardson family on your loss
I remember my daughter being at LLC with a complete leg cast on .
When she came home all she could talk about was a great guy who “piggy backed” her all over the grounds.
I found out later that it was Robbie Thanks to him she had a great experience.
I was shocked to read this message this morning and am so very sorry for your loss. The loss of a son, brother, father, partner and friend brings so much pain and sorrow within a famiy and I pray for God’s supernatural strength to carry you all through this difficult time. I pray for a peace that can only come from Him and that He will surround you all with the love and support that you have been to so many throughout your lives. The Bible says that we mourn with those that mourn and that He is our comforter and very help in our times of need. I am truly sorry for your loss and I feel your pain as does the Father. With love and sincere condolences, Rhonda Fralic
I know it came fast, he will be missed by many of us. Although I personally never got to meet him face to face he became a friend on Facebook, when I lost my mom last year him and his wife were there in words which helped me through my grief. I am very blessed to have gotten to know the person he is. He was kind hearted, generous when it came to others. Till we meet in Heaven My friend.
Dear Charles, Elizabeth & Cathy and family,

Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your loved one. Robbie was a larger than life character always full of fun and laughter. He used to come up to my dads (Eric Huskins) to get his power saw sharpened . A life taken way to soon, he had many roads left to travel. Take care of each other.

Cathy and family,
I have lots of fond memories of Robbie from my youth. I am shocked to be reading his obituary. I ran into him a few years ago and he hadn’t changed a bit.
May heartfelt condolences to his family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I was so sorry to hear this. I will be thinking of you all.

Dear Charles, Elizabeth, Cathy and family. Heartfelt Condolences on Robbie’s passing.
I first met Robbie when I was Camp Nurse at Long Lake Baptist Youth Camp. We became good friends and through him I met Cathy who became my little Sister of my heart. I was welcomed into your family and spent many happy hours with you all. Robbie and I would go off on many long drives exploring Nova Scotias back roads and small communities. Laughing and joking the miles away.
Alas we grow up and started our adult lives. I am sorry that we all drifted apart as we moved to different communities. Facebook became our meeting ground. I will always remember the funloving young man of my youth. Cathy you are still my little Sister of my heart and Charles and Elizabeth you are forever dear in my heart. My wheelchair has kept me away from friends and family these past 7 years but you are always in my thoughts. My friendship with Robbie has given me lasting gifts of being a part of your lives. Love and hugs to you all. Wanda Wentzell Baron
My sincerest condolences to Robbie’s family and friends. Growing up in Brooklyn, I’ve known Robbie for most of my life. He will be dearly missed. May you Rest In Peace.

I was one of the 10000 who joined the East Hants recipe/food sharing group. I always appreciated how Robert tried so hard to help out the less fortunate, gone too soon
