I worked with Robbie Jon a lot in 2015, 2016 and part of 2017 in Milwaukee, WI as consultants. We worked a lot, but also had a lot of fun together during our time off. We went to baseball games, concerts, and how he loved the crab legs at Potawatomie Casino. Even though I only knew him during this short time, I learned how he loved life and his family. He will be missed. Condolences to Lori, Jon and family.

Condolences to the Brooks family.
I had the pleasure to work for Robby for eight years at P-4 in Wisconsin. I enjoyed his friendship and his humor. He was a great guy that always has a smile on his face and a positive attitude. his southern charm was always present. He will be missed by his adopted Wisconsin family. RIP brother. L

Robby Jon and I grew up together. Our parents rented an apartment in the same building, so Wanda and my mother Jean took turns watching after us. We had a great time growing up together. We had lost touch over the years, but did talk a few times and meet at a rest stop just to see each other once. He will be missed. I tlaked with Scott this morning adn he has a story about RJ and me when we were very young.
