I lived with Robby in the Duker house in Louisville. I can honestly say that year was one of the best. He made it his daily goal to make others laugh. I didn’t have the foresight then but making others laugh seemed to ease his internal struggles. I know he will continue to foster laughter beyond. Sending all the light and love from Alaska ❤️

I will never forget a young man full of heart and smiles. Playing baseball in Grandpa and grandmas backyard, cartoons, and joking around together. It breaks my heart to hear the sad news. I’m so sorry there is no greater heartache than the loss of a child no matter how old. Praying for comfort for everyone and healing. I will cherish all the good memories no matter how small. I love you guys and I miss everyone so much.
