Robert (Robbie) C. Williams, Jr. passed away Saturday morning February 6, 2021 at Capital Caring in Aldie, VA after a long illness.
Born December 19, 1980 in Fairfax, VA. Robbie graduated from Warren County High School and attended Lord Fairfax Community College. In August 2001 Robbie joined the United States Coast Guard. He loved the Caribbean route, he was assigned to the Legare and quite often could not believe he was paid riding the high sea’s stopping at the different islands.
During his military stay he earned an “E” Ribbon, Bronze Star, Sea Service Ribbon and The Coast Guard Pistol Marksman Ribbon.
Robbie’s life was never short on excitement. He was an adventurer, pirate, and gambler. He had the gift of life and had to give it back. Robbie loved his parents, his two boys, Connor and Cassius. He celebrated those boys. The friendships he made were immense. It was his smile, his warm soul, his acts of kindness. Robbie expressed that often, he truly loved them, particularly Thane Aaron Wahl, as Robbie said the night before he passed, and Tina Taylor, his personal nurse, by choice, he listened to as she encouraged him. Just knowing and loving his boys and his friends was the success story of his life.
Robbie was private in many ways being an only child. Growing up his room was personal to him but Matt Laub would always push that to the limit, but on snow days Robbie would be the first one up to Matt’s house to eat the food Yogi would prepare. 12 pancakes one time.
Robbie is survived by his boys, Connor and Cassius, whom he will always love. His mom and dad, Vicki and Bob. His Aunt Becky, “Who always saved my mom’s day”, and Rose M. James, his beloved Grandmother. His friends who made his life a memory for them, which he hopes your hearts will be full and continue on. Robbie’s favorite quote “The Inches we need are all around us, because that is where the Living is”, from Any Given Sunday.
The family will receive friends at Maddox Funeral Home between 2-3pm on Saturday, February 20, 2021. Services to follow thereafter.
