He had a unique sense of humor, and he enjoyed talking about his cooking challenges; I understand that he was quite a cook! I got to hear him and Lane playing music together a few times after they had both become so very accomplished. Robby was a truly generous young man with all of his abilities and kindness. I will continue to pray for Amber and all of you, that God will bless and heal each of you with His great love.

  20. Dear White Family,

    My heart aches with yours as we all grieve the end of Robby’s life with us on earth. He was a student of mine at Brookhaven, where he worked hard to achieve his goals, but always made time for friends in need and to make us smile. His gentle spirit touched so many in big and small ways. My prayer is that with time comfort and peace can be found in beautiful memories.

  21. Dearest White Family,
    I’m so very sorry for the loss of your son Robbie, who so deeply touched my life with his daily smile! I was inspired by him when I worked in the BHC fine arts division I had the opportunity to observe a young man every day with passion and dedication eagerly pursuing his dreams in music. His caring spirit and generosity to others touched all of us who encountered him and were lucky enough to call him a friend. Lane and Shae I send my prayers to you and
    my deepest sympathy and condolences to your family.
    Much love,
    Barbara Tunstall

  22. I met Robby back in 2014 at Brookhaven College, we played together in the guitar ensemble. After that, we became good friends as we share the love for music, and we had great conversations about anything. He told me how important his family was for him as well as his love for the Lord.

    I would never forget his very unique sense of humor, great talent for the guitar, and genuine personality. You’ll be surely missed.

    My prayers and thoughts are with you all, dear family White and friends.

    This one is for you, one of my favorite worship songs:

  23. Kim, my heart truly breaks for you and your family. I just found out about Robby. You guys are so very special to us and we are praying that God will be with each of you, and that He will give you the strength needed to get through this very difficult time. We love you, Diann Deckard, Barbara Berry and family.

  24. I’m at a loss for words..still cant believe it.I went to school with Robby’s brother lane,and ran across robby in the community a few times,he was a polite gentlemen..may god bless the family..

  25. I just recently learned of Robby’s passing and wished to add my condolences. Robby was in my Music and World Cultures class at TWU and over the course of the semester I really grew to like him. He was hard working, helpful, and had a great sense of humor. I can still picture him sitting in his usual seat, playing guitar riffs before class started. He was always willing to lend a hand and asked insightful and thought provoking questions, which I was grateful for (especially as a new professor). I’m honored I got to know and work with him. He will be missed.
