The church service was beautiful, and extremely moving. As well as traditional hymns, music played on the day included the Judy Garland classic, Somewhere Over The Rainbow, a song familiar to Robbie when he was a young boy.
There were several floral tributes, including Robbie’s name in white and red flowers, complimented by a beautiful floral red heart. Robbie’s grand-parents presented nineteen red roses to represent every year they had loved their grandson. There was also a Top Gear Stig helmet, made-up of white flowers and black ribbon, from a group of Robbie’s friends.
The celebration of Robbie’s life, held at the Waggon and Horses Inn at Doulting Beacon, was attended by a huge number of Robbie’s family, friends and former colleagues.
Two cousins, Dult Burt and Lee Manaton, from Robbie’s original home town of Tiverton, in Devon, got together with old friends and some of Robbie’s newer, Somerset friends, colleagues, including many from Macdonalds in Street, and former fellow students from Bridgwater College, to put together a slide-show of photographs of Robbie, enjoying his life over the years. These were accompanied by messages from many individuals who had known Robbie.
A filled message book was presented from the staff of Tesco’s in Shepton Mallet, where Robbie had recently worked both in-store and as a delivery driver, a very touching keepsake for his family to treasure.
Robbie’s family would like to thank all who have supported them through difficult days, all who attended Robbie’s funeral and all who sent messages of condolences and love.
