I will always have fond memories of my dear cousin, RJ, from both when we were children and later in life. He was a kind and gentle man with a good sense of humor and wonderful heart. My heartfelt condolences to Angela, Jason, Jeremia, Robert, their wives and children. The world has lost a man that made it a better place.
With love,
Beth Brabbs

Heartfelt condolences to Angela, Jacob, Jeremia, Robert and all the grand children. Having grown up with the Brabb family I can tell you Robert was a sweet gentle person that our family was happy to know and be related to. We have sent a donation to the American Lung Association in his honor. When Patty and I get back from Texas we will see if we have any pictures we can share with you. I wish I could share all the ones in my head. I know they would bring a smile to your face as they do to me. All our love. Dick and Patty Nellett.

Tim and Katie Brabbs, and family
