Robbie, loved by many, gave to all, left too soon.
My brother Robbie was good man. He would give anyone the shirt off his back. March 30th, 2019 is a day his family will never forget. Robbie lost his life in attempts to re-enter his home we believe to save his dog during his home fire. He left behind a son and family members. He gave to so many but this is something that some of us never think about. We are not prepared when lives are taken at such a young age unexpectedly. This has been very hard to take in and at moments seem unreal. My nephew is my brothers next of kin. Losing a father is heart wrenching enough, but now he is left with trying to make funeral arrangements. Sadly, my brother had no life insurance policy. I am helping my nephew and his mother search for funding so that he can have a proper burial. He just lost his father and best friend, a teenager should not have to worry if he can find funding to give his dad a funeral. He deserves that. My brother helped anyone and everyone. All funds will be applied towards funeral expenses and if any extra for Robbie's son and mother to be used for his needs. https://www.thebatavian.com/howard-b-owens/one-person-dead-in-house-fire-on-evans-street-batavia/530065?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook+ Read More
