Robb was the most self-sacrificing individual I have ever had the pleasure of calling friend. He would drop what he was doing to help anyone that he thought might need it, he welcomed the opportunity with open arms. I use the word opportunity because he never looked at helping someone as a challenge or chore. No matter the issue, big or small, Robb would be there, and he would get the job done regardless of what the downside impact may have had on him. The only thing he cared about was to help and he did it with a smile and with an optimism unlike any other. There were so many times I asked Robb to put himself first and although he promised he would, he just couldn’t do it, it wasn’t in his nature to be first. Everyone around him came first and that was his life’s purpose.
I always knew Robb was kind and had a huge heart, but I never knew the full impact his actions had on 100’s and probably 1000’s of people throughout his life, until now. Seeing all the heartfelt messages come in from friends, family, colleagues and clients proved one thing, he treated everyone like they were the most important person and showed a level of genuine care and emotional generosity that was unparalleled. I am so incredibly sad right now, but I imagine Robb seeing all the love that is being shown and I can literally envision that smile light up his face and the tears that swelled in his eyes every time he knew his actions made a difference. Robb was not perfect but he was one of the best human beings I will ever have had the honor of knowing. I will miss him dearly and will honor his memory by reminding myself that kindness, above all else, goes a long way. Sincerest condolences to Veronica, Soffeya, and to the family that Robb held so dear.

I am so sad to learn of Robb’s death. He was a very special person. The family has experienced so much loss and pain these past few months. May God grant you consolation in your bereavement and may Robb’s memory be for an eternal blessing.

Sincere Congratulations to the Cohen (Winnerman) family on the passing of Robb. Age and distance has kept us from engaging with the family. The big connection to each of us was that my father, Max, and your grandfarther, Nathan, were brothers. We lived in Winthrop and your grandparents lived in Chelsea when we were growing up. When Max & Bess retired to Sunrise, FL, Sonny & Jeanette lived close by and were very close and a huge help to my parents. When my fathere died and left my mother alone, Sonny and Jeanette watched over her and were a big help. We all lived a distance away from each other, spread out from New England to Florida to California.
We thank you for staying in contact and wish you all well. We’re living in an assisted living residence in Rhode Island, having moved, after 60 years of living in Connecticut. Out traveling days are over but our thoughts are with all of you on this sad day.

Spell check has a mind of its own and I didn’t catch it.
Sincere Condolences. I’m beyond embarrassed.

In the brief contact that I had with Robb, his warmth, caring, desire to help in any possible way and his lovely sense of humor touched me deeply. I was so looking forward to seeing him in person here in Florida. My love and prayers go out to his family, friends, and colleagues.
John & Karen Anderson saysMarch 5, 2023 at 6:34 pm
Robb was our trusted financial advisor for the last few years. He was so smart, conscientious, warm hearted and helpful. Karen and I will miss our conversations with him, which always ranged over many interesting topics unrelated to finance. He was a good and interesting person; always thoughtful and kind to us. We wish strength and good memories for all his family and friends as you weather the loss of Robb. Rest in Peace.
