Robbie imagined becoming a super villain scientist inventor that would one day

He laughed loudly, he danced wildly and he loved his family. Each day over the
past 8-plus years we have fallen more and more in love with him and will continue
to do so. He fought hard, we gave him our best, and although he never became a
super villain he will forever be our biggie boy, our love boy, our toughie, our
scientist-inventor, our hero.
Robbie is survived by his younger sisters, Brookie “Bear” and Leah (his googly
bear), as well as his proud parents Erin and Paul, his Papa Bob, grandparents, great
grandparents, aunts, uncles, great aunts and uncles, cousins and Godparents.
We give special thanks to all of his providers at Boston Children’s Hospital who
cared so deeply and skillfully for our Robbie. Everyone was amazing but a special
gratitude extends to our second home on 11 South MICU. Without them we
would never have come this far.
Please send donations in Robbie’s memory to Boston Children’s Hospital.
